A Seeker’s Plea

Where are you?
Is it that I cannot hear you?
Or is it that I choose not to?
This image I offer,
This persona I covet,
I fear that you will render all I hold precious
To dust.
How foolish this sounds.
How fragile.
How human.
“Grant me initiation….but on my terms please.”
“Birth me for a second time,
Yet allow me to keep the comforts of this existence.”

Am I incubated in the status quo?
Yours is a flaming sword.
It baptizes indiscriminately.
Many perish.
Few rise,
In a world enveloped with ashes,
The Phoenix born
From the wounds of the past.
Grant me courage, cloak me with peace,
To walk in Love,
Than to march in Fear.
Such a time shall dawn where I discover,
I am already Headless.

Sun-bleached Bones

Lucifer, myself to my Self
I pray.
Peel back my skin, flesh pulled aside,
Bleach these bones,
to a Hallowed white,
The Fair One I am,
We are One, and the same.
Hel hold me, as the Seer sings
to my Strength,
as the Winds steal the last vestiges of comfort and familiarity.
As Death embraces this Hallowed and Fated corpse,
you shall know me as an Other,
as Ol’ Grim, the Dark One,
as the Devil who plays a merry tune;
Lose yourself and dance with me,
amongst your Shadows unacknowledged.
We are not going anywhere…
