Ascend To Damnation - Poem by Danny Draper

Ascend to damnation
Day or night
Power of mind control
Black or white,
Easily filled
the empty vessel
Garbage in a ravine,
Brim capped with malleable clay
Rubbish top to bottom
trash all in between.
Cultivate a single thought
So it may walk
and live in mitosis
benign alone and free
vulnerable autotroph
scar clad dry and weeping
glisten trail over myriad faces
possibilities loud and bleating
bind me never let me go to
that restful sleeping darkness,
nor into that migraine blinding light that
fear and awe reward us.
Let us grow in dimensions vast
And recognise no plan
In osmosis grow amorphous
Dismiss this mortal scam
Glare and shadow conspiracy
Grow as and where one can
White cells devour fear and hatred
Knowledge feeds on ignorance
Scepticism and doubt
Nourishes each seed
Parasite on a mistletoe
In check each grows at speed,
Is that rain from the sky
Or does the Universe internally bleed?

    I liked the beginning concept and how you developed
    and rode the thought of the poem to its stellar conclusion.
    Good write.
