Pyro Sanguinas

Sometimes it seems that everything I’ve ever cared about has been taken from my sight.
And although, I admit, it’s been all my fault on more than one occasion I still can’t help flying through the dark night of despair with the raking claws of self doubt ripping at my fragile, velvet wings as I search for a light to warm my cold body against.

As I search the wind moans with the cold ashen memories of the beautiful flames I had seen, the flames that bring no warmth to me now but instead bring the coldness closer around my heart.
Sometimes I know so little of hope that I begin to fade into the inky blackness, the dusky jewels of my wings disappearing into the night as if I never existed, and many times I’ve almost given up searching for the endless flame, the pyro sanguinas, the flame of blood.

But the geas cannot be denied, the search must continue for the one who will melt the hard veins of silver blood in my frozen body, the one who will set my tattered wings aflame.

Drink deep of my silver, my angel of desire, and I shall taste your gold.

Author’s Postmortem: my own analysis of my work, some folks prefer not to know, so spoilers ahead.

Another depression inspired poem, but one with a slightly manic-love cast to it. The image of a tattered moth almost disappearing into the darkness is very powerful to me, especially coupled with the searching for the only thing that can warm it and kill it at the same time. Love can be all consuming in a bad way too, and this helps show the single mindedness of such a relationship. Not too much more for me to analyze on this one, for all the words it’s pretty damn simple. I will say I’m very happy at how this one doesn’t rhyme at all, as AR knows that’s one of my pet-dislikes about most poetry, forced rhyme schemes.
