The harder I fight,
  the stronger they wield

The sharper their knives,
  the thicker my shield

The louder their shouts,
  the deeper my scream

Reality theirs,
 —all time but a dream

The moment they chose,
  my spirit was gone

Their words uninvited,
  dead verse to a song

That plays a reunion,
  a reckoning of sorts

Whose lyrics birth silent
 —as curses abort

(Villanova Pennsylvania: August, 2017)
