Follow that dark hollow;

That timeless void

Deeper than a dungeon

Where murky waters churn.

Above creepy corpses,

Swims that ancient clock-smith;

That vicious snake 

Disturbs your slumber;

Doubles your fear.

Ghosts. 

Bullies.

Regrets.

Failures. 

Births drown in a pool of deaths

Trade sighs for screams.

Games for guns. 

Tweets for troubles.

Vanities at dawn tarnish at dusk. 

Dollars and diamonds and daily routines

Float in battlefields of truth.

Greed no mansion surrenders.

No shack seeks.

No world survives those bones of yesteryears 

Unless bridges heal.

Leaders hug.

Lovers dance on sunken ships

And sprout their toothy grins.

While hi-fives breach moonlit depths,

Voices from the sea

Beg young and old,

“Find your boat.

Set your sail.”

Paddle fast and fierce. 

Wild and free.

Rage those waves.

Their ghoulish fingers 

Knock you overboard.

Climb back in;

Wet and weary,

Soldier the storm

Before that clock-smith strikes.

One moment

Or another,

Follow that dark hollow.
