Nuclear Nostalgia


I remember not, all the past
Violent dreams, with misheld asp
Cowering shapes, too vague and disturbed
Plunged and raped, my mind's central nerve A visitation, not held with any honor
a defilement of sanity, bound by another
Past lives, crimes, and deeds undone
Atonement for all, stand only one A thousand lights, rolled into one
A wind so strong, feeling for none
A flicker of time, what is done is done
Humanity abolished, with my touch of a button

Of this worlds theatre in which we stay,
My love like the spectator ydly sits
Beholding me that all the pageants play,
Disguysing diversly my troubled wits.
