Merciless Burden

You loom over me,
Broken wings trailing
Ash and scree
Your grim calling card

You think nothing
Is the answer
Destruction without
And within your core

Fool that I am,
Your image is glamorized
But fortunately I
Never trusted allure

Stumbling through rubble
I twist haltingly,
Tattered tears dusting
Empty door frames,

I feed your gaping maw
With the rawness
Of my defeat
Bloody and torn

I have stopped
Longing for the white
Fiery sword of hope
Best not illuminate these horrors

I mistook you once, lamented
Twice, misplaced the path
Towards the sweet
Relief of oblivion

No rest in suspense
No advance in attack
The seventh circle
Has no dawn
