Across The Anarchist Sky



Whispers come from within

the darkened shadows

replete with the framework of misery

from a hangman's gallows.

A full moon approaches fast

across an anarchist sky,

With brave men giving,

And only God willing,

No more will face,

 This silent disgrace 

of dying.

For it is said,

Of both the living and dead,

That old journeys must end,

for new ones to begin.

So, go I,

Across this anarchist sky

Chasing the rising moon

From hill,

To river,

To darkest sea,

Resting in peace


Upon the shore

Of my complacency.

For I…I…I…

Cannot halt the hangman's rope,

Nor can I still the slide of mankind,

Down life's evil and slippery slope.

For I have toiled a lifetime of worry,

Only to realize,

That all fades to black,

That all will die,

And that all

Will fall

Into times eternal, crack.

So, go I

into the anarchist sky.

Apocalyptical and foreboding composition , Allen...
Its time to rid the world completely of the dark threat of terrorism..

Only to realize,
That all fades to black

Allen, this is an absolutely soul-ripping, teeth-clenching, heart-stopping powerful write! Your natural ability to harness the written word and guide your admirers, which I am privileged to be one, is a shining testament to your overall poetic genius. I have always left your remarkable Den a changed individual. For that I am extremely grateful to you my gifted friend. Thank you for sharing your timeless work. Take care and be well.

Some do so sooner than others, Al, but say it ain't so, you better not be doing any sliding into any external or internal cracks any time soon...oh shit that was supposed to be eternal, oh well...sounded pretty good anyway...Peace Sir Allen, Ed & Rufuz

Dear Allen,

So full of desperation, a very sombre write, although you pen these so well. There is always so much hope and so much to look forward to. Never just look at the gloom and doom, find the beauty within these factors. Well penned Allen.

warm hugs
