Epiphany

Epiphany

A Poem by Tony Jordan
"

"To all who share words know that some are the key to setting another human being's mind free."

"
Free once more!
The fog has gone -
I see now that 
She was never 'The One'

And I see myself
as I was before 
- before I ever set foot 
through her door

My shackles deleted
vision has cleared 
I can't explain how
well I can but it's weird...

Like lightning - a bolt
Words written by YOU
in an insightful and
carefully worded review
 
so thanks to the writer
Who showed me the way
- To live without her 
in my head everyday

You helped me see
That love can be blind
Sure the fetters I carried
were all in my mind

To all who share words
know that some are the key
To setting another
human being's mind free.

"The pen might not be mightier than the sword, but maybe the printing press was heavier than the siege weapon. Just a few words can change everything" reminded me of this, even if a bit (Just a bit) out of context, reminds me of the hidden discrete power that these little yet big thingies can have
words are like ninjas, you won't see them coming, but when they do , you will be stricken with enlightenment if you're pursued by an apt WordNinja

Not as messy or satisfying as trebuchet-ing a putrid cow cadaver at the walls just for effect either.. read more

there is power in words and we must choose them carefully. they plant seeds inside of people and trigger emotions. never know when they will touch us and in what ways. 'the truth sets us free'. you come to acceptance of a love not meant to be by words shared.

"I can't explain how
well I can but it's weird..."

I like this part. When one finds the in between emotions and also expresses clearly the overall sentiment it is nice, like catching a glimpse of something you have passed by a bunch of times, but never caught, or fully noticed.

It is amazing when we can find words and emotions to connect to. This is a very releasing write.

Love is all about being and setting free. So if you find yourself free and not bound in overwhelming emotions, may be she is "the one"...I am not trying to contradict anything in your poem but just my thought lol... beautifully written and smooth flow.

This is not a end of poem; this is an end of love song. It has melody, rhymn, and language that takes the reader into the protagonist's world. Excellent.

I love that this 'sang' to you Ken. As a lyric-aficionado I appreciate that sentiment very much.

Beautiful . Yes every thing is a life lesson
Isn't that a profoundly comforting thought?
Many of us are familiar with certain writers the perusal of whose work often "sets our minds right."
Thank God for those haze-clearers!
Outstanding poem, Tony!

Love the simplicity here, as well as the erratic breaks in meter. It speaks of a freshly renewed man still trembling from what bound him.
