The Hanged Man

The Hanged Man came to my window
To whisper of fate.
There is joy in this
He told me.
Joy in destiny or doom;
Welcome the signatory
Of death.
Hallowed by the Earth we walk upon,
For each step is accounted for.
The wind which passes through
Our bodies like words
In an auditorium;
The droplets of rain which absorb
Into us and depart vaporously.
His voice is anonymous and intimate.
He knows my name and my family.
He doesn’t care about my feelings.
He cares only about the rope around
My neck.
Or the snake about my ankles.

Unimaginable joys and
Everlasting peace
Be upon those who
Can recognize their own
Reflection.
The pain of stigmata upon those
Who live in confusion and are
Burdened with dogma.
He speaks with two tongues
Through two mouths,
Yet from darkness it is
Difficult to discern.
I will decide
Myself.

Re: The Hanged Man

Damn it man. So damn good. Occult, slithery, phantasmic, the tip of an iceberg, a man that tells you to enjoy suffocation, blathering in darkness.

This hurts and crushes. This is a scene in my head. A man that has visited me. This is a million metaphors and they are all real and true. . .and staring at us.

Building momentum man, keep it up.

Not sure why this stabs me so. I really like it . It's a dance with destiny and death; hope and gratitude.
