Passage Through (March 2018)


“The Black Lord of the Witches, the Dark God of the two Horns, is the archetypal initiator-psychopomp who separates the subtle essence of the soul from the coarse material image of the body and who grants the extasis of night-transvection in the ‘living death’ of magical trance. When darkness covers the world and all are asleep in their beds, he is the dark-robed Master who summons forth the Wise to go out of themselves, riding on the turbulent storms and tempests over brake and thicket, ditch and dale to the realms beyond. As the Great Sorcerer and Lord of the Dead, the Horned One enables such translations into the spirit and opens the Devil’s Road to the High Sabbat.”
–Nigel Jackson

Bring me to the edge and through
Devour my organs and
crush my bones
leaving my old ruined flesh behind
rip the shards of my being and memory
and guide my passage into the darkness
I hear nought but your dark wings as
I gain clarity with each step
I return to emptiness through your guidance
continuing as existence fades away.

Seeing My Face As Shadows (February – March 2018)


This is the not-you
at your kernal
the being you will into existence
by making your shadow manifest
the discarded parts of yourself
that unlock the potential
that once you feared
By embracing it you become whole hole
holy and profane
you reach out to us
to find the key to negation
only by shaking the snowglobe of your existence
and becoming the hidden
can you understand.
Feel the wrath at your core
and set it free

Healing Quest (December 2017)


With shield and sword
I enter into unknown places
to heal myself from this malaise
Guides I have
who appear at need
definitely not at will.
These places are soft and illusory
yet the dangers are real
Will I lose myself or find
that which will fix
the broken spaces in heart and body?
