Beholden

the rabid heat
betrays me still

uttering unspent tears

bitterly
through painted veils
that sting with heaven’s wrath

breaching
basin vast

afore voluminous

of vested vice

leeching life
and thought beseeching

parched

the precious cistern perched

beyond hope’s reach

at pain’s approach
precipitous

through parallels
scripting perception

truth residing relative

for even that which is

also is not

designed
beholden to it

beings
none the wiser

none the better

scattering to spread the particles

that speak of our demise
