Voices On Air

sky streaked red
with opalescent fire
an opaque statement
projecting paths ahead

night and day merged in one
blooming tears glisten
faces drawn in dread
braced for the unexpected

lonely voices
lost in thought
lost from the world

sinking perception
drowning pools of rust
suffocating reason
from the helpless

blood seeping through
cracks in reality
dripping on the flames
hissing as it burns

echoing voices
building in chorus
finding purchase
finding audience

naked flesh
writhing on the altar
prophesying lucid truths
in foreign tongues

primal voices
manic crescendo
desperate fire
crimson death
