Verse 4:  Anomaly

Verse 4: Anomaly

A Chapter by Glen Yumang Manese


Anomaly

 

Why me, why you and why is not anyone else?

Why is such a difficult anomaly?

But the issue is you, my queen.

But for me facts remain the same.

Why me, why you and why is not anyone else?

Why is such a difficult anomaly?

Issue was always you, my queen.

For me facts are still the same.


You summon a bishop explain God’s mercy.

Accidental can be fatal at times to see.

Not the answer you want to hear.

Take opinion of the other plea.

Circle of time keeps ringing in your ear.

You fight on for a king and glory.

Fury has consumed your reality.

Your pawns are at beck and call.

Your knights are at ready to banish off wolves.

Feeling of invincibility never renders to fall.

Your rooks offer much protection at the moment.

Stonewalls are slowly crumbling to the ground.

Crown and tiara will eventually come crashing down.

What glitters in shining armor rusts through over time.

Desirable is lost in grown men that need more than beauty.

Jester’s glee cannot keep them entertained any longer.


Why me, why you and why is not anyone else?

Why is such a difficult anomaly?

But the issue is you, my queen.

But for me facts remain the same.

Why me, why you and why is not anyone else?

Why is such a difficult anomaly?

Issue was always you, my queen.

For me facts are still the same.


Life was all about taking risk to get what you want.

Honor and power is all yours.

Be careful my queen battles of love are many.

Only the strongest hearts can triumph burden.

Nothing’s meant to last forever.

Not even you and me.

I feel references to the fall of great empires, not just because of the references to chess and battles but there seems to be an overarching theme that parallels the decline o all great empires. The line about the jester not entertaining, reflects Rome and even America today. What do the personal elements of this poem mean? How do they relate to what s happening in the world? Do you ever feel like even love can't save s from the wilderness of tigers who are closing in?

Such a wonderful use of symbolism in this emotional piece. You speak from the heart and yet you are able to have a bit of fun with it.
