Apocryphal obstruction

Apocryphal obstruction

A Poem by Ana B.

This subtle weight of darkness

Has made me an honest liar

With morbid yet gentle sharpness

I step towards the waiting fire.

 

Cleansed; reborn; I don’t really know…

Anything but what it once was…

The blood orchid with its crimson glow

Again has put my world on pause.

 

It swims and swims  - the ever present ennui

While passion is emotionally dismissed.

In this ocean of joy, I simply cannot be

Not while the cold sun mockingly insists…

*Welcome to "Pure Rhymes" Thanks for joining, great to have you...!*

We just seem to like writing about darkness and light... The eternal struggle, every human is compelled to the black or white... How to be happy in the sun and night... Superbly penned...

This poem is hitting on all cylinders: rhyme, rhythm, word choices, meaning, hidden meaning, & so much more! The artwork & musical selection are well considered, too. I love the honest confusion of this line: "Cleansed; reborn; I don’t really know…" and the first stanza is just awesome in every way. I like how your msg is open-ended so that it can be interpreted in a number of different ways (((HUGS))) Fondly, Margie

Thank you for the kind review Margie :)
Licked by flames. A dirty dog, with smoked ash slobber. How the filthy beg to be cleaned...through kibbles cinder warm breath.

Always a pleasure to read you. Thanks for sharing.

' It swims and swims - the ever present ennui

Your use of words is more than substantial.. there's no doubt the emotions, the power and what i see as convoluted doubts about.. how they are for you, what they do to you. 'An honest liar' ?
Hidden truths, perhaps?

I turn myself inside out into a bloody flower blooming for no good reason other than a myriad of absurd desires and fantasies that are so beautiful at first on the surface and then... the music stops and i wake up to a beautiful garden of things I cannot touch. That was a terrible review, I know. You wrote a lovely poem though.
