Burning Bodies

Manacles made of thoughts
Enchain spirits en-caged
In asymmetric chambers
Of bodies neglecting to heed

Prisoners they conceal within
Terrestrial material planes
Where the tangible struggles
To conceive the impalpable yet

Burning Bodies SS - Burning Bodies

Inexplicably perceives its essence
As it knocks on the soft membranes
Of a mind striving to connect.
The incarcerator attempting
To acquaint, itself with the incarcerated
Who, peacefully surrenders as it knows
It will be freed from shackles with,
The death of thoughts and the burning
Of the corpse.
