The Perished

The Perished

A Poem by Tania

Do you see , 
all that is 
and all that isn't?

That scratch on the wall , 
did you ever wonder from where it came ? 
What about the rotten chairs lying on the street ?
Yes, the ones in which two souls once sat 
reminiscing the mesmerizing life 
they shared with the world.
The life of wonder and beauty.
The life where love hid in the places 
where no one would gaze at,
awaiting to be found.

The putrid walls are slowly collapsing
shattering  the memory of a touch 
a smile , a kiss, a tear , a breath 
held  within the walls of a dying house.
A house , in which  ripped pieces of papers 
laid on the floor ,
with the writings of a brilliant mind
once  bringing  utter awe into the world.

It is profoundly beautiful 
when we are awakened by the truth.
Isn't it ?
By the only reality we have.
The only stories we can ever tell,
the ones that came before our very essence .
The stories of the past , 
that make us bleed from inside. 
The ones that hold truth and vitality.

Truth is , 
We are folded molecules of written words.
Words already read and pronounced.
We are the observers of a a moving city ,
gazing at the  way the wind blows the day away
with all its life and history embedded in its spirit.

Time is the artist and the world is the art.
Time architects the new day.
It moves a child from his first steps into becoming a man . 
It creates the art of living,
the art  which affects each breathing soul 
with a distinctive color.
A color that is seen differently by each human.

The perished remain perished . 
Writers 
Philosophers 
Politicians 
Architects 
Doctors 
Artists 
are lying on the street ,
awaiting for you to read their stories .
To see their art ,
to walk within their buildings,
and to listen to their music.

We are observers , 
we are breathing stars.

Thank you so much ! I am happy to hear so.
Sometimes when we feel lost
We just sit and watch a world
Moving around us
and absorb all that beauty we have taken for granted for years

Truly a beautiful write
