Poems

Defeat

Landscape to succeed
A poisonous dream
No light on our sea
Memories, debris

The fire on my heart
The bright burning dark
The cold kiss of night
The bloody storm tide

Hammer, temper, break
Blasting, forging, hate
Creeping, clutching, doubt
Struggle, strangle, out

All my brothers bleed
All my lovers leave
All a part of me
All apart from me

All lay down the fight
I stand up and die.
