The Dark Path




The moon is dark tonight

And the heavens blacker yet

As I shine my solitary light

There’s no room for regret


I commune with demons

Those who came before me

Ancient ones of eternal seasons

Who roam the Galaxy


Overwhelming isolation

Desolation and Despair

The price of illumination

Follow us if you dare!


 Just another soul in flight

Who made a conscious choice

To seek what’s beyond the night

And offer it a voice


I sacrifice my earthly riches

To peer behind the veil

Where there is no forgiveness

For the ignorant, mundane, and frail


Feeling insufferably lonely

Until the warm, potent energy

Of those who came before me

Surges and pulsates through me


My path is narrow and desolate

Few can endure the ordeal

Many more get stuck at the gate

By their fear and their battles of will

  For fear is the Liar

From death there is no escape

So my heart is consumed with fire

In a quest to breach the black drape


During rare and delightful times

I cross paths with a brother

Reunion of old souls sublime

Brief communion with one another


Till we part to continue our solo voyage

We share secrets, wine and love

To be reunited so joyous

Is a gift beyond below and above
