Path of Grief

Nobody will speak of grief Or abide in its presence for long Nobody knows what to do With a presence comfortably ingrained Suddenly become absence forevermore. Oh! The pillagers and deceivers come! Selling bridges across the yawning abyss As if the disrupted routine could be restored After such irrevocable upheaval. Even could the process be reversed The departed would not be the returned.

End of Illusion

My loves were not with you, charlatan You do not own the stars, the sands, the waters Your fingers snap upon empty air Your commands to the sidereal womb, inconsequential You but claim Lordship in your madness The reaction of our entire species in yours captured. For we are not the Great Ones of our stories When all our words and deeds but serve Extinction When we craft hopes and dreams of glory Only to crush them out of spite and envy. Nature is red in tooth and claw when She must feed When She must live another day, another season to prevail The quest that cannot be denied demands extremes When odds are stacked against and limits Seemingly

Work in Progress

That which can no longer be denied After turmoil's end the atmosphere becalmed Yet joy remains incomplete? Well, that is ever a work in progress Each day's travail both adding and subtracting A tug of war between desire and reality But the balance now is mostly In fulfillment's favor. Perhaps we've learnt to be content With the scavenger's lot Discarded greater ambitions for the essential stuff Or found in postponement of fantasies The surcease of here and now The dream that died cast finally adrift Set aflame with much pomp and circumstance Not so different the high-browed and the barbaric For all in the end must feed That greater need drive

Dark With New Eyes

I had never looked at the Dark with these eyes Despite gazing at it for so long before Entranced by its textures Caressed by the play of shadows Lulled to surcease by its haunting melodies Yet never imbued with lasting tranquility Unrest ever scratching at the seams Of our tapestry. Anxiety upset even the frequently overturned Receptacles of heady offerings The riot and exuberance of chaos undermined The stalwart yet welcoming support Of solid law defiled And there beside the flickering yet enduring Flame Thieving hands dared disturb Dispelling the warmth yet again Now there is no more such disruption Even amid the incessant turmoil Life is w

What the Dark brings in its core Shorthand for our inner code Most conveniently denied Out of idiocy or pride Heroism we so crave We forget from whence all came Whither it must all return Yet our inner self proclaims: Fully aware without pretense Predator thy mantle claim Power ever has a price Rule to serve and fight to guard.

He defied an embodiment of Extinction Dark Warrior against former Overlord Cried truce and used a Hero's might To complete what his alone could not Sacrificed all for what reigns supreme Survived now Lordship is his Because the one who fell To whom he was sworn Would destroy the world. This Dragon would not have cared Before that mate he claimed Became the one sliver of Light for a Dark One to cleave. Then he became the fury of indomitable Nature himself Against that Aspect of Death that no longer served Yet remained himself nonetheless. In a most infuriating Frustrating Vexating Utterly marvelous way He cleansed the Dark of taint And yet pre

You who were naught but trash Until our eyes discerned your worth We empowered you when your own Heroic brethren discarded you We forsook the fealty owed an Overlord Cried truce and invoked alliance with a foe We who did not feel shed tears of relief Who know not fear trembled risking all For the sake of a world in which Your sliver of sunlight yet shone Shame us not with doubt unworthy We have entrusted all to you The sweet fulfillment of our cravings The good, the beautiful, the true That Heroes fight for You are to

Greetings!
Thanks for the watch back! :heart:
I love all your poems! Too bad I can't fave all of them.
Sure, it is my pleasure, and thank you kindly!
Thanks for the fav! :la:
You're very welcome!
My my, so distracted didn't realize I wasn't watching you. Sorry. You know what? Hece meses que vi a tu Princesa Amidala y se la enseñé a mi hija quedamos locas con ella. Justo cuando empeze aqui y aun no te conocia, ni a Zelka ni Sandra ni nadie.... coincidencia? No creo... Cuidate.
Muchísimas gracias, tanto por el watch como por fijarte en mi querida Reina Amidala, q.e.p.d. Un abrazo.
