While Hearts Die in Deaths

Updated on December 15, 2014

While Hearts Die in Deaths

The garden of Eden gave away what was fundamental

The stars gave hope, yet took away what was essential

The thorns that rose contradicted the promises made

The blossoms thenceforth were mere fractions said

I devoured myself, I got enchanted and thus I fragmented

I could confess I Love my family, but I never got that instead

I staggered along the paths I dreamt I deemed plausible

I sowed the seeds that seemed doable, not being gullible

It’s always complicated, they said, I still believed ‘impossible’

The mud that assimilated the souls of unknown possibles,

Firmed the acknowledgment of incomprehensible fables

The fences rose to heights that Time itself could not foresee

I wish I could freeze time in the esoteric snow debris

Alas there wasn’t a weather to claim my endeared claim

There only remained the infinite questions to be responded

The mysteries untold, amongst the clouds thus befriended

I stand, I scream, I cry, I breathe deeply, and I try

But all I can manage is to scrape through and sigh

For the scenes unheard of can only be tried in breaths

And suckled through senses, while hearts die in deaths

      Phyllis, Thanks a lot for the appreciation, and yes it is supposed to be "scream"...bad typo I guess, I wrote it in a tipsy state :P. Thanks so much for pointing out, I'll correct it right away...

      Very interesting and thought provoking poem. In your fourth line up from the bottom, should that be 'scream'? I really like your poem, it is deep and emotional.
