I stayed in perfect calmness in a cocoon of idleness...
I stayed in perfect calmness in a cocoon of idleness... | Source

Paralyzed for the moment

Laying down white sand

Bathing in a fiery waves of the sea

Blown by the violent breeze.


Through the viewless sky

I see life as a brief sojourn

My soul wanting to sign off

For death is rest and rest I seek.


Poor soul loaded with grief

Struggling to breathe warm air

For peace is sometimes elusive

Hiding beneath as I marvel.


Awaiting for the dawn of eternity

Unreflecting love, I fear no more

For ‘though I have my plans

HE ordained my fate.


I stayed in perfect calmness

And thought of a secret meeting

In the basement of my brain

Eyes wide shut in silence.


…in a cocoon of idleness.

      Ed, so nice to see you here...happy to note you understand (not many do) this one. This is a special piece for me and I appreciate you reading and commenting. And, that song is definitely on my playlist..."When you feel my heat, look into my eyes. It’s where my demons hide...."

      This poem really emphasises how things very rarely go completely to plan, and how some things are simply beyond our control. It sounds like a very obvious thing to say, but I also think it is an easy thing to forget. Letting go of our partly imagined 'control' is such a liberating feeling...you have really captured that feeling here CrisSP..great poem:-))

      The poem sounds like a woman who had an encounter with the man who sang the song. Good thing your faith saved you from his demons.
