ashen fields

A Poem by Pax

I sit alone as if I am fading

Invisible in the ashen fields.

My heart longs to be somewhere

to where I see myself

Clear as the new day

True to oneself’s beauty

Away from the toxicity of people’s opinion

Or as far away from my own shadow of doubt.

 

I sit alone & not running anymore.

Losing strength as the wind passes by

Losing a bit of my edge in this unreasonable persona, I face.

Yet I never give a damn as long as I kept on going

Reaching for something Unreachable,

I can only hope…

 

I want to feel the life of someone’s at arm’s reach

to feel that I am alive

I missed you.

How awesome it would be to be away from the ashen fields of a toxic, judgemental world. Even from our own self-doubting selves. Away, in a place of quite solitude with someone who reinforces and completes us, so we don't feel like running any more. Thanks for such insightful poetry Pax.

This piece is one of my favorite of you! It sounds very real, little hopeful and little gloomy in the same time...I love the photo too. You have ability to make so exact "portrait" of your soul and emotions, in special moments. Sometimes I feel like these "moments" are without beginning or end, but they are much inside you. You are longing, needing to feel loved, valued by someone, who you knew before...It`s very human emotion, we all need love. Just in your need of love I discover a little sadness...and something unreachable.

Pax, your heart just shines out to me - to others, in yet another sadness of words. However you describe your emotions in such lovely phrasing, you somehow inspire. And, that means you have more than enough strength to ignore the 'toxicity' and 'negativity' all around you and guide self and admirers - and you have many, to look to the sky. Wonderful writing, my friend.

This made me feel. I don't feel often anymore, when I read. But this made me feel.

I like the line, "My heart longs to be somewhere away from the toxicity of people’s opinion." Nice imagery in this line. Well, yeah.. the people have even spoiled the world by the thread of their own toxicity ... they`ve turned the dreams into nightmares to get emerged with the incense of love. This poem`s very cool to read since the beginning to an end, no matter what, may be, your thoughts (deep thoughts) have made the write full of strengths. keep writing!

A beautiful and haunting write dear poet and brother. The message you deliver is of hope and strength of will midst ashen fields of negativity and people's wrong judgments. What matters is that you are alive in the spirit and truth of your world. Your arms can reach for love and compassion. Beyond your shadows of doubt, no doubt we are climbing the unreachable in self struggles and difficult personas. Excellent as always..:).........

You have done a very good job of putting grey into this poem; not just the picture and the font, but your melancholy words.
