Blue, Gagged, and Beaten (Parts 1 and 2)

Blue, Gagged, and Beaten (Parts 1 and 2)

A Poem by Roger Morrison
"

Corpse of light where darkness falls stuffed into the basement walls

"

Blue, Gagged, and Beaten

 

 

Part 1:

 

The earth has gone insane

Death is the dust that eats your brain

 

Madness is dust from which you came

Dance of the pawns in a blood-bath game

 

We are blue, gagged, and beaten

See what hungry skies have eaten

 

Eyes on the other side have seen

Us bleeding blue upon the screen

 

Corpse of light where darkness falls

Stuffed into the basement walls

 

We are locusts eating life

Tears of red swim down a knife

 

Shred your soul through razor heart

Orgasm as you’re torn apart

 

Dancing in the grinder’s blade

We find love, ripped and flayed

 

Blood leaks from an unborn kiss

Dive into electric abyss

 

Surgery by the serpent King

Sown together by puppet strings

 

Crucified in hero dreams

Waking to an endless scream

 


Part 2:

 

Lullaby in the evil forest

Die in the arms of branches

Blue as the sex-blood blackouts

Wake up where the Devil dances

 

Song of sunshine in winter’s womb

Every song must end

Gagged in the trunk of dead-end desperation

He steers off of the snowy bend

 

Into the icy river’s veins

The current takes you like lust

Beaten, you wash up ashore at a city

In its shimmering madness, it crumbled to dust

Love the images you evoke with the sinful description of desire despair and lustful defeat, metaphors shimmer in the lake of your words creating a meaningful weight to bring down the gems of lullaby rhymes, violent and ethereal your emotions sacrifice everything tearing apart all in their path to reach the climax of their actions. It flows over the rocks of death and ash to find the epitome of release.
