Desert Fox Lost In A Hail Of Love - Poem by Brett Hoffmann

When you stand at the edge of absolute reason
Can you see through your lies
Your skin-thick disguise
A martyr for a precedent of life
Adrift on the darkness of purpose
Focus constantly shifting
A goal within grasp
A love once flourished
The all-consuming fire
Sifting through the ash of intellect
No longer commonplace in the house of sanity
To the mountain of degradation
The world penetrates with a cold gaze
Contents spill in front of
Wrathful Mother Nature
Love grown cold
A blackened rose bud
Do you see now
An impossible request
Return to the embrace of solitude
A skin-thick disguise
