The Dark Path

moon

The moon is dark tonight

And the heavens blacker yet

As I walk this solitary path

No space or time for regret

 ~~~

I commune with demons

And those who came before me

The ancient ones with timeless wisdom

All roam the Galaxy

 ~~~

Overcome by isolation

Desolation and Despair

This is the price of illumination

Follow me if you dare!

  ~~~

I am merely a lone traveler in flight

Who made a conscious choice

To seek that which is beyond the night

And offer it a voice

 ~~~

We travelers sacrifice our earthly selves

To peer behind the veil

Where there is no forgiveness

For the unwitting, mundane, and frail

 ~~~

At times it’s insufferably lonely

But then the warm, potent energy

Of those who came before me

Surges and pulsates through me

  ~~~

It thrusts me forward with electrical spin

Passionate, obsessive and possessed

The mundane can’t begin to comprehend

Who I am and that which I profess

 ~~~

My path is narrow and desolate

Very few can endure the ordeal

And many more are stuck at the gate

By their fear and their battles of will

  ~~~

They have yet to discover Fear is the Liar

From death there is no escape

Let our hearts be consumed with fire

In our quest to breach the black drape

  ~~~

During rare and delightful times

We may recognize a brother

A reunion of old souls in brief, sublime

Communion with one another

  ~~~

Till we part to continue our solo voyage

We share our secrets, wine and love

To be reunited so joyous

Is a gift beyond below and above
