Turn Your Back Ch. 1“How long has she left?” he asked, trying to swallow the bile rising in his throat. He knew by the wise mandrill’s silence, that the answer was one he did not wish to hear. Inhaling shakily, Mohatu asked what would become of the cub. Hesitant, his friend replied “assuming it survives, and if it does it will be extremely weak, Zuri is due to give birth in the coming weeks, as you know. She has agreed to nurse the cub and act as substitute mother.” Zuri was Udo’s younger sister, who had fallen for a rogue who had absconded before he knew of her pregnancy.

Ageless SecretSecrets aligned in crystalAgeless Secret by Ancient-Hoofbeats
A whisper, a word, stories in ancient tongue
Shimmering in the dead of night
Little lanterns dance in sweet harmony
Destinies collide in age, against Time Itself
Deny not the flutter of thy heart
For truth, and in truth, melodies sing the Sirens True...

Beyond the clutches of beastly fouls
Sketched by the fingers of ancient eras past
All and in all written the world of a noble race
Upon crumbling stone
"Let thy love rule in kingdom and soul
That all the lands may know thee in whole."
Sworn by sword
For the Kingdom so true
A promised lordship, the Way, the beginning and the End
Not of creation but for creatures young and old
Of the wise, a man bold in blood
This be he who stands strong even in the roots of sand
Excalibur in Hand.
BlazeI remember the bare knuckled graspBlaze by jesus-in-a-bin
Those cold fingers like steel fish
They slash my heart away
It dances out of sight.
I cannot bleach away my sins
Trapped behind my aching eyes
The smooth slide of footsteps by the stair
My body saved your marks
like worms burned into my skin.
I long for the sensuous swipes you gifted me with before.
Barriers are raised
Time for the clutch of silence.
Down I dig.
It's white around the edges
Distant noise, I mute it easily.
I meet a heavy embrace of blank disregard
A magnitude you cannot fathom
Seduced by the night
Now, a flicker in the corner of the room
and I crumble away,
A graceful, rubbled flash.
