Delirious

delirious 2
Well acquainted
with darkness
I was consumed
way beyond my
expiration date
I lay dying
screaming
in delirium
waiting for the end
devoured by
my own hysteria
bleeding out
into the constellations
incoherent
sucked into
a timeless void
a black hole
oblivion

“Look deep into my eyes
you’ll see the abyss
you’ll see the lies”

A force beyond
my imagining
awakened me
breathed life
into my death
I let the winds
of destruction
take me
storms blew me
back to life
naked and ashamed
near to death
my breath restored
my ravaged heart
found a beat
in powerlessness
I arose

“Look deep into my eyes
you’ll see a spark
you’ll see love arise”

I’m not afraid of the darkness
nor am I startled by the light!
