I don’t think I’ve ever tried writing a poem, or a piece resembling one in style or rhyme, but here goes a try. No matter how you view this I hope you enjoy it!
– Oh, pretentious beast within, thou thirst is never settled!
By day I abhor that which in night I have loved
A faceless courtesan stealing my soul
In sand filled vastness, my voice merely whisper
For apathetic time, I condemn myself to die quicker
Misshapen and foul
From inferior birth I crawled in this life
Twice death, not once life.
Days of spring,
Distant charmers – I call upon you now!
Days of autumn,
Fiery morrows – I long search for you, come!
To light me up and wake me from my sorrow,
To rid me of that haunting hollow,
Harbored deep inside my core
But if my soul demands some light
It be burning through my eyes
Asking me to cloak myself forever
Never grasp another light of day, not ever
Abandoned in the midst of stormy weather,
I cry for shores distant and unknown
A voice now slowly fading
For a life just barely known
While Passionless time never halts
Inside this epic desert
Which I abhor.
