Our decencies that tilt empires Will join the space between the stars A distant dawn forever alight Impossibly red, arterial bright Times crumbles granite and our memory Enthralls all it calls to eat from its tree Lonely and desperate A ceaseless icy rain Spines supine, lines entwine Anguish fills our days And like the winter's sun Our ancient omens shine but give no heat The leaves of yesteryear They rise then fall back to the earth Born of the sky Where the night filled my eye Sight unseen and unsound Shadows poison the ground Oil black sights they compel me Like hexes and spells Our fate know to us and we know it well We all live in hell Bridge of years That leads to skyward towers Deftly eroded by the Plodding pressing passage of our lives Our brief hungry lives Where did we come from and where do we go Since I awoke here the answer's unknown Venerated Worse for wear Long in the tooth
2.
The sound of rain like sharpening knives Grey mountain faces with gallows in their eyes Pale in her anger This thief of light Lingers like a collapsing sun Boundless A chord strikes A feeling I'll never remember Uncertainty darkens our door Maybe the pain is imagining there's anything Mine today, yours tomorrow These gifts we cannot endure As we turn and falter Our destiny we write in water Blood on the road As above so below On the road to revenge No hope no fear On the road to revenge Be prepared to dig two graves
3.
Boiling ancient light so thick That it gathers in your fingertips Listen to the daybreak Whisper its' sweet deceits We are all alone All the time Until we die Dying skies reflect in eyes They shimmer like wildfires We are all alone All the time Until we die Go ask the sun The worth of one Overthrown Overgrown Upon these wings of desolation Vessels so ancient That they pour out wrath Our timeless creation With six wings apart The eyes all around it Outnumber the stars Each head like a lion, an ox, and a man A spectre despondent With our death in its' hands All things treasured cannot hold Our desires first ash then cold A shroud, our death, we can unfold All that glitters is not gold

Void Eater 06:25
Cruciatus in crucem Haec credam a deo pio, a deo justo, a deo scito? Cruciatus in crucem Tuus in terra servus, nuntius fui, officium perfeci. Cruciatus in crucem Eas in crucem _____________________________________ I'm not myself I knot myself In shapes both risen and profane Brutal restless Brittle rapt Pulled in all directions Our fate now set Once ascended We descend Straight through to the underworld Crest fallen in time we learn An existence now abstraction Creeping dread, miasma The night has its' price Uncaring lights baptize At once emptiness Confines me Resigns me Exalted but still no more Resistant to all that lays before me A darkness that can be felt Aeons die, still I Reach to the stars These bands of amber Become our tombs in time By temple light At once emptiness Confines me Resigns me Exalted but still no more Resistant to all that lays before me I'm no more A great horror Is that losing one's self Can occur as if it were Nothing

What you believe Is the vanity you conceive What you love you don't pen To put in a cage is to put to an end Enamoured of the passion Life-sucking lust You will never gain my trust I'm a misanthropical breed Insatiable in my need to feed Utterly fearless For your luscious flesh I've got an appetite like a war And I always hunger for more Enamoured of the passion Life-sucking lust You will never gain my trust Vicious mammal The blood is my call Pound for pound I am the most vicious of all

Endless 07:36
This harbour I have Withdrawn myself to After weathering the Storms of life A future never comes The past does not exist Our time is not endless Death at the gates again It howls my name A sorrow that fills oceans Unfathomed these depths A future never comes The past does not exist Our time is not endless Nothing lasts Nothing changes Tide Subsides The largest mouthful of ash Atop these mountains of death

about

HERON Vancouver, British Columbia

A man said to the universe:
“Sir, I exist!”

“However,” replied the universe,
“The fact has not created in me
A sense of obligation.”

- Stephen Crane
