wayfarer come home

i am ravenborn
a wayfarer
come home
to the queens'
vicious embrace
her tearing into
my heart darkened
w/blood throbbing
in her fist
offered feast
to the blackwings
turning skies
night

summoned i 
return underworld
to be taken inside
her, embraced &
rejoined
a blood kiss
black against my
cheek

encampment

my life
no longer mine
i fade drift through
bright colours flutter
a window to your soul
barefoot tambourine
and wagon wheel

leaves in you hair
sun glow laughter
under flickering
tree shade

seeking coin kiss
myrrh treasure
in grey streak hair
drinking in
the world the world
