Never Ending

Never Ending

A Poem by Perdition

Whatever claims your fate or head or sinful notion
Fluttering in from space or some other plastic temple
Whatever breaks that midnight stare
Trailing in dispersant shadows,

The face of it hanging on the wall
Sways a crooked hat that runs to some cherry crypt ‘morn

Whatever blushing star,
Fragrant sound, or distant hush
Spell binds your reason
Like an untouched ovary against the galaxy

Whatever was will never fade
Inviting a seed of perception, a pain, a want
To walk
Along all that has deserted

Whatever slit this world into two and yours within
Be it shackled or winged
Spoke its wounds into your ear
And aged like sweet knowing mountain air
Relieving the story from its weight
Obsessing the obsession
Only now
What is out there
Is within

We, you, she or it absorbs life as it hums past day to moment.

You quote such minor-major thoughts, '.. blushing star.. fragrant sound, or distant hush.. ' knowing the brain and heart absorbs them even a breath or gasp. Tis said we're every person we've ever met, every place ever been, every emotion ever felt.. ' your finely expressed words seem to sit longside.

Deep. I really would like to know how this poem came to be/was inspired. What sound, or what notion moved such intensely delving thoughts to be written down and then typed up. I like this poem, its certainly isn't something to just brush over but rather reread several times over. Think on, and ponder... well written indeed. What meaning was the central core concept that you were intending on expressing with this?
Thanks for sharing!

Thank you!
Your words are so deep and profound, Perdition. The image is perfect too. I understand them on a very personal level. “ Like an untouched ovary against the galaxy”- brilliant simile. Language, flow, theme all amazing. Vibrations, Obsessions intrude on our quiescent wavelengths, overcome our filters. Profound poem.

I'm sure there is a lot of meaning in this that I missed, as I am not always so bright, but this is beautiful and flows really well. Great job :)

You're welcome, it was a pleasure.
This poem is a melodious catharsis. The poem as a whole is very nice, but my favorite part is the last stanza. I guess those lines resonated with me the most.

Appreciate the reading....the last stanza is my favorite as well. thank you~
It seems to zig zag here and there - which I do not think is a negative thing - I am always reminded that we already have it ALL within us - and when I was reading your words it was this thought banging me in the head ... you closing words brought it all home ... in the circles and roundabouts, sooner or later we all come home X Nicely done my Friend X

Thanks for the good words and for stopping in. Glad it spoke to you.
very interesting twists and turns ..to the inside of things ;) a scent of nihilism perhaps .. this in particular "...spell binds..." my noodle "Like an untouched ovary against the galaxy" wow says i! never could a purer warrior be found ... i think the closing is so strong ..the schisms without and within .. tearing and rending ... i get a brief resolution when the weight is lifted ..but ...not quite ... still the dilemma persists as now it lives within me ... what a spooky kind of trip this is for me ... for internal people there can be very serious dangers .. and great reward as well ... whew .. i will try to take this one with me today .. in gratitude for my moments ;)

ps. noticed a review you left on Kelly's Keats tribute and thought i would invite myself to your house ...hope you don't mind :)
