Canceled Contract

Canceled Contract

A Poem by Marianne Rose
"

A spiritual journey

"
The windchimes fall silent in the chill of the morn,
remnants of violent dreams cause them to mourn.
The hush of near dawnlight has muted each bird,
suspended a dark night with one single word.

"Sleep", the voice whispers, "and do not awake".
Joy quickly withers inside each heartbreak.
Seductive and charming, the voice casts a spell:
The tone so disarming, a sound I know well.

In silence it conjures a stream of the past
with no time to ponder, it moves by so fast.
My mind is enraptured, my body lies still;
The sunrise is captured by his iron will.

I silence alarms and watch the film play,
not taking up arms to fight for the day.
The dawn comes to spite him, no warmth do I feel,
the rays remain too dim to cancel the deal.

The birds call to wake me from paralyzed sleep,
I cannot shake free of the lies of the deep.
Caught between planes of darkness and light,
two kingly reigns, one lifetime fight.

I still the projector, remember the call,
of angel defector from the time of his fall.
But no spell can steal me from who I've become,
I rise to be free and know where I've come from.

Another word voices the call to awake;
I break with past choices to heal this heartache.
Now into an age of suffering and fear
I bring forth the sage and sweep this life clear.

The contract is broken, the shadows depart.
One true word spoken paints a new work of art.

The journey is inspiring here... The lines "the hush of near dawnlight has muted each bird/suspended a dark night with one single word" starts of the poem with a deep thought... The second stanza speaks of the darkness very well and how it had been controlling the world around the poet... "the sunrise is captured by his iron will" this line hits home with how the darkness trying to hide the light from the world, the poem is very deeply meant with how the evil forces try to hold the good forces of this world down... But light will shine through it, sun will rise no matter how dark the world becomes... Your concept is so very thoughtful and I can relate to the feelings of it very well... The ending leaves a hope, and I finally realized which contract is cancelled... Lovely work dear frnd...

I reviewed that one. Loved it!
as we get towards the end, older, the truth seems to come more easily...deception becomes a thing of the past---we feel it is time to rest our head on the pillow honestly...the scales somehow balanced...

we come to terms...
