Fortress of Fantasy by Yolanda Beukes

Pablo Picasso, 1904. Woman with a Crow

Fortress of Fantasy

Taking a leap to that fortress of fantasy

dominating the depraved layer of this sphere.


Surrounded by silver vapours and golden lanes

amity melodies infiltrating my core.


Cry out with worship

drawing me into everlasting ecstasy.


Harmonize this tranquillity within

bestow my rightful circlet –


your descendant of consecration,

among contaminated fiend for too long.


Meet me at your gateway of virtuousness

and hold me in your arms of righteousness.
