A Nightmare

Always a dark fire
Always a man watching
Never a canvas so heavy with color
Over-painted, blurred
And dreamed of

In ties far beyond loose ends
Those of fake smiles
Fake friends
And Gods unlikely
Dark silhouettes

I'll leave no deity behind
In my curses, grim thoughts
And never a word warm, kind
Will come true from me

For I am to disregard
A dark fire
A man watching
Layer the canvas in black
And dream of truth

Riddled with filth
Burdened with dreams
Contempt with justice
Stuck with themes
Of days left far behind
A pigmy, so easily forgotten

This pilgrim is war
In a dark fire
With a man watching
And he knows your intentions
He knows

Incinerate the canvas
Leave the deities behind

God will understand

poet John Clare

I love to see the old heath's withered brake
Mingle its crimpled leaves with furze and ling,
While the old heron from the lonely lake
Starts slow and flaps its melancholy wing,
