Husk of a Man

from Myopic by MYOPIC



A hawk in flight with prey
While limbs and bodies lay
I let the fire slip away
The ember's lost as I am

I try to plot the course
Nothing comes, direction seems so hard to find
In the night, the spirit
Comes to me to chase the light that slips away

Into this world
Flashing white

Cry out
Into the night
No one hears you

Stone eyes look in ruin
An old man grips his son

The fading heat from yesterday
Whose lives were used to pay
The final path to take, the ride across the lake
Last embrace of earthly life

Hollow eyes and pale flesh
The smell of death consumes me
Enter the chasm once more
Trapped to never leave again

Tumultuous rain discharges from above me
Leaves my body swollen and bruised

I’ve awoken to feed and feast again
On the rubble of tattered visions you’ve left behind

Yet you strive
And yet you strive
To find meaning

Suffering pale
Husk of a man
Fight against your death
