Leaden Skies- Olde Punk/RamJet Poetry

Come

Come and lead

Me on

Past the sallow

With leaden eyes,

Leaden cheeks

And leaden mouths

Heaving leaden words

At our backs beneath

Leaden skies

Come, come and find me

Down in the gutter

With the elixir still heavy

On my ragged breath

Call me to the gathering

With your voice like

Tambourines, drowning

Out the drawing of midnight

And the ringing of bells, pulling

Me towards the grey spaces

Where the Ankou waits

My golem is coming closer

Dead eyes seeking to take mine

Come, come and guide me

To the places where your sun

Blinds the darkness I wear

My funeral shroud already in place

I clutch it selfishly, growling curses

I will resist you, as you know I must

For I dwell in the houses of sorrow

And she is a lustful creature, despair.

Still I pray for you when lucidity

Finds me.

To come

Come and lead me

Far away from here.

  1. Quite enjoyed the way this fed my subconscious the ingredients for some word alchemy later. An enjoyable read for the conscious too! Dig it. Thank you.

      1. haha I know right?
        While we were in Colorado, northern Colorado formed a team. The Avs were getting elite and too expensive for a lot of people, so I was loyal to the Northern Colorado Eagles. 😁Otherwise I flipped a little. My hubby’s brother in law is a huge Penguins fan.
