The Fountain

The Fountain

A Poem by Herzeleid

The Fountain has mysterious powers... do you dare enter is pool?


Beyond the trees,
beyond the night.
Beyond my fears,
beneath the moonlight.
What is this curious
object that is so forsaken?
What power lies in it,
that I can awaken?
In the cover of night,
I flee to the place
where lies the fountain,
with essence I embrace.
The water flows gently
down to the pool,
as if inviting me over,
with water so cool.
I, furtively, walk in
and let the water steep
my body into a timeless
and entrancing sleep.
I feel myself being submerged,
but I cannot awaken.
I choke and sputter
as away I am taken.
Deep in the pool,
I reach a depth unheard
and when looking at the surface,
one would think absurd.
In my mind,
images are shown,
of far off places,
and things unknown.
The fountain fades away,
and so does the pool.
I see mad dictators
and their iron fisted rule.
I see light hearted places,
with no troubles at all.
Disregard for civilization,
shall be their downfall.
I see the future,
I see that past.
Races that will spread,
and kingdoms that won't last.
I see the end of the world
and by own death.
It passes as the visions end
and I take my last breath.

I wrote this almost 4 years ago, so I don't really plan on changing it much. Just would like to hear what people think.
