Exposing the raw
Weather peeling back the years
Deep lines on her face

Wanderlust

6ECEE733-62DB-41FC-BE25-9878374D7F43

My spirit bound to earth
Body a straight jacket
That gets tighter with age
My youth flew with the ether
Those days long past
So I must keep moving
To fill my wanderlust
Or succumb to the gravity
That pulls my leaden limbs

Mighty Succession

moves
reform

There is a beauty
In wreck and ruin
Where survival
Is the leading lady
Time worn
But still standing
The scars of violence
Begin to heal
Her pyroclastic flow
Long since dried
But deep down inside
Her core still burns
