Path Of Once More (poem)

Updated on May 12, 2013

I am lost in ever and a day

Bridges crossed but signs were torn away

Forced to wander path I do not know

Filled with flowers of my own dismay


Ahead I feel the sense of darkness grow

Yet some river has me in its flow

There to meet the meaning of my night

Reasons which were planted long ago


Purposeless now has me in its sight

Breeding on confusion of my plight

Hiding window which might set me free

From this cell whose sands now hold me tight


I recall a moment’s destiny

Someone seemed to whisper love to me

From a dream a nightmare bore a child

Though some window nothing came to be


Insanity in flames there went wild

Madness just stood with stranger and smiled

Horror of fog a I sought friendly shore

Drifting with guilt of what had compiled


All that had passed in traces before

Existence had goals one would reach for

Not like this soul forever must stray

With my conscience on path of once more

      Moving and almost gothic at points. The best writing comes from deep inside the soul, with the thoughts and fears we usually keep hidden. This to me is that kind of writing, the best kind.

      Moving, yet sad piece of poetry. Could relate to it somehow...two days ago it seems, when my world turned topsy-turvy for a spell. Voted it up though, as you are a wonderful writer. : )
