It's been a while. My muse as returned. Maybe.

Lullaby

Shards of light pierce my skull
Drifting on a Thought led lull
Milky eyes are pinned to ground
Searching for the peace Iíve found

Fingers tied behind my back
Muscles weep, growing slack
Ribs are cracking beneath my skin
Stretched across a tear soaked chin

Limbs are leaden and fall with grace
And salty fragments melt my face
Blood is swelling, bursting through
Rippling veins and scarlet dew

Knotted spine snaps in the breeze
Nerve ends screaming, fingers freeze
Fists are falling onto each thrust
Of broken heart on broken bust

And Universe pauses with a sigh
Bloodstained fingers stroke my thigh
Soothing, seething, seeking me
As Soul is laughing, Thoughts just flee

Shards of light pierce my skull
Drifting on a Thought led lull
Splintered smile creeps up from deep
As shattered head lies down to sleep.
