The Traveler

The Traveler

A Poem by Final-Karma
"

Is this real? Or are we infinity?

"
Sing with me a melody
Of time and space

My heart scattered among stars 
A universal embrace

Are we all alone?
Do we feel at home?

I dream under different skies
Your body next to mine

When you leave I will follow
The hunt over galaxies trace

You'll be Artemis
I'll be your Orion

The Scorpio will seal our fates
Out in this darken space

No more to see
Endless distance

Between you and me
I will go on forever

Planet to planet
The fire of Prometheus spreads

Giving our bond life
Tearing me apart at every step

I begin to feel numb
Don't you see that?

This chase
This hunt

It eludes me at every turn
Taking me further from you

If home is where the heart is
My heart was lost long ago

Pierced by your arrow
Trapped between a rib cage

I give up the chase
My time has come

Floating on lost love
I close my eyes 

Every time we touched 
Every moment we shared

I linger on your words
"Life was never built to be fair"

I open my eyes to stars and purple skies
Laying in fields of liquid flowers

Three suns pass over
Night never comes

I feel your embrace

The traveler I am has to end
Scatter me among the stars 

Let my lights shine down
On other wanderers 

Telling them my story
Of love forever found

Showing them my tale
Of love forever bound

Forgive me

That was beautiful and so well written. I know you mentioned that this was not your best, but I still feel captivated by this poem. The mention of Artemis really made me feel more drawn to this poem. I once again added another one of your poems to my fave list as I know I will go back and re-read this at a later date. This really in a way made me think of my story and inspired me because it contains themes that will come up in my story in the future. I adored the ending by the way, so simple and yet so powerful and beautiful. Just two words "forgive me" it left me speechless. Forgive me if my reviews seem over the top and with too much praise, but your poems are so beautiful that I can't help but leave such reviews.

i enjoyed this and read it over twice before i decided to read it from a selfish stance
i found it sorta punchy “Matter of Fact”
“here is my take“

i found by reading it through selfish eyes it read more intriguing


I begin to feel numb
Don't you see that?

bam!

great job

Sometimes its frustrating when what you thought you had keeps eluding you. It may cause us to push for them more because we want to relive what we had before. I think you wrote an interesting tale that left a long trail. Yet, I don't believe its time for you to be scattered to the stars because a new light will dawn on you again soon. Even though you mentioned this isn't your best writing I believe its the opposite. I think people are at their best when they want to write to get things off their chest. Keep going.
