Poem – “Bloom”

Bloom

A sequence whose spawn
Is the millennia of gilded poisons,
Gallium fortunes, dark pleasures

Harvest of the phantom island
Gravitating in the wartorn skyline
Heroic bastion, solely by survival

Poem – “Lavendula”

Lavendula

A mask sleeping in the waves of grass,
She is a storm on the horizon
Whose fragrance is that of the early ocean
Before it had become festering slush
She is an entity born of the rain and dew

Poem – “Unforgotten”

Unforgotten

Unknowable,
Yet we still see what you are
Unforgotten,
But no memory of you is clear
Blossoms of poison coil in your footsteps
At the root lies something
Unmistakable
Yet the most horrible to look upon
Something botantic, something sub-natural
Unknown
And entirely familiar
