“Rain of Brass Petals”

I am the first
a shadow at the end
of the hallway
I spin the carousel
the laughter recedes away
my finger on your lips
I stole something precious
I am the second
alone in a faceless crowd
a human caught
in monochrome dreams
I scream to wake up
my voice drowns deep underground
only the dead can hear me
see me

I am the second
alone in a faceless crowd
a human caught
in monochrome dreams
I scream to wake up
my voice drowns deep underground
only the dead can hear me
see me

I am the third.
a master
a sentinel of awakeness
I hold truth like a torch
shadows flicker before me.
rapid eye follow the
chain of thought
until the silence ends
