Pyres of Apathy

The timeless predator now lacks for teeth
for I long to embrace its dark caress
fearing not the finality of its kiss
nor the fleeting of my final breath.

Its dominion is now betrayed
for I strip it of its authority
by surrendering to the struggle
and smiling at the coming death.

[Hata Bildir]
