Where is my Faith?

Where is my Faith?

A Chapter by TL Boehm
"

a forgotten one from the Vault

"

The exaltation of doves

Hope flung wild against the breaking dawn

A riot of light in a quiet sky

With the tenacity of crocus

Color breaks across the frozen snow

Heartsick I shiver

Waiting

For the warmth to reach deeper

Than my skin

Where frost sets in

Faith obliterated

This murder of crows

Picks the bones of dreams

Ill conceived

In the rush of passion for peculiar things

The thrum of oily wings

Scatters ashes across barren ground

I am found

Empty

Seeking your face in the empty space between

This heart without hope

Iisn’t worth any effort to save

Birth a dirge for faith cast in an open grave

No breath of life expressed from my lips

I’ve come to grips with this inevitable reality

Only you can reignite the burned out light in me

- I am uninspired. So I am just going to write until that capricious little muse comes back. I don't need her anyway. Its only words...in a particular order, one at a time...like walking. Inspiration is for those too weak to STAND unaided in the face of their specific realities. so PFUH..

Not really but I wish I were inspired...so much easier than sweat equity.

Beautifully woven, love how you describe self slipping away, yet still intertwined with the universe. Namaste.

Thank you, Waya
interesting write, for as much as you try to speak of being uninspired. All I feel is inspiration here, shining through the shadows of things we all are unsure of...yet find the courage to drudge trough.....and to me, that is inspiration. Just believe in your 26 letter challenge every time your brain turns over a new thought, whether good or bad, because it is a sure sign...that you are so alive...!

It's easy. Just sit and stare at the page until your eyeballs fall out and then write about it.
