More darkness ... you wanted more, right?

La, la, la, la, la ... so it might not be Marilyn Manson, but it's got its own style of darkness, yes?

                    EXISTENCE TRACKS DESCENT

                    a million hooks,
                    a million lines,
                    all grasp and pull,
                    stretch apart,
                    distorting form
                    and one with pain
                    stressed beyond
                    the breaking zone
                    in these depths
                    the mass implodes
                    as pressure rules
                    the unseen day,
                    driving inwards
                    without remorse
                    the crushing dark
                    no rest renews
                    no sleep restores
                    waking nightmares
                    follow into somnolence
                    churning up
                    the undistracted mind
                    to panic states
                    and frantic dreams
                    space is ache,
                    duration anguish,
                    all dimensions
                    of this world
                    exude decay,
                    every axis
                    of existence
                    tracks descent
                    too much beauty
                    and too much loss
                    to venture outside;
                    embracing death,
                    all we value
                    fades away,
                    all we cherish
                    changes and corrodes

Now, if I'm not mistaken, with this entry I'm all caught up with those various little notebooks. Obviously, I've not done audio for a zillion poems, but I have at least gotten everything that was scribbled and scrawled in various places typed up and in a file on the computer. I suppose that's something. So, all the stuff that's likely to be appearing here from now on will be new. I did write about 80% of one today, and need to get that finished up, so that might be showing up as soon as tomorrow. Lucky you, eh?
