INTO THE LIGHT

LIGHT

The light shines on chaos
His path chartered by the stars
Absorbs without seeing,
thinks without feeling
blazened by disdain.

BEAUTY

he toils terrain
pursues Leonardo’s decree
looking through youth
reveals his Artists guise

LUST

Strokes in ink adorn feline form seduces mystery enchants

LOVE

He masquerades them all
eyeglasses to escape
Goldfingers to shine
Silk to seduce

POWER

A maniacal force
wields darkness,
Explosion, denial, loyalty,
This fantasy, scandal
history shall not repeat
he looks
Into the light.
