Nothingness…

•March 20, 2011 • 1 Comment

Today I awoke from the Dream…

Today I became whole…

Today I became what I have always dreamed…

Today I died.

Yesterday the world crushed me…

Yesterday I was just a child…

Yesterday I was overcome and alone…

Yesterday I was alive.

Tomorrow I will reap the Sun…

Tomorrow I become who I am, shall be, and never was…

Tomorrow I will breathe the ether…

Tomorrow I am nothing.

The Burning Citadel on the Shores of Insanity

(Poetic Prose Trial)

The world was one as I drew my first breath…

The beginning of the End…

And the skies were clear as the fresh dawn…

Then the Darkness began…

You didn’t want me, the stain of your incompetence…

You argued and fought, and in the end you forsook me…

Turned over to the wolves…

The world began to fall apart…

A life of not being wanted, years of separation…

Those who came after claimed the crown…

And as I died more inside,

You took from me my last shreds of humanity…

The world now a devisive duality…the wolves grew tired…

They too forsook me, out in the cold expanse…

Turned over to new masters, the day was gone…

Consumed utterly and completely by night…

I stood to become something…

Something a forsaken could never have…

I am the dark and wasted citadel…

I will forever burn on the shores of insanity….

AND YOU COULD HAVE STOPPED IT.

 

The world has reversed…it continues to fall…

The end for me approaches…

I have had enough…I have done my time…

What gave you the right to destroy me??

The darkness consumes…pulling the soul asunder…

The group of four responsible…

I will hate you forever…you will not escape…

My revenge will be to turn my back at your time of need…

The world lies destroyed now….scorched earth…

Depression replaces anger…

Unimaginable loss will follow me inexorably…

Until I take my last breath…

So when you look across the divide…

And see the burning ruin…

Remember who is responsible…who caused it…

And burn inside as you have destroyed me….

RAISTLIN

It comes out of the night….it comes to feed.  Not to take physically….but emotionally…..spiritually.  This dark Dhaka takes the energy of the soul, it chases me perpetually….as it has done for years.  Most speak of the burdens of life….but I feel I carry the curse of the world.  The weight of the sorrow, guilt, and grief destroy me from within.  It is crushing continuously upon the mind, body, and spirit.   This pain will never leave.  My soul has been ravaged and lost in the winds of ages.  I feel them screaming, I hear them tearing their own bodies in torment…I can see their demise, but am powerless to stop it.  I see the world as through hourglass eyes now…cursed when I first started to lose my mind.  The light was bright that blighted my sight on that horizon’s edge.  Bringing me to my knees, it cursed my mind and darkened my soul.  Now as I walk….the same roads that you walk….all I see is death…the decay of the world surrounding.  To me it is always fall, on the brink of winter to my eyes.  I see the seasons pass as paper to flame….the lives of many pass in my dreams.  I asked not for this…it was given by force.  It is the pain….I am the curse of life.  It is the good in the world reversed…it is a mockery of peace.   I have lost my soul without the benefit of gaining the world….perhaps that will be my salvation in the end….

Walk of Mind (or) The Lyrics That Never Were

Walk of Mind  

or

The Lyrics That Never Were

*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*  

  Speak unto me of sadness,

Breathe into me your sorrow…

Hide me under your wings of Darkness…

For all time…

 

The mind drowns in the essence of pain…

No escape to be found within…

Your face I see in the mirror of thought…

Echoes from horizon’s cusp…

 

Darkness is beauty…a world reversed…

Finding panacea in suffering…

Holding forth the atrocities of ages…

Walk inside this mind with me…

 

Released as a darkening cloud…

Elemental shift and lightless journey…

Across the contemplative plain of dreams…

Eyes closed to ethereal light extinguished long ago…

 

Time passes…a requiem to failure…

While the world revolves under heaven’s wrath…

Death eternal if not in your embrace…

Bringing naught but derision and emptiness…

 

So speak to me of sadness…

Whisper unto me your sorrow…

Take refuge under my crown of grief…

Let us walk this darkened path as one…

 

Until the end of the world…

Walk with me….

My life for yours under the blazing stars…

We have been reborn on this our Walk of Mind….
