Torn VeilA Poem by Dreamer
Sometimes the word 'Good'bye is so very inappropriate in the situation
Illusions and quintessential dreams,
Fairytales, always thought invading it seems
Intangible fingers formed by sheer will power,
Embarked upon their journey from a mature mind to a naive heart.
Breaking down walls that, like the ones from Jericho, stood invincible until the gifts of the mind; common sense and rationality, were blasted from ancient horns.
See what is really there.
Lift the veil.
Move pass the words engineered for flattery.
Hear the actual emptiness.
Take a single step forward,
Letting the cloak of pretense,
Threaded with denial,
Beaded with those illusions, dreams and fairytale ideas,
Hit the floor.
More bare than the waste land that is your word.
Standing before me- once upon a time,
Covered in the dust,
Of journeys travelled in your life.
Sparring the pusillanimity of my nature,
Brushing the dust, off your face.
Secretly parched from my own roads that I have taken.
I was spinning my own illusions,
From the temporary golden thread that spewed from your lips,
The well ran dry.
Now I'm watching those beautiful words evaporate,
Knowing that you will soon evaporate in the sun.
Had you removed your hands from my eyes,
The sight of approaching darkness may have caused me to flee
Only time would have told
But at this hour I have heard all that I need.
So I humbly reclaim my dismantled heart,
I'll coat my spine with steel,
Setting you free...
Silhouette riding off in the distance
I will not fight this need to cry,
Mouth full of razors,
I whisper to you...
