Black Oxygen

Black Oxygen

A Poem by Black_Oxygen

Black Oxygen

 

Knowing what is coming by what has been
To inhale you returns the truth from mystery
Holding my breath for your fine Black Oxygen
And a future paved by the lessons from history

 

When decisions are bad and my vision is blurry
When I lay foundations for pain and humiliation
If I'm slow to get back into your arms in a hurry
I will suffocate from Black Oxygen deprivation

 

It continually reveals how fundamental you are
A support that looks, moves, and sounds like me
When I need help, I look to you as the guiding star
You are the wind in my sail that is endless and free

 

History proves that I'm danger whenever I lose your scent
Dizziness makes me forget how everyone who looks good;


Isn't

 

I reject spice of variety to possess the Black Oxygen brew
It is not that I am anti-anyone, I am just so intensely pro;


You

 

Handed down to me from the words of the drum
Through you comes the nectar of our native fruit
The powerful knowledge from where we all come
Only you can fathom the deepest parts of my root

 

So, if you notice me seeking destructive choices
When disastrous consequences are all I'll receive
If I am not heeding the warnings of ancient voices
I need your Black Oxygen...because I can't breathe

I couldnt' quite understand what you mean. It is complicated sure enough.

The opening lines were confusing enough and raising curosity too as to read further:

Knowing what is coming by what has been
To inhale you returns the truth from mystery
Holding my breath for your fine Black Oxygen
And a future paved by the lessons from history

Good write. I would be looking forward to read your more works.

Beautifully written. It could be a song. Hope to see more capitivating imagery from you.
