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
Within the sick synapse
Of a sinful mind,
The longing of
Impossible things
And an indelible
The terror hung
Around my neck,
A red rope where the
Hell collects
Replete with
If Hope is a stone,
I will
Hold fast
Hold fast
While I sink.
