Collapse

darkness soaring into darkness
cold holding cold
fragility rejecting strength
smothered into death
rejection equating freedom
a soul collapsed in
fighting to avoid shelter
suffocating in unpercieved security
hoping on sufferance for liberty
falling from the lowest precipice
suppressed and deadened
timeless and loveless
vigor in descent
reviviscent surrender
simple elegance
always ever wanted
empire of constant presence
