Scentless eyes

February 3, 2011

What do you know of death

In the moments that are crushed beneath your feet

When have you ever felt its breathe

Too busy ignoring, juggling your social feats

          Life is the stale of the dead break

          Time without options and endless wake

          Burnt timbers sting within the nostrils

          But yet you never wake

What do you know beyond death

The space that quivers and shrills for no requested audience

When have you let every last drop fall

Feeling true sadness from the depths of our mothers’ chest

        In low light, there is ember

        Tow baskets of hell and pleasure

What do I know of never being born

Dancing in a place that cannot be denied nor grasped

When have I stepped blindly into the void of concept

Simply, being human

    Wow… a very powerful and intense read, Woih!! That last stanza was too good!! Many a time, we are just caught up in our own so-called miseries that we fail to see what’s beyond… and we simply fail to live…
    An excellent portrayal of human life, my friend.. and of how we tend to attach so much importance to our petty little problems and make a dark world of our own.. (sigh)…

    Now I hope you are participating at the Thursday Poets Rally (week 38)… If not already linked in, I would really love to see you HERE, my friend… read on, and enjoy!

    Best Wishes!!
