My Reflection

My Reflection

A Poem by Rafy T.Nyx
"

A prose poem concerning mother's love and affection towards child, even after embracing a cursed deathless life.

"
Eternity, welcomed by the darkness
Of eyesight
No feeling, no heartbeat
A sudden heat
Beginning of a sojourn in search for my reflection.

The moonlight of blood-moon
Illuminating the porcelain skin of
Lost predator.

Unquenchable thirst for embracing
The impurities and betrayal with
Wild factor.

Delusion, the running water of silvery brook
Reflecting the image of olive trees and wild roses.

Quick glance,
At the reflector that I could not pass.

My unsatisfied voice, whispery,
"Bloody Mary, bloody Mary, bloody Mary."

A vicious smug smile appeared, not mine.

Landscape of clouded sky with drizzling rain.
The sacred water equally purifying
Criminals, saints, lovers, deceivers
Even the immortal without any shadow
Disappointing lie.

A window of a wooden farmhouse
Familiar scent of damp soil and grape vine.

Alarming touch of lifeless hands
On the glass
Peep through the window
Brushing my eyelash.

There lay my child
Tear stains still visible on baby cheeks
Gleaming in the candle light.

I could not touch my reflection.

Rafy, the intensity that is underlying the word play and structure in this piece; it should be put to music. I wish I could. Your amazing ability to connect with the reader. Perhaps your amazing ability to challenge yourself with your writing. But whatever it is, DON'T STOP because of me. You really hit this piece out of the park. Congrats. take care...dan

Thanks a lot for your kind words, good reviews always inspire me to go on.
'Alarming touch of lifeless hands
On the glass'

a ghostly mother looking in at a life she can no longer touch?
Reference to the blood moon - prophecies? reflecting 'the olive tree' - biblical allusions?

so kind of reconciliation sought between the light and the dark?

you're welcome :)
Thought provoking and so beautifully written. It was kind of atmospheric, like a thin haze of despair looming around on a cold winter night. Excellent use of words which glorified this more.
Alarming touch of lifeless hands
On the glass
Peep through the window
Brushing my eyelash. - I loved these lines!

You're more than welcome
that was gorgeous. I still write poetry that rhymes! but your passion shines through, so does your battle? What are you fighting so hard?
the words kind of flow into each other but the idea is a bit hard to follow but then again I might just not be intelligent enough.
