Ephemera of Abeyance – A Collaboration By 1Wise-Woman and A.G. Diedericks

age of abeyence

Buried beneath the valley

Of the shadow of death

Abandoned

In day-glow delirium

Stifled blessed breath

Veins spill vermilion

 

Resuscitated by the lips of Lilith

I ride shotgun

with this estranged soul

that forges my signature

Stigmatized traffic

Oh, irascible ones..

Must you vivisect me so bluntly?

 

My name in blood as

Succor for unsung sins

Yet you persistently press

Cold blade of consternation

To repentant chest

Left to exist in

Muddied ditch of condemnation

 

Idling ethereal essence

Clinging to determinations edge

Whispering wind torn prayers

Last lost breath issues

A final plea for clemency

Drifting into depths

Of umbral numbness

 

I wake up mourning

in claustrophobic skin

A ray of light

years away from consciousness

Sentenced to systemic nerves

I excavate, inebriated

for the ephemera of abeyance

To Wolves- Austin M. Ely

Drawn from the darkness

Only to be thrown To Wolves

In an unforgiving light

As I am ripped to pieces

I come back together

In the blink of an eye

I…

Take a step forward

And I die…

In a pit of pain

A pitiful way to go

When I’m toe to toe

Eye to eye

With the beast

Consider Hammurabi’s Code

An eye for an eye

At least have the decency to numb me first

As a matter of fact

Take both of my eyes

For I have seen too much

In such little time

A poet based out of the city of Wilkes Barre, Northeast Pennsylvania. At the age of 13 he began writing poetry and short stories in a foster home in order to express what he couldn’t. Through the years, now at the age of 21, he has always sought to personally develop his word play as well as inspire those who read his work to perceive themselves through and to the world. He has dubbed himself a “modernai literary” which is a title prescribed by his generation in order to distinguish himself and his writing.

 

His blog, which can be seen at ameofficialblog.com houses much of his works for any and everyone to read.
