ashen fields

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.

I love Greek mythology. Ashen Fields, if I remember correctly, is where the greatest souls go. Nevertheless, this a heart felt poem about loss and hope, kinda like the Church's song "Field of Mars," which is actually a graveyeard yet the narrator tries to find love within that place. Awesome write.

Mmmmm... The last stanza clearly reflects the root cause of the poetic voice's deep sadness. Artistic font color suit the theme very well.
