Undertaken.

Undertaken.

The world feels so… much darker… so unjust…so flawed…
Everything feels very wrong; so unwarranted…so gone.
My mind grows again cynical…so angry…so unkind…
This place is robbed blind; barebones…the wrong time.
Disbandment…spread of wings…untie the strings – detach…
All that was intact; the neat and clean closeness…unpacked.

Out of everyone…answer me…the question…that burns…
Singes with pain and concern; so undeserving…of such fate, in turn.
I cannot lie…I curse…the stars…in the night sky…
I want to climb high; so far up there…to spit in God’s eye.
Undertaken…undoing…the strings tied…why?
There is no way to rectify; so empty…hard to recognize.

The laughter…lightness…adrift…towards the moon…
It’s all so unbelievable; so sudden…too soon.
The love is long…anchored…to the core…strong and steady.
My heart feels again heavy; so saddened…so unready.
Unaccepting…desperate plea…not possible…fucking tragedy…
The High Beast, My Friend Marcus, left his love and howls echoing.

  1. 21st December, The shortest day,
    Which is sort of a bummer for the sad,
    Yet it lifts up our hearts as from today it gets better,
    The days get longer, the nights get shorter,
    Less time to dwell on the past,
    More time to look forward to the sun.

    This is a powerful tribute to our friend. Do you hear that? Be still and listen. That whistle through the trees? Sounds a lot like a wolf howling NO? Yes, I think it does. Peaceful rest my wolf brother. Peaceful rest…

  4. Powerful and beautifully written. We should all be so blessed to have such words written about as. Sending love and light your way.

  5. Love. Peace. Strength. Calm. … X

    I look forward to the day’s end, A. I always start anticipating the new year, telling myself it will be a time of new beginnings. It doesn’t always turn out that way, but like some people won’t let go their belief in Santa, I won’t let go my belief in healing and new beginnings. Love you, A. ♥
