Your Life

A Chapter by Octob3r Star

Your Life

There’s a boy down there

Hears all about you’re expedition

Holds close to prayer;

In hopes for days without your repetition


It’s a curse, the worst

And he, will never understand this

Adverse, rehearsed   

On knees in constant guilt, steady reminisces


It’s no lie, your life

Is what it’s all about

You’re bi, your knife

You’ve cut in crosses, in hopes to bleed it out


There’s no revolution, no solution

For the stains in your eyes

No cure, no sight

Secure enough, to guide you in your prayers tonight


There’s no peace, no feast until you get to grip

This trip, you’ll slip

In cracks you lack;

Cement to hold it back


But I’m queer; like you, with my stained blue eyes

Stuck, stalled in cells like you- with this advice

In underestimation, retaliation;

Cold high, in my beliefs tonight


So stay bright, stay light

This Night

...and let these dreams rewrite.

Floored... Exceptional Write! Stepping outside of ones self to permeate another reality you cover like DuPont the many shady colors masked in dark font that there are no Straight lines ;) and everyone's navigation to deviation. Beautifully written like the pro you are! Lyrically I'm green like the matrix!

Enjoyed this a lot, not only due to the excellent thoughts, but also due to the good way it is written, the good use of commas,the internal rhymes like bright and light, and the use of a three line verse at the end. Good thoughts, and written with technical skill, good work.

There is such a sadness to this piece, and I hesitate because I feel there can be many interpretations to the writing such as molestation, guilt/shame over sexual orientation, combination of those elements, a religious figure also perhaps that has done wrong.
The last few lines are hopeful yet, the words before lend a darkness to the ending
"So stay bright, stay light
This Night
...and let these dreams rewrite."

Well written, with much to ponder by the reader.
