I have given my eyes to the world

For it to do with them what it wills

To show me the world beyond the lies



My eyes reveal your secrets; I see the madness in your eyes

I will be your Dante; I will be your martyr before my eyes get cut out

My soul is like the trunk; of the tree that never dies



I shall be the Mortician God

I will embalm all your sorrows

My hands will anoint your skin

With soothing oils and ashen balms

I dedicate my crusade of peace

To your body besieged, to your tortured soul



I journey for knowledge and I travel for peace

I pay my toll with suffering, I pay it with blood

It is the tax of life



With enlightenment I will help you rise, to the stars in the sky

I will illuminate your soul with wonders unsung

I will temper your mind with agony felt

Educate me in turn with your own

Let us travel together in our dreams

We can be the temple, let us go beyond the lies





Let us go ever yonder

And peer into souls

We are the unquiet souls who charge

Through the veils of the unknown

We travel beyond mortal ken

Let us change darkness to delight

Illuminate everything

We are here to learn

We are born from mortal birth

We are not born just to die
The muses kept beating my skull with their tiny fists. I am the Heretic Saint they told me.

Another well done. I really like the message/subject matter. Wish I was as prolific as you are right now... haha Haven't finished anything in a good while... maybe today.

You should try. I lost my pendrive for awhile, mourned it and then it came back to me with a truckload of random verses, single paragraphs and unfinished stuff. Ive been digging into it with gusto.

'Nother good one.

And never believe what the muses say. Especially in regards to free ice cream.

Hard to say. If you're lucky, a few months. If not, you should be hearing from them again right about... now.
