Veiled Infinity

Fading light in bleeding dawn.
Midnight moon holds back the sun.
Simple lives killed by desire,
A hunter on the wind for hire.
Spinning worlds beheld at dusk:
Finders, keepers, thoughts of dust.

A glaring night with falling stars,
Wand'ring thoughts that orbit Mars.
The galaxies beyond my reach
Leave footsteps on the silent beach.
Wreckage laid out on the sand.
Moonbeams burn a fiery brand.

Music of the moving spheres,
Minor chords and gentle tears.
Venus groans as false gods die.
Veiled infinity passes by.
Years of wind, rains of time,
Dragon fire, hawk eyes blind.

Fairy mist and violet red.
The flowers scream, the truth lies dead.
Purple grasses, bruised and broken,
Amber eyes and words not spoken.
Giving, taking, lost and found:
Pirate's blood, unworthy crown.
