untouched

i  
     
we search volcanic ruins for isolation      
along untouched rocky beach      
     
slink between tidal pools      
with mystic mermaids and octopi      
     
we scale across serpent night      
greasy crystal      
tremolite marble      
lawsonite      
until we find ourselves      
lost amongst starfish shrine      
     
holy holy arcane sanctuary      
     
     
ii      
     
this cocoon called humanity      
has unraveled existence      
and the untouchable world      
we thought we knew      
shape shifts into another dimension      
     
with each transformation      
and unraveled thread      
potent lessons are revealed      
     
rebuke spoils of comfort      
possessions are expendable      
cherish moments on hallowed ground      
beneath blue ringed octopus skies      
     
     
iii      
     
go in peace heretic      
eat celtic dirt and drink sacred seas      
cleanse      
heal the way between temples      
     
good and evil coexist infinitely      
this ancient organism      
this merciless equaliser      
encrypted mutant code      
buried in mass graves at the edge of life      
     
ignorance will unleash her tempest      
the might of mother nature      
     
death touch the untouched      
with plasma flame and bludgeon force      
     
holy holy acclimate
