THE RISING DEMISE
open my eyes to silents demise, the ink well reseeding.
this replica, my gemini; sitting up, stretching and bleeding.
existing in silhouette, the silence of one.
absorbing the monochrome, cold and numb.
whispers of my twin echo within.
-a labyrinth of sin
a cunning serpent studying its prey.
swimming through tubular steel, assimilating the earth, giving dawn to a day.
inches from contact, i feel the degrees escalate.
i turn my face, clenching my teeth, closing my eyes.
the warm fingertips grazing.
within these final seconds i know what i must do.
I face the light screaming, "How could you?!"
grabbing my face, sending shockwaves throughout my essence.
a sonic boom of brightness floods my fortress with its demanding presence.
all white, all pure.
a pulse within the splendor-grandeur.
I open my eyes and listen to the heartbeat.
a moment of life to forever endure.
yesterday my gemini sought for my end.
today i breathe, today I begin.
