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

Pace yourself..lol. Thank you once again for the kind review ystorm.
The third stanza stands out to me the most

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

To me this speaks of being untainted by monetary earthly wants and greed. Being inspired by nature, the stars, something greater than ourselves and materialistic wants.

This whole poems speaks to me of the vastness of space and the flip side of selfish wants.

Wow, very well written. This intrigued me and well pulled me in. Love these lines here,

Awesome write...

What a gripping write! The best of us know how to surf that fine line between the Personal and the Universal. This poem is a great example of tying the two together.
