Clear endings purge
Beginnings emerge
Buried gems ring bells below
Embodied canvas aglow

Trailing conscious delay
The smell of decay, predator salivates
Must enslave the prey

Foggy shield in the scope starts wielding its blur
Darkness creeping in, a'drape, a figure takes shape
Clarity falls short
Fear found its mort, which had failed to abort

Cryptic it remains, unknown, awaiting impulse
Eating up the breadcrumb trail, of an unexplored tale
White walls have paved - its allure and charm
The steadiness speaks no harm

Prying happy smiles with clean, fresh sterile style
Apathy ahead for miles, and more to compile
In this dry time, darkness will prevail
The crop you tend will surely fail

Over smoldering musk scents, sandalwood ferments
Whistles pitching high initiate tree roots' slide
Hypnotic pulses on animal skins
Present the smudge stick to its grin

Forced in a tight cell
Where thoughts mean to dwell; they swell
Will man cry when his wings are torn off dry?

Pregnant tongues howl
Adolescent eyes growl
Feed with exotic rinds
To birth the silver kind
