The Labyrinth

The Labyrinth

A Poem by SheerTerror


                                     
A labyrinth constructed in perfection

Hues claim color blue for their reflection

Old and new take turns in violet isolation

A Spectrum designed in oblivion

        Nowhere to find safety, fall or learn to fly the horizon

abysses hold my untold as a hidden tradition

these secrets are folded delicate

like warm winter blankets           

Sitting in the attic on the sunny side of regret

These Loft windows lay unarmed and clear

My Fear watches over the skyline with a cracked mirror

Searching for a lost child, my child

Gone far into the labyrinth

Grey Clouds offer tears to replace a thunders rest

And I mourn while evanescent with wonder

Of my children, gone and left behind

Detained by fate for spending stolen time as mine

Destiny's fight unwinds

my last chance to shine




Terry D’Arcy-Ryan

You have been progressing very well with every poem you write. A sense of pain and longing for her child who is lost in the secrets of Labyrinth is amazingly crafted here, SK..

Poignant and lovely write as always.
Keep writing and thanks for sharing this amazing writing.

you write very skillfully. i love your wording. the imagery you paint is fantastic. your writes seem to reflect an internal tug of war with deep emotional sombre crosscurrents from the past going on. very cool title and pic captures. i always enjoy your work. i liked your style from the first time i read one of your writes. you have a keen wit and eye for detail and feeling. bravo!

A beautifully written maze of poetic purity. The words you chose are varied and tie the poem together very well. Seems to portray regret and a hope for the future and perhaps peaceful oblivion/rest when you are finally finished with your search for enlightenment or love or redemption. This poem is open to a multitude of interpretations and that is partially what makes this poem so fantastic.

Different people will interpret this differently depending on their experiences and beliefs. This also reminded me of the myth of the Minotaur that lives within a labyrinthine maze where there is no escape.

The sheer magnitude of this poem is grand in scope and I adore this poem because of it.

An amazingly deep and beautifully written poem brimming with complex themes and concepts, Milady! :D
