A Poem by light years in love

What have I done..

words have come into being

spoken from the mouth of my mind

animating the very horror I want to try and hide 

                       this is no game

                      I am no demigod 

art is a reflection of within

               the darkness that has built upon the walls of my heart

peels like paint

coming off in layers as I strip myself of its allure 

its comforting way

the death of me is accepting it

                        to give in is to die

to let go of the pain is life

Author's Note

light years in love


Romans 10:9-11
9 That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved.
10 For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.
11 For the scripture saith, Whosoever believeth on him shall not be ashamed.

Wicked. Really awesome poem with the metaphors and similies of the wall of your heart peeling like paint. The whole thing reminded me of this character from this show called Heroes I think. There was this character that was an artist that was basically an oracle. Everything he saw though basically, was death and torture. The true ugliness in life. Anyways your poem reminded me of him. It was as if you painted his soul perfectly with words. Also, what Emily Burns with explanation of art is never being pretty. To be honest the truth is never really pretty and most of the best artwork comes from a tortured soul or based off a tortured world. Sad really.

A great piece. First of all for its courage and humility, and its second thoughts where fear trys to engulf again. I loved the line about being stripped in layers. So good. Enjoyed.

Made in his own image.
A flawed and vengeful plan.
Is he mad at himself,
or are we destroying what we could be....what we were always supposed to be.
Thanks for this write
