The Flesh Empire

The Flesh Empire

A Poem by Howard Blacklove
"

A man is abducted in his dream by unusual beings.

"


Perplexed into nothingness as reality dissolves
Cocooned in silence as the winter rain falls
Towards the ocean my face suddenly cries
As her deathly ripped sail reflects off my eyes

Tall slimy slick and bland
Alien wizards from a cosmic land
disturbingly pale sun deprived fiends
Have abducted my soul and raped my dreams

Shackled unquestionably by my foe
Beside eroded slaves in rhythm they row
A fearful exhalation bleeds from my lip
As I succumb to her womb, the dark God’s ship

Infinite aeons of purple livid sky
Bound for the Hell in my minds eye
Off the edge of this Earth, into infinite space
Into a their dark planet’s frigid embrace

A tear soaked eye reaches a sun-less land
And this wooden beast is tamed by the sand
Slashed and dragged by malevolent clones
To their decaying homes made of flesh and bones

Dark lord my acquiescence sets free to thee
Meals of human remains were force-fed to me
The galactic priest has ended his search
For pieces to complete his flesh made church

Twisted and tangled I remain in the wall
I'm nailed to other slaves, His church must be tall
I suffer, bleed , break and grow quieter
Within relentless torment in The Flesh Empire

I love this. It most definitely creeped me out, and then some. I was unpleasantly surprised at the images you were able to conjure up in my mind.

The fallen one does indeed demand cathedral of flesh. I like how you went from sci-fi to metaphysics to religion... Well played tune.
