The missing fangs

This is a little piece I wrote, as I danced on a field of whimsy.

 

 


I had the answer in my hand and I lost it.

A forgotten face whispers a secret to me.

Like smoke blown into the wind.

It’s all a trick, there is no past.

Please don’t leave me, alone, all alone.

Embraced by the darkness, dimming under such weight.

Everybody is a God, brighter than a star, faster than light.

Sound means something else is there, a fundamental archetype of duality.

One dark future broken by the love of the innocent.

I don’t know where to look because I don’t want to find the truth.

My mind has gone, now to another place.

The broken heart cannot heal, the broken one can drink only tears.

Close your eyes and sleep forever in a lucid dream.

Nothing but dust and scorched earth. Floating through burning haloes.

I see you there, reading this and pitying, but it’s the world that has been sold.

And so The End is Nigh, time eclipsed and encaged like a vision of joy.

The shining ones look away from their creation with not apathy, not disgust, but a wisdom they have learned in defeat.

I found it all out, but where is there to go when the journey is over?

Isn’t it that all things can be learned from, and from the learning comes growth and understanding? I personally have a hunch that is what it is all about. (Please… Read more »

Hi Micheal, What a brave poem and expose of your inner feelings. Half the world has gone insane, maybe more. I am finding it hard to even mix with people due to the fear and hostility everywhere I look. There is a dark swirling of energy that looks hell bent on snuffing out any joy in living… “I don’t know where to look because I don’t want to find the truth. My mind has gone, now to another place.
