I bid you welcome to my hall.
Herein you will find uncertain hospitality
(Not due to my intentions, which are warm,
But my demeanor, which is sometimes cold,
Or more politely said, austere),
But be you brave of heart and curious
You may find wonders here.
Glimpses of the maze within my mind.
Black roses from my soul’s abyssal garden.
Mayhap a portal to Beyond,
The wheeling stars and shifting threads of veils,
Infinity collapsed into a poem.
I bid you welcome.
Explore my home.
Remove your armor.
Come close, and let me spin my web
Around your heart.
