Hold Fast

Soft focus
Just to find you
In the whole cloth
Of the twilight.
The love worn
Velvet of the night
Haunted by the
Hollow ghosts
Of starlight
A city full of sleepless
Thieves obstruct.
I have stolen
Piece by piece the
Galaxies long dead
Hung in discordant
Chords across
An infinite melody.
Built within this
Wretched flesh,
The heart buried
Beneath,
Within the sick synapse
Of a sinful mind,
The longing of
Impossible things
And an indelible
Dread.
The terror hung
Around my neck,
A red rope where the
Hell collects
Replete with
Remembrance.
If Hope is a stone,
I will
Hold fast
Hold fast
While I sink.
