An Image of Revelation

An Image of Revelation

A Poem by C.L. Wilson
"

I was in a dark mood today so I wrote this up.

"

I stand in a hall

Purely white

And all I know are set in frames

Like art

But more like specimens

 

I look into each frame

Polished gold

And find what I once knew

Like observing

But more like revisiting

 

I saw memories, knowledge,

Vivid rainbows,

And than an empty canvas

Like new

But more like erased

 

I reached with my hand

Pale pink

And the canvas burst into flames

Like prevention

But more like protecting

 

I beat the fire out with my hand

Glowing red

And the canvass was burnt black

Like eradication

But more like revelation

 

I stared at the canvass that should be ash

Dusty grey

And then an image appeared of me

Like now

But more like before

 

I was holding in my hands a knife

Shiny silver 

And beneath me was someone

Like a stranger

But more like a friend

 

He was staring at me with those eyes

Icy blue

And they were filled with something

Like fear

But more like resistance

 

I ripped the canvas down to find another

Crimson red

And there was only a faded image

Like a smear

But more like a body
