Hello, everyone! I originally thought that I wasn’t going to post today, but I decided to post after all, because I love you all so much. :-3
This is my first attempt at free verse poetry. Tell me what you all think! 🙂
Edit: Meaning and inspiration for this poem now up. 🙂 Read here!
Screaming out voiceless into the night
Pleading my freedom behind glass walls
No light shall shine upon my hopes
And dreams all die away
None can hear my voice again
Trapped behind these invisible walls
Unseen, unfelt by any hands
My grace fades like the twilight away
Unheard as in a genie vase
With pain I call; shadows grip about me
Dragging me down into depths unknown
Where back behind oblivious minds
Their shadows call away, mocking, mocking
With voices none but I can hear.
They trapped me here behind their minds
A guardian who no longer walks free
To guard from evils the heedless ones
Who say that evils do not exist. Liars!
Before they locked me away, they mocked me
And doomed their world to spin away
Leaderless, helpless, into excoriating black,
Since they deny that black exists.
None shall follow now.
I can not protect that future until the past is reconciled.
I lie trapped behind the walls of hate
Of those who say they do not hate.
They have numbed their minds; they do not see
What lies before them, what fate they set themselves,
What doom they forged for their children’s children,
Covered over with the glamour of countless lies,
Cemented with the blood of countless children.
And here I will lie, screaming unheard, unfelt,
Beyond the reach of sound, unseen,
A light cast by no shadow here, invisible,
Unknown, unthought, wishing to be unmade
Until at last the walls crumble down, leaving me free,
Free, to dissolve away at last, free, to throw myself on empty space,
Free to discorporate into bodiless light, seek oblivion,
And pray once more to cast myself, alone, unnamed, unbodied
Stripped of all that once I thought was me
Naked before the Throne and empty, alone,
At last of all these illusions free
Between my self and eternity
The truth: A servant of the Divine.
The lie, nonexistence. I cast myself on God’s mercy,
And He shall hear and succor me.
Yes, there is a story behind this. But I want to hear all your guesses first. Maybe I’ll post tomorrow and tell you what the inspiration was if you make lots of good guesses today. No, that was not a bribe. Oh, who am I kidding, it totally was. 😛
Cheerio! See you all tomorrow! 😛
