Curse This Castle
Black Dove
Shifting Sands
Against The Grain
All This Time


All this time, along the purple desert, I’ve been against the grain and grit I’m treading. The stars and the maps they were making should have warned me against the direction I was taking. I’m heading through a desert belonging to a land of desolate desires. It’s a lonely place.

Water is so far from plenty my flask is stripping itself of its lining, and soon the weight of this heavy dark will make it feel like I’m carrying a castle. I raise it to my face and curse it.

Horrifying soundless sands span the foreseeable future. My skeleton will surely crumble into them... But I must keep it moving, got to keep it moving on.

Before the dawn, I will need to have passed through the purple canyons and the venom blue trees or so help me oh great ones I’ll be engulfed in the shifting land where time lays in wait for the dead.

All this time I’ve cried inside, but don’t feel for me for this was my decision. To change my life for the good was so bad. I want to go to a place that knew not my name, and I wanted to dry out in the rain. The pain drove me, it is true, but going from blue to black is no plan for any soul-searcher.

I curse this mind and the matter that encases it! Everyone who knew me told me to stay in the warmth and shelter of the city, but I decided to cross this desert. Deep within me, somewhere out of reach from raking flesh digging fingers, something... something drove me here. How much further must I go, to find what it is I am currently blind to?

When I glance in the mirror, what I see is a husk, all hope has been pulled into the magnetic rocks. Just a lost life-form that does not understand the place my life-force is driving me to. Whatever energy I had, and all the anger feeding it, gone but not forgotten.

My life has melted over the course of the night but look! I’ve made it, and with the silver sun that begins its piercing of the horizon, a beacon... it begins to warm my skin, soaking me through with hope, and hope is filling me from boot to brain. Back to life, I have made the traversal!

A black dove rises and looks as if someone has taken scissors to the sun, cutting the shape clean from a disc of foil. Do you know what this means? This is no mirage. This is a homage to what came before. Now I am a featherweight in front of fate... watch me fly with the backdrop of space and past glories.

Time to meet with moons and wax wonders for worlds unseen.

Mirage is for the eyes. Baldocaster is for the ears. This music made is for the heart and may it beat a billion times in happiness.
