Wrestling with the guardian at the threshold


Witnessing my mother
crossing over
to the otherworld
parting the veil
between and betwixt

Ancient shades
meeting me
at the border
hungry spirits
thirsting for blood

A broken temple
I left in pain
an old lover
vengeful ghosts
haunting my dreams

Painful memories
of broken dreams
riding the nightmare
letting loose
the dogs of war

from dusk till dawn
I wrestle with
the guardian of the gate
between land and water
betwixt light and dark

i wrestle my dark self
in the mirror of my soul
till I step forward
through the looking-glass
into a new beginning
