Reunion

Reunion

A Poem by Katy

Trapped inside a person's head
They wish they were dead
Neither at home and neither in Hell
Just prisoners inside of a cell

As soon as one vessel dies 
They are forced onto the next one
Too good to be called demons
Too damaged to become the light

Eternal wander
Now it's over
The journey is about to end
Only if I manage to ascend

Thousands of years have passed
They found their Creator at long last
"Forgive me for running away", I said
"You are now safe inside my head"

Very deep poetical theme; a tale of wondering souls and their transmigration! Reminds me of; Saṃsāra - a Sanskrit word that means "wandering" or "world", with the connotation of cyclic, circuitous change! It also refers to the theory of rebirth and "cyclicality of all life, matter, and existence", a fundamental assumption of all Indian religions. Interesting write … :-)

Very thought-provoking philosophical message! Normally I don't think too much about living & dying, but you've used strong imagery & interesting analogies to make this message pertinent. I especially like the way you switched to dialogue at the end, as speaking can be the most powerful way to convey a climactic idea. Fondly, Margie

am feeling Plath here...and maybe Sexton...trying to come to terms with ourselves, and what is going inside our heads....some never can...others write their way to solve that conundrum...
i like your style...it is honest, almost brutally...but eloquent in delivery.

It is amazingly abstract and to the point...and apart from rebirth, if that was your idea of writing it in first place, am able to relate it to a single birth only..
People keep switching their partners, their groups till they find the right one...and in the process they lose something and they gain a few things...
I wrote a little too much this time ..than I generally do but I guess it was writing that made me do so...🙄

Safety inside my own head... Or is it another... Too damaged to become light... Eternally wandering... Am I good enough to be called a demon, even... Probably not... Deep, my friend...
