Thread: General Original Poetry

  1. #211

    Default Poem to Vishnu

    Treat me like a stranger and I will grow strange to you.
    The circle has flipped and what you expected of me is not what you see. I'm coming out the other side a brand new child.. The harbinger of tidal waves and destruction , the circle comes, I wield the weeping staff of Hermes, bound no longer as a snake is to the earth. Too long has wisdom kept silent while fools and pretenders usurped the song of eternity....

    The grey grey sky
    Vortex swirling in my eye
    Remind of home
    The empty paged
    Tome

    Fill in the blanks
    Wind lashed sail
    I've been capsized
    Lay down your reeds and run
    Into my soft eyes

    Light my way homeward
    With your hearth
    You of the stars
    Me of the earth
    We journey on as
    Life turns toward
    The endless dream
    I hear you, you have so much to say unsaid, it lets in a scream

    Lay down those reeds and run to
    My soft sheets
    Heartbeats in time
    Inside the warm hearth
    Glow
    Ive been at sea, salt sprayed and weathered and your the last true love I'll ever
    Know

    After midnight
    Something comes over me
    Something draws my heart to breaking

    I guess it?s the moon
    That starts me to swoon
    And fans flames of my pain in the making

    I wish that I loathed it
    I wish I would sleep
    Just shut it all off and succumb to the deep

    But my guiltiest pleasure
    My lustful endeavor
    Is to follow my passions and leap

    Thousands of years built on a prism of my tears
    Kings and castles came and went
    All things, great and small
    Have come to disappear

    My spirit floats on the 4 winds, I ride the whale road
    Sirens and songs taunt my melancholy mind
    I see the bloated and bleached
    A story now untold

    I don't fear your hidden, sharp ,spikes
    I've been laying on a bed of nails
    You walked hand in hand with a fear stricken child
    Im headed for that siren song, with my wind- tattered, sails

    A maelstrom of words
    on a million pages
    And yet I miss the mark

    As a swirling vortex
    of color and mist
    Will still obscure the spark

    I can count every fear
    Every star in the sky
    Every tear in my eye
    Blinked away

    Yet what does it mean
    I have come and have seen
    The words on my tongue
    I can’t say

    A maelstrom of words
    on a million pages
    And still I miss the mark

    I search and I seek
    through the days and the weeks
    still not finding your face in the dark

    Default Last Night

    At the center of things
    the heart lies heavy
    At the crossroad
    Dark dreams swirl around

    Exciting entrances, lure us in
    facades that deny egress
    Don't be fooled
    You're in the ganglion now

    Look again, see the tumulus
    see the shining in the snarl
    At the crossroad
    The juncture of representation

    Will you hold me till I fall
    I failed to count the hour
    I lost my way and lost it all
    the sweetness turned to sour

    I lost my focus
    caught the breeze
    went tripping 'mid the flowers
    and now, too late,
    I missed the date
    Got soaked in summer showers

    The universe is trying to kill me
    My brain is it's weapon
    Seeking comfort in
    The fuzzy memories of infancy
    Repeating these meaningless moments
    Perpetually

    I can find no solace
    My mind, a powerful weapon
    Turned inward
    If there is no purpose to life
    We will whither
    Just an echo
    To fade forever
    As it leans into
    The eternal dark

    I'm dying to create
    An answer for my existence
    Hydrogen atoms fusing
    As we accelerate
    Heavy with doubt
    our core collapses

    The ghost flies free
    On the stellar winds
    The uncertainty of
    Our photonic guesses
    Will speed us on
    To a singular plan

    Meanwhile, another light
    Burns in the sky
    Polaris
    Polaris
    In the north
    Born full of power
    And cosmic circumstance
    The death/life cycle
    Of ?ons
    Dreams will bleed
    From the edges
    Of the plane

    Intro/Outro

    The light travels
    Onward through time
