    As fickle as the moon is fate
    A face which changes every night
    I sit alone as befits a hermit
    Beneath the stars in fading light

    And ponder of the judgement facing
    This fool who thoughts of hope naive
    Now consequences sit in balance
    Either temperance in sweet reprieve

    Or mocked by hanged men beckoning
    For I to join them bound by rope
    Before the emperor’s vengeful sight
    As the empress and devil elope

    With torture in the name of justice
    I’m bound tightly to fortune’s wheel
    Do I flee upon a fearful chariot
    Or dispel the magician's seal

    Which hides the secret to this life
    No cheap tricks left to delude
    Me as I stand upon the tower
    And look up towards death’s prelude

    Half way to the sun which swiftly
    Sets my scar covered skin aflame
    Though doubt still ever plagues my soul
    No Icarus am I in deed or name.

    To burn to cinders, as much as I
    Wish for release, I know I can’t
    Quite reach the holy gift of suicide
    protected by the hierophant

    Though delirium plagues my being
    And hallucinations fog my eyes
    My strength endures at least for now
    I shall not falter, but shall rise

    Perhaps with no lovers touch to heal
    My heart, which remains smashed and swirled
    But the high priestess may mend my flesh
    So I stand one more day in this world.

    In my work to try to get over this writers block, I wanted to try something a bit different. I chose to try to write something including the names of all 22 major tarot cards... no idea why, but I kind of enjoyed the process.

    The kind words are appreciated :)

    Might try a couple more kind of like this, with some particular focus to certain sorts of themes, seems as though I can manage to write it even with writer's block.
