Promethean

prometheus-eagle-eating-liver

I’m cold as rain

Pain is my home

this sound of Armageddon

grey tremors abound

feeling for some meaning

as we watch eclipse

Pain is my home

sun is in the sky

there is a roof over my head

and a tomb in which I lie

It drips icicles of fire into my veins

and I lay upon a pyre

breathe in my smoking remains

Pain is my home

hither it comes, tearing me down

I feel it again

recourse in your gaze

we acquiesce to fear and what’s to be

highlands awash with our regrets

weather comes crashing in

pain is a solitary creature

From gift of Prometheus

I have felt no warmth, only flame

As I turn away from the sound

of my name, I take a longer way down

Choke on solace of my home, this place of pain

wait for storms

to wash tragedy away

know that my heartbreak sleeps

in cold light of day
