A Zealot’s Rebellion

A scroll unrolled into
piercing hollow eyes;
woeful disturbed mind,
creature of the myths.
Tarnished broken halo
an icy shadowed veil
grasp a crimson heart
Raven’s roost above.
A Book of Mirrors rife
shatters into the sky of
colored faceted jewels
cross dagger of piety.
Parchment laconic afire
while Lime Rickey’s wait
in a high shrilled voice;
enchanted Faeries sing.
Hiding a lavender heart
feted pride lays waste.
Casting sword in a pyre,
zealot’s rebellion reigns.
