You police the flow of energy,

Produced and projected by your vessel

Of the many channels

Linked to major functions,

You ignore betterment, Instead

Falling in love with the camera

The stage, a shame,

For if the actor in you

Was truly who you are;

The world would indeed be

A safer place.

In the open fields of happiness

Despair, misery, distress

… Weeds, on an otherwise perfect plain

Surface regardless, of no watering can

Reasons to be sad never cease

The dark side is self sufficient

I resist the persistent consensus

As I love in place of hate 

Cultivating my better self to stream

A steady supply to the side

I believe needs it most.

Dangerous area to tread in

A bite from the light, a sip from the dark

An unquenchable appetite 

For forbidden cuisine, among other things

A palate subjugated by rights and wrongs

The devilish and the angelic

Which is which really, hard to tell apart

When you pick from the dinner table

With a blindfold.

Oh how satisfying it will be,

Seeing your face turn purple

A royal mash-up of red and blue,

Frustration, holding your breath,

Baseless anticipation;

Waiting for your curse to work

Not a big fan of giving spoilers

But I can offer you this much as a clue

A Re-breather is in order.

Be satisfied when you, by chance,

Get a glimpse of where I reside

Shield you eyes, from my glare,

For it will, without a doubt,

Leave you blind

Eternally i’ll burn and grind

Materializing the dark intentions

Of anything and anyone that

Enters my gaze

Through that dark form.
