Wyatt Epple Poems
Though I am shrouded and enveloped in light the blackness that formerly overtook me has reared its head into my soul; Alive.
Though I Work
Though I work my body is still weak. As is my mind my soul
A struggle as the sun hath always risen Across the somber vision of my brain I loathe to leave the warmth of my gentle prison For the unseen, hectic battlefield again.
The mental blackness of the deafening blast The plentiful rush of arctic glass Stamping out the senses. Now finally weathered by the coolness
A shining light of hopeful love Has blossomed in my heart As feelings of a darkened past Diminish.
A bloodless revolution takes over the remainder of my being as my soul yearns for a new life. A relentless altercation between me and myself
It's Like That
Life is nothing but soundwaves and hypnotics Knocking you unconscious and telling you what joy is Singin' about what you gotta do to make a living Brainwashin' everyone to never do somethin' different
I tell of the day that my Love, she hath died, This day that no hope I could sing The day that the Lord now hath banished me And the Devil uncurleth his wings.
As fear sinks its claws deep into my skull, I lose my grasp on reality. I lose my grasp on reality and my ability to do what is right. And as those claws grasp ever tightly, my humanity slips away.

Though I am shrouded and enveloped in light
the blackness that formerly overtook me
has reared its head into my soul;
Though it had been slain,
both by blood and by loving compassion,
its resurrection leaves me speechless;
It has become an even greater struggle
for, though before, it was inward,
an angelic third person has blessed my life with her presence.
Therefore, I must use myself and her love to blot out
this newly reincarnated demon;
Alas, the purging must continue.
I must enlighten myself with every ...
