NIGHT LOCK


NIGHTLOCK

NO ONE CAN GO

BACKWARDS

TO START

BEGINNINGS ARE

ALWAYS

FORWARD

BY STARTING TODAY

MAKE A

NEW ENDING

WHILE THE DOOR

IS STILL OPEN

TO DO SO

INTO THE AEVŪM

IS THE CALL

EVER STRONG

INTO THE NORTH GATE

NOTHING NEW

NOTHING SIGNIFICANT

OUR

DISAGREEMENTS

CAN BE SO

SUPERFICIAL

AND TEMPORARY

WE WENT TO FAST

FUELED THIS

RELOADED

EXPLOSIVE

HEART

INTO A FRENZY

LIKE A

HOMECOMING

YET GRAVEN

IN THE LOST DUTY

OF THE VESTED

AUTHORITY

LIKE AN ADVISER’S

FINGER

WARPING JUDGEMENT

THOUGHTS IN

A MOMENT

FOG ROLLS IN

LIKE SOME EERIE

RIFT GATE

PAUSING MY BREATH

FROM THE

VALLEY MARCH

AS MY FEET

TRAMPLE

THROUGH

THE SNOW COVERED

STAIRS

THE NASTY SCAR

ACHES

A ENDLESS REMINDER

TO MY BODY

SO CROSSED

BACK SAFELY

INSIDE

AS THE PRESENCE

DETECTED

WALKED ON BY

OH THAT STATIC

WARNING OF DANGER

CROSSED THE

SENSES

AND YET KNOWING

IT WASN’T

A DANGER TO ME

LET IT GO

TO RIGHT THE WRONGS

FROM

BEASTWOOD

TO THE PREMONITIONS

ALL GHOSTS

OF A DREAM

SPILLED INTO WORDS

LIKE ICE COATING

THE SLIPPERY HILL

AFTER OUR

PLEASANT

AFTERNOON

COMPLETED

AND OVERWHELMED

UPON THE KEEP

NO DOUBT

THE NIGHT LOCK

IN THE ALREADY DUSK

STILL WASN’T

BROKEN

JUST A LITTLE SEALED

AWAY

IN ITS CASTLE

VAULT

WAITING AND WONDERING

IF ALL THE TREASURE

SOUGHT AND FOUND

ARE ALL

BURNED AWAY

WITH NO REGRETS

FOR ITS SHORT

LIVED LIFE

OF A MISUNDERSTOOD

FAR AWAY

DESIRE

INTO THE STONE

CARRIED AWAY

MORE QUESTIONS

OF REALITY

VERSES PURE

FANTASY

SO WHY DID

WHEN THE DOOR

SLAMMED SHUT

MY HEART

SCREAM

SO LOUDLY

AS IF THE SOUND

OF GLASS

WAS SHATTERING

THE BEAT

OF UNKNOWN

EDDAS

NEVER TO BE

WRITTEN

FOR OTHER’S EYES

LOCKED AWAY

BY THE NIGHT

WHERE SILVER CLAWS

HOLD THE KEY

TO UNLOCKING

IT

BUT WILL

NEVER COME

ONLY IN MEMORIES

DOES THAT

KEY

REST ON THOSE

LIPS

OF LONG AGO

AND

NEVER TASTED.
