Wounded Souls/By Sami Khalil
( The reality of our human conditions )
))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))

Perhaps, I have missed 
the mirrored disbeliefs, 
when my soul's shadows
pesaded and darted in the wind,
disposed to chase uncertainties
in its truculent, patterned images,
carved from pugnacious ruckuses.

Perhaps, I was the grim reaper,
of many pointless pastiches,
seeking passages to endless augurs,
where tempests blow away flotsams,
across hollow spaces of birthing
histories, of man's scathing rote
upon memorized blank pages.

Perhaps, I found true comprehension,
coming out of rabbit holes,
seeking new contentment colors
and new scents of an old nature,
away from the ravin's underworld,
shaping rewinding narcissistic dreams,
osculating dawn's new sunlight.

Perhaps, I was the sacred witness, 
betoken a new application
to sagacity, spilling ink where candles
burnt the past in all directions,
leaving fleeting traces of wispy clouds,
becoming the silent pillars
of the self and wounded souls.

Perhaps, you are...I'm!

Sami Khalil,
"Wounded Souls"
This poem really told the sad story of how we can walk and live in poor choices and negative actions. Your use of words like; truculent, pugnacious ruckuses, pastiches, (I had to look them up) really set the stage for the opposite of a peaceful, contented existence.
How we build our lives and interact with others is tricky for all of us but this poem of yours was very educational as it showed how to reap negative, and unhappy results in ones life. Your very apt art work truly spoke of the bondage of selfish ambition and the resulting pain when we live selfishly and even with sinful intent. I would love to hear any other back ground on this poem because it is quite wonderful and useful for the intricacies of life and people.
Bless you.
Kathy

If I would call this one something, it's philosophical. And I love philosophical writes. Again I will always start what made this poem click for me. The tonal changes clearly present, how easily like the human emotions change so does tone of the poem. The flow again very sublime, credit also goes to the way you have structured them. Again your vocabulary is impeccable in terms of terms as well those image invoking words that are present throughout this write. Perhaps just my interpretation, but I think to a certain extent we become too lost in life (which is a struggle in itself) that we end up not having time for even stopping twice and thinking about what's happening around us. And then when we do maybe a little too late. Funny how the human psyche usually goes into denial with such things, especially when it comes to a wounded heart. Thank you for sharing Enjoyed the read a lot. ^^

Well, I love the last grouping the best as I think it says the most. It would be nice if candles could just burn our pasts, leaving wispy clouds of remembrance for all that we wish could be totally forgotten. Valentine

One exquisite piece of work with just the right amount of scholarly obscurity.
If there are things here I'm not fully grasping, I can say, with conviction, that I well understand "wounded souls." I am one; caused more than I care to recall; live among and tolerate many--at times, minister to some. Have even fought those whose grievous wounds made them into monsters.
Your poem is an amazing work of art, Sami!
My honor and blessing to read.

In poetry and to find answers of who we are while walking the ephemeral road upon cracks of pain signs leading you.
The first mistake
A band of soldiers finds diplomacy in the dreg forest comes with consequences.
