Visions of Dionysus

November 4, 2019 1 comment

Strange dreams heralded Your coming

Intense, vivid, real

Ivy and mead, yes, but more:

Drums in the distance, heavy and echoing

Spears and swords gleamed

Fangs shone

Something deeper and darker

Slather and blood dripped

Grinning

You stir them up

Drinking

Dancing

Howling

At first I cannot follow your footsteps

I cannot follow your rhythm

I cannot dance with you

I am too afraid

You stir them up with that bestial grin

That snapping of teeth and pawing the earth

That thudding of Your thyrsus

You stir them up with that roar

That shaking of Your body

That unbridled ferocity

You stir them up

You stir them up

You stir them up

How can I do other than follow my soul

As it leads me to dance

As it leads me to release

As it leads me to rage

Your wolfish grin invites

The forest unfolding

Come and be who you are

Io! Io! Io!

O Enualios!

O Holy Wild One!

O Dionysus!

Hahaha!

I grin with salacious smile

You think you know me?

Heeheeheeehahahahahaha!

A scythe smile crawls

Ear to ear

The teeth bare

Hungry as much as amused

I am beyond you and

within you

I am the mad rocking

between bestial

and breaker

I am the logical deconstruction that takes apart the conventions by the foundations

and laughs as everything you knew crumbles to dust

I am the gibbering voice in your ear

Whispering that this world is as mad

And you are always one bad day from its edge

I am the Clown giggling

I am the Madmen muttering

I am the Tortured screaming

I am the Broken begging

I am the Loathed languishing

I am the Nightmare unleashed

I am the Doom all fear of letting come

But I am the only thing that is the Catalyst

that allows everything to truly live
