Apocryphal obstruction

Apocryphal obstruction

A Poem by Ana B.

This subtle weight of darkness

Has made me an honest liar

With morbid yet gentle sharpness

I step towards the waiting fire.

 

Cleansed; reborn; I don’t really know…

Anything but what it once was…

The blood orchid with its crimson glow

Again has put my world on pause.

 

It swims and swims  - the ever present ennui

While passion is emotionally dismissed.

In this ocean of joy, I simply cannot be

Not while the cold sun mockingly insists…

Hi Ana I was pleasantly surprised to find you here tonight. This seems a sorrowful tale of what it means to realize truth

Thank you Tate.
' It swims and swims - the ever present ennui
While passion is emotionally dismissed. '

Your use of words is more than substantial.. there's no doubt the emotions, the power and what i see as convoluted doubts about.. how they are for you, what they do to you. 'An honest liar' ?
Hidden truths, perhaps?

Image. and the imagery

I turn myself inside out into a bloody flower blooming for no good reason other than a myriad of absurd desires and fantasies that are so beautiful at first on the surface and then... the music stops and i wake up to a beautiful garden of things I cannot touch. That was a terrible review, I know. You wrote a lovely poem though.

Oh dear Anna, how I always enjoy your word choice. And your first quatrain was fire, I loved it because I see myself in it.
Stay blessed!
