Breathe,

 

~Jason Woods

 

There are moments; where the clock stops ticking, where all things come clear, when the plot does thicken;

 

When your eyes become clear, as your body does weaken, your soul impure, your reflection tarnished and stricken;

 

The seconds to pass, as the shadows unveil, their true form, the smell of death’s entrails;

 

The vision of truth, as it becomes clear, to face oneself in the Lord’s pure mirror;

 

“To whom do you serve?” the query never fails, “Who calls your soul, what decisions lift veils”;

 

Sweat from my brow, my heart does batter, like a drum of natives, calling to battle;

 

My senses alive, I can feel their approach, my fingers do caress, my blade taking note;

 

My muscles do tense, as I sense the path, to test my truth, to let go of the past;

 

Their talons do scrape, their sounds draw closer; the scraping of stone, audible like thunder;

 

This moment of me, wherein I find myself, where I do see the truth withheld;

 

Control of the moment, gone in the glance, the scene melting, blood coursing in trance;

 

There could I see my nemesis falter, his shoulders gave, as my blade took made its saunter;

Not even an attempt to deflect, did he make; as the silver found home, in it’s delicious hate;

 

Pain did strike me, as I crumbled in turn; the reflection tells truth of mine enemy’s yearn;

 

As the light passed, and the darkness did fall, my vision giving, as I made my last call;

 

“Forgive me now, I do beg of thee”, the answer was swift, thousands sang harmony;

 

“All is that is, designed to be, give into the truth; own what you see.”
