Never Ending

Never Ending

A Poem by Perdition

Whatever claims your fate or head or sinful notion
Fluttering in from space or some other plastic temple
Whatever breaks that midnight stare
Trailing in dispersant shadows,

The face of it hanging on the wall
Sways a crooked hat that runs to some cherry crypt ‘morn

Whatever blushing star,
Fragrant sound, or distant hush
Spell binds your reason
Like an untouched ovary against the galaxy

Whatever was will never fade
Inviting a seed of perception, a pain, a want
To walk
Along all that has deserted

Whatever slit this world into two and yours within
Be it shackled or winged
Spoke its wounds into your ear
And aged like sweet knowing mountain air
Relieving the story from its weight
Obsessing the obsession
Only now
What is out there
Is within

We, you, she or it absorbs life as it hums past day to moment.

You quote such minor-major thoughts, '.. blushing star.. fragrant sound, or distant hush.. ' knowing the brain and heart absorbs them even a breath or gasp. Tis said we're every person we've ever met, every place ever been, every emotion ever felt.. ' your finely expressed words seem to sit longside.

This was really quite beautiful. I was drawn to it because I play guitar but I didn't listen to the video. I never do that. I like the writing to speak to me on its own merit. And this just had so many wonderful lines and is so uniquely crafted that I thought it complete without pictures or sound. Without the video, I was hearing certain strains of blues guitar playing in my head. I had a dear friend who once said to me, "You know the biggest problem with life, Fabian? It doesn't come with background music like the movies." And I said, That's funny. I've always felt the biggest problem with life was that it DID come with background music but there are so few willing or able to hear it. Everything is a song to me. So now, after completing my review of your poem, maybe I'll go give Ana a listen. :) I admire your word choices. They make me wonder what it's like inside your head. Great stuff.
