Inspired by leaving behind what no longer serves you. The death of past and present. Embracing liminality in life, showing no fear.


The tide is rising,
Pull me under until I let go,
Full surrender,
Sweep me off to the wild unknown

Tranquil & placid, I no longer see,
Stripped of my voice I can no longer breathe,
Solace in anguish,
Deconstructed seams,
Unbound & unleash caliginous dreams

Time is subsiding,
The hourglass is seemingly low,
Sand trickles down in impatient flow

Reptant recession, I sink further down,
Stripped of my ears I no longer hear sound,
Tenebrous complexion
Embody my soul,
Persuading assurance, Relinquish control

The mind is demising,
Stagnant transmission it's starting to slow,
The future foreboding,
Forever alone

Acquiescent abscission,
Descend to its call,
Stripped of my thoughts I've got nothing at all,
Cimmerian curse,
Unpretentious effete,
Renouncing all hope to accept my defeat,
Renouncing all hope to accept my defeat..
