this twisting tempest spares no souls as rib cages crack and lungs explode

muscle fibers intermingle with remnants of bone

as tendons and flesh transform into substances unknown

a dizzying maelstrom of aural delusion

leaves the mind lost in destructive seclusion

yet still the heart beats freely negligent of pain

emanating a white radiance, stabilizing and sane

and clouds of black become spirals of grey

these visions of eternal light blocked out by the day

the moon sets in the west floating slowly away

and these bright thoughts return with the sun's first beaming rays

and rib cages reform, muscles once more cover the bones

and seas remain calm, hiding their underwater surprises

we are once more reminded, even in a reign of darkness, the sun also rises.
