Open Eyes, Burning Soul
In the darkest night, I found myself amongst the cruelty of a life unfurled
With demon spittle and master illusion, it crept around me with confusion
Transfixed by the whispering ghoul, the sun beckoned me to the burning truth.
A thousand lifetimes and a thousand more could never prepare my soul for its own revelation
Burned by my undoing and pain, I caressed the truths inside me begging
I looked in the mirror for who was lost to time and a heart of stone sewn together
Only the shadowed blade could pierce my armor and cause the rising of the cleansing fires
Alone with every thought, every waking hour, every sleepless second
I forced myself to face the creation of my own flawed perception
In the days that followed, it destroyed my defenses and egoic construction
Inside each wound, I rediscovered my heart and began to destroy the abyss
The abyss that I created.
