Exiled into bliss

September 21, 2010

And this time will be the last

The last thought

The last breathe

The last glimpse of an ordinary world

               As we enter each others well

               They grasp to catch one last glimpse of us

               But the ones they know are already gone

We tumble down through blue and white

Feeling the sense of each other 

We are what home has always meant

Red then black, there is no longer a we 

               So fast we erode stones do admire

               We within each other like heat and fire

               There is no world that will accept us as this

              Exile is greeted and sealed with a kiss              

Para tu Principasia……………37 always

    this is so beautiful and moody…it reminds me of lava tumbling down into the sea


  3. The image is awesome, and your poem too, a tumbling, as Rene said. “Exiled into bliss” – what a wonderful title.

      YEA! You all are making me happy! :).look, that’s me smiling ( not really, I haven’t shaved in like a week, I’m not yellow, I’m not round, my teeth are definitely not that white, and I still can’t find the glasses button. This is all assuming, of course, that an emoticon has appeared and not simply a semi-colon with a para-thingy. Otherwise, this makes absolutely no sense and I am simply rambling on and on and on and on and on. Oh….)
      Really though gospel, Jingle, Rene..thanks for the read and the extremely kind words.

    That looks like one outburst of emotions! Sometimes, one has to throw it out of the system…
    In any case, memories will continue to haunt us.. we just need to learn to handle them better… what say? 🙂

    Your writing was very powerful and intense!
    “There is no world that will accept us as this” — I absolutely LOVED this line… I am very sure many of us can relate to this at one time or the other!

    Thanks for linking this fine piece with Poetry Potluck! We are so pleased to have you here!

      I am glad to be here! Thank you as always for taking the time to read and connect to the emotions.

      “memories will continue to haunt us.. we just need to learn to handle them better… what say?”
      ..they don’t haunt if you invite them and have some tea waiting for their arrival. Buuuuuuuuuutttttt…..sometimes they show up at 3 a.m…drunk.
      In short…yes.

    Amazing! This really speaks volumes!

    These lines really spoke to me:

    “So fast we erode stones do admire

    We within each other like heat and fire

    There is no world that will accept us as this

    Exile is greeted and sealed with a kiss”

    A strong and powerful verse – – “we within each other like heat and fire” depicts the feel of new love to my mind which can fall head first into the tumble of waters and come up only to reel in “each other#’s well” Fine imagery and wonderful image.
