To Love, From Chaos; Poem re. Turning Point of Addiction

To Love, From Chaos


My Liege, I live in Chaos

My life, is in a fray ...

While, my faculty of reason

Begs to have its say


But, wouldn’t this be tarnished?

Its record, pierced by slight

Which allies rationale

Whose lance, is just as blight


This exacerbation

Bears only onto crux

While, Harbinger Omega

Delivers, paradox


My cognizance implodes

My instinct, turns to flight

My own interpolation

Fuels my awful plight


The impact of emotions

Sets joy, adjunct to hell

Where feelings are all easy

But of, difficult to tell


This misery is lonely

This melancholy, bare

As I search for some horizon

On this plateau of despair …


What, is this Obsession

That only aids regression

Into the Murky Depths of Misery!?


And, What of any Lesson

Has come from the Succession

Of frequent, Forlorn Trips to Treachery!?


For the sordid sleuth of sin

Fills me with chagrin!

And masks the hark of Heaven's Helpful Hail


Until, as if by fate

The messages of late

Offer me my freedom through a bail


And now, the rains of spring

— With Thunder in the skies —

Bring forth the very thing

Our hearts cannot deny …


It comes from Up Above

And long has since been here …

It's called, The Gift of Love

— Embrace it — It is Dear!

Thank you so much Uriel. You know, it has been said that the sharing of ideas makes both parties richer, while neither loses anything.

Thank you donotfear. I understand that someone in your chosen line of work would understand this poem of introspection and transition better than most. I have suggested before (where on HubPages I do not recall) that the expression of genuine (appropriate, but unfeigned) LOVE (the gist of the poem) is really the best medicine for all relationships, especially with those who experience significant bouts of distress. This obviously, must include ourselves, including our internal dialogue, and as a result: our own self-perception. The challenge is to find that love, accept it, embrace it, and utilize it thoughtfully, responsibly, AND respectfully. We must then share it unselfishly, in a prudent way.

Thanks for reading my carefully formatted and honest thoughts here on HubPages, and I shall always welcome your input, donotfear.

I appreciate your comment molometer. I have learned some time ago that one's conscience serves him well, and that it is for each our own benefit to consider deeply our pricks of conscience as a type of chastisement from the one who loves us most, so that we can go back to loving ourselves again, quickly, through correction. To hearken without giving heed is of none effect, and only serves to stymie any attempt to learn from our situational awareness, if it can honestly be said to be such, for what does it profit a man to feign attainment? Thanks molometer for your comment.
