A Disfigured Persona with Vivid Streams

by Andrea Laws

a certain age once lived before
where ignorance fuels
what was left behind

travelling ridden paths
where love is forbidden

feeding into silences to
ensure the sun’s cause of being

do you sense my repression?

oh, trumpet watchman,
sound waves of truth!

drown paranoia’s weakness into
eternal’s crescendo

dry scarred souls
rotate ripples of blood

through dark crevices’ past
everything will be capability inherited

nothing is lost or forgotten!
