Death of a Poem – in another poem !!!!!!

Updated on June 20, 2015

Poetry is thoughts that breathe, and words that burn.

— Thomas Gray

A few drizzling pain

To quench the thirst of the words so free,

Some freezing rain

So lucid to wet the meaning of sense tree.

Flowing with wild flow

From the soul to wet the pages on fire,

Emotions do cringe

Feel the ice within the craze to retire.

Sense to visit baloney

For a change to kill the life so wasted,

Words to create felony

For a heart in pages to kill time crested.

Azure tears to wrinkle

The smile of lonely frowns of readers,

Mind gets berserk

For the raw deal redeem the fillers.

Dagger to split the heart

In many portions to mean the words,

Pages do cry to death

For the crimson blood bathe swards.

It’s the irony of blasphemy

To go beyond the no men’s land,

An empty casket of buoyancy

Spill the pages of history for errand.

Wondering ideas of evasion

To arrest the interest for illusion,

Shared silence in the funeral

Free the sublime joy of intuition.

Never the less…..

Let a poignant poem expire in ersatz racket,

Words do dive……

Sigh last breath in bottomless dark bracket.

Restive souls relaxed in orchid vine….

Tears jerked some feathery smiles,

Emptiness sure was tired of mime…

Darkness illuminated rare candles.

Aroma of flowers smelt few dried roses…..

Interment legacy sang a new chant,

Parade of shadows bloom to full moon nights…

Then and there…the history of a poem was buried blunt.

In the night of death, hope sees a star, and listening love can hear the rustle of a wing.

— Robert Green Ingersoll

      Your use of symbolism while intertwined with deep emotion is exceptional. The reader has their own take on a poem and I related perfectly.
