THE NIGHT IS MY HAVEN, MY SANCTUARY; IT CRADLES MY MUSE, MY VIGOR, MY SANGUINITY.
WHEN THEE AFTER DUSK COMETH LOOKING FOR ME, I REFLECT UPON THEE THAT'D COMETH ONTO ME.

The Fellowship

Monday, April 10, 2006

many a slip between the cup and the lip..

An unsuspecting victim
to my voices of treason;
ignored the dictum,
renounced all reason...

Clouding my awareness,
was darkness in the valley;
strange haunting darkness,
looking to stab me in the alley...

voices of treason - head; dictum - heart; reason - truth; awareness - desire; valley - brain; alley - life.

My favorite bit is "An unsuspecting victim to my voices of treason." I like the way it rolls off the tongue... good rhythm and vivid choice of words.
