PSEUDOLOGIA FANTASTICA



I have eaten UR bread of Affliction…all to Eagerly

And have drunk of the Chalis, the Blood of UR Covenant, in Haste

Rather than Moderation; without any Measure of Impunity

OH, the Tyrant really does have a PreText to his Tyranny

Will there be no end to the Falling of the Angels?

Dare I peer into the Chasm of the Abyss?

It entices ME into it’s Dark Embrace and Continually reminds ME…

OF MY FACE.

About this poem

I’ve listened to and eventually believed the lies of others. That I didn’t deserve to fly, but be condemned to a life in a cage. Sadly enough, I started to lie to myself and became my own obstacle.
