Debasing the Eclipse

Looking far into the fields of unborn to blooming flowers
Some mutated sun forces its way into the morning.

With deep, black eyes it melts over harmonious singing wind.
The jaws and teeth pull at and eat the eroding leaves.

Life as dry as dust that cause all to heave.
Heave away the Green Earth.
The Blue Earth.
The known Earth.
Not the Yellow Earth.
The Red Earth.
The burning Earth.
The shifting core.
The Wooden Earth.
Held together by the loose screws.

The drunk laughter
Mumbling behind dark clouds.

Who could be laughing?

What a bitter sound
Ready to spit out more life
Holding death it its claws
Riding in our spinning wheel.
To tell us we must hide.

Evil lingering and peeking through.

It'll find us.

I swear its true.

Beware of nature
Beware of life
Beware of everyone
Beware of the tides
Beware of the story
Beware, don't talk
You will be captured.
Each word will be captured.
And twisted all around.
Love is in the twisting.
Debasing the eclipse.
Swallow the bulbous sun.
Nothing is unique anymore.

Not even Eden.
