Terzanelle

This is the time of the gathering storm
in despair and the damned and lost loves and sorrow
this is personal apocalypse of emotional swarm

the dream is now silent in this never come morrow
in night’s full stillness, in shadow felled flight.
in despair and the damned and lost loves and sorrow

hush gathers force in the deepening blight
violence of quiet, under dusk’s haunted gaze
in night’s full stillness, in shadow felled flight

no rhythm to moments just repetitive days
the insects of memory, crawl cruel and ravenous
violence of quiet, under dusk’s haunted gaze

this is not random or some sort of accident
deliberate, callous, and some kind of rampage
the insects of memory, crawl cruel and callous

locked in this prison and locked in this cage
keys cast away, and the jailer departed
deliberate, callous, and some kind of rampage

gaol and prison and meaning wholehearted
this is the time of the gathering storm
keys cast away, the jailer departed
this is personal apocalypse of emotional swarm
