I must go…

Posted: August 10, 2010 in Poetry

Phantasmagoric images flash
across in black and white,
endless reels of cinematic visuals,
Roll in the head, in the eyes,
in the fading memory,
of friends and foes,
saints and sinners,
dead, long forgotten drinking brethren,
And countless rumored encounters

a gush of breath gushes for another breath
this is what life has all come to
moonlit eyes sparkle to the dance of darkness
butterfly angels sing their prayers
and whisper into my ears
drowning the unreal I have always clutched to
words fail to flow out the parched lips,
lights dim and disappear
I see mirage of shadows
a confusion of humans,
smell of incense,
shrieks of dying,

I must go….
