Faust

all is black
all is bleak
no succor to be found
silence answers my calls

shadows paint my walls
thoughts trailed by hounds
prey are the meek
minds full of crack

deception
misdirection
card tricks and bombs

confusion
delusion
nonsense and qualms

all is won
all is lost
pay the reaper’s
closing costs

I as Faust
seeking deeper
married loss
and spurned the son
