Denialshire [Pre-Relapse]

A. Crowley’s ‘Nightmare Paintings’
slither snake-like
… through my fractured Mind…
as W. Blake’s ‘Jerusalem’
… battle-marches in
with the strange, blinding Dawn.
Lust’s ‘Suede-Texture’ Bristled
… somewhere around Midnight
and now I have to make Excuses.
New ‘Keyholes’ are needed
… familiar Pathways…
away from myself… Lighthouse.
Gutter-Communion
… and the Loss of Faith…
in Waiting, Patience and the Truth!!
