Fog covered

The memory of love

Silent space

Buried Time

An inclination to rhyme

Lost in my ink’s beak

 

The heart dies

Never flirt with lies

Tell tall tales

Flying whales

Transparence in the absence

Of throbbing matters

 

Should I speak

Bones break silences sway

Dancing lights

Blinding sights

A corpse bride dressed in tatters

The future rust bleak

 

Will iron

Maidens lost in sleep

Yet they weep

Death did creep

Oh the maidens how they weep

In my heart dead mirth

 

Sixteen crows

Dealt me quick dark blows

Endings near

Lost the fear

My walk has risen through Time

Now we leave this Earth

 

Look behind

The pathways they do unwind

Yesterday

Bridges burnt

I live from my lessons learnt

Time a misplaced space

 

Never weep

Those eyes pray keep dry

Daffodils

Love the sun

Waters may touch only feet

Keep tears when we meet

 

Moon waxes

Its light ebbing tide

And I wane

Forgotten

Pegasus your lovely mane

Bore tidal glory

Sacrifice

An inclination

Lost nation

Pennies counts

Doorways to other dark worlds

I travel fearless

 

The Heart flies

In Love I walk whole

Dead timber

My pathway

Burnt bridges my inks restore

Wooden languages

 

Tell me lies

I will decant rhymes

Holy chimes

End riddles

A pied piper roamed in Times

Of dark and fiddles

 

Play me smooth

Piano and cello

Hand on one

Stroking next

You had me once at hello

Now goodbyes linger

 

I built them

The raging towers

Shining dark

Voice and spark

Reclusion the destiny

Mind’s perpetuity

 

Hearts break chains

Heat melting metal

Consumption

Affliction

I turned outwards all sorrow

My streams bathed in red

 

I will call

The moonbeams of Mars

Gods’ altar

Six steps East

Blue whistles invoke the Beast

Nine arrows falter

 

We grow tall

Though weather relays

Icicles

Red sandstorms

Feel whiffs in scurried delays

Scent of tomorrow

  1. I love that you included a recording of you reading it! Your performance of the piece added such a depth to it. You have the perfect intonation and delivery to voice acting or audiobook narration. Check out ACX : http://www.acx.com/help/narrators/200484550

    ok on to the poem, though all the lines present images both lovely and intriguing, I love these lines the most:
    “I live from my lessons learnt”
    “Burnt bridges my inks restore”
    “time lost space”
    “I will decant rhymes”
    They speak such volumes in so few words and provoke such thoughts 🙂
