A Poem by TerryDarcy-Ryan akaSheerTerror

Air bends against my body

touching willows in the wind

The Stream curves below

Drifting and then pulls back again

constant movement a weave and thread

Shades of white and grey expand

Faces inside are tempted and hide

This divine right shines the sense bright

dark sky chanters herald in melodic design

human limitations sleep quietly

perched inside

exposed by an unkind light

Waking truth and departure from flight

joined with fallen others lost in descent

Our plea a mere bellow in the darkest midnight

a vision of disappearing sights

Leaving alone the moon to it's glow

fallen others before us behold

lighting a land of green with gold

Countless stars dismount and bend in honor

Stardust falls like snow lighting the road

This noble salute from heaven emulates for evil or good

Mesmerized and holding flight as a mystery told

Pulling undone this true right of second nature

It is the prize deep inside or a map to a treasure

falling further to find

a world stacked sky high in decline

the dark executioner waiting times unwind

Complete with sweets from a demon queen

ruler of vengeance and anger

Mere weapons for hire

Aimed to rob the earth of color

We fall whispers of a feather seeking prayer

Reaching for the key to grace's door

Blinded by tales of heavenly desire

And a tricky devil living under the floor

Author's Note

TerryDarcy-Ryan   akaSheerTerror
I wrote this after waking from a dream. In the dream I could fly this is an incredible feeling. I briefly thought about the world below and I could no longer fly. My wings gone and I braced myself for a fall. Just a dream. If your still reading thank you and God Bless

Dreams often have 'hidden' meanings, often trying to sort out problems in one's inner mind. I do see this as a fear of the fall from grace. You write it amazingly well, and it makes a wonderful poem.

I love the pictures... and the writing, good god damn you are talented. And I would never ever say that unless I meant it; I'm even an atheist.

Awww, shucks. :) I'm just humbly standing near the light of awesome coming off of you, dude. :D
Incredible and classically beautiful poem. Eloquent language with lovely form, flow, and rhyme. Thank you for the explanation, and this just enhances the content. "Stardust falls like snow lighting the road"-lyrical and transcendent. Kudos!

Again, wow... I never know what to really say after reading your poems like 5+ times in a row to myself, aha... May I ask how you write the rough draft? Meaning... Do you write it all together, unedited at the start, or do you actually edit as you go, and finish line by line. I am sorry to ask, I am just amazed at your words and the way you tilt up and down with your scheme... Stellar work, absolutely some of the best writing I have had the pleasure of reading in a long minute... Perfectly penned... I would quote lines, but the entire thing is worthy of being quoted...

"We fall whispers of a feather seeking prayer"

This is so descriptive of vain hope that what is...is not. Like flying in your dreams and crashing but never landing upon wakening.

Very eloquent, beautiful language.

When I was a young girl I was your average Tomboy. I lived to watch Star Trek the only thing that could take me away from the voyages of the Star Ship Enterprise was playing Baseball with the boys. .. more..
