A Halloween inspired pumpkin piece
Hollow Knights

Around a canvas, orange hide
Just beyond life's veil
Lights we harbour, burn inside
Carving out the tale
A tapestry in amber flesh
Woven, cut in place
To locate other patches, mesh
Our gods and monsters faced
With shadows cast, projected, lit
Thrown outside, they play
They dance to find a place to fit
Flickering away
Burning slowly as it goes
A light to warn and call
Turning lowly, fits and throes
A beacon to enthral
Routed facets, rhythmic flashes
A lure raised, a stake
After fire, there are ashes
… a phoenix in their wake
Crawling from the hollows
At the same time, old and new
Calling from time borrowed
A marriage bold and blue
A marriage of desires
Of all the things we choose
Where hopes and dreams conspire
With all the things we lose
All the things that fall through
Holes cut along the way
The nights carved faces grin through
The shadows of the day
The things that we hold onto
The things that we can't face
Afraid, reluctant, withdrew
The things we should embrace
Sculpted on the surface
Sometimes running deep
For those who make a purchase
the prices can be steep
On the whole it's worth it
Uses can be found
Pieces that might not fit
Can soon be turned around
To make a different picture
So messy, yet complete
A jigsaw puzzle scripture
A mosaic strewn time sheet
A soul spelled out, a heartbeat penned
Adorned, a pumpkin mount
We all are stories in the end
Lets make the pages count
