The Day I Disappeared

I decided to disappear
into the sea beneath all thought
to find forgotten silence
and siren songs of gold
beneath the waves and storm
the day I disappeared

I decided to rage war
against the sea beneath my feet
to fight the pull of quicksand
and pitch black pool of night
beneath my feet, against the sea
the day I raged war

I decided to start fires
in the hearts of hollowed books
as I watched their spines breaking
into diamond shards that split tar skin
and turn gazes to shrapnel
bursting through bright ceiling skies
the day I forgot to watch my fire
