Returning

Returning

A Poem by Perdition

I sit and peer 

A new pulse

A new stab 

A new haunting sincerity, 


Desirably free

As fanged as it groans from ferality 

 

I dawn its taste and death

I gaze its sea made terror by what comes from live's inherent gulf

Yet with ease and pleasing wealth 

 

Such simplicities in sweet keeping

Greater the hills that no soul can climb nor return bearing gold

Nor mortals seek merits that,

Once earned forever must lay still....burning 

Days are made to war with greater solitude

 

Let me make this clear

 

Live

 

Give not one selfish thought to consequence

Give not a sword to worry nor to thus kindly king tipped fear

Do not regret

Rather live and love as though Now keeps your truth in poisonous scope


Laugh into your sun’s setting trial

Gaze the hillsides and peaks in desire but keep earnest, earning your final breath immortal-


Wish the song that settles such a sleep as lips spawned out stillness keep

Earn your precious life with day and you have earned the title that Now’s only wish is your day had come sooner-


Leave only this dust of wish

Our gazing toward a sun from what must 

One day return….

Many people in life are ruled by fear of the unknown, fear of change, etc. I tried to live my life, being open to all the possibilities, so I really love your message. I love how you SHOW instead of tell, becuz people who live in a box do not know what it looks like or feels like to get outside their box. I believe writing must lure a reader to consider a new approach (not preaching) & I love how you coax with irresistible ideas & imagery (((HUGS))) Fondly, Margie

Well, this is one for the libraries. You're clearly a talented writer; perhaps even someone I would potential emulate. "Give not a sword to worry nor to thus kindly king tipped fear,"my goodness this is a wonderful line.

i really love children...they are so brutally honest...and there is that feral streak in them to do what comes naturally....then they age as we all do...and we start hesitating rather than just gazing at the sun and letting it gaze on us as it will...we start living life too carefully....being wary because we know that lies are out there...and predators are out there...we get smarter and less likely to live with reckless abandon..
Love this...the feral children become tamed...not always a good thing.

in Your first verse (I believe the last word should be frailty), You put is simply and deeply as it is, Life with all its ups and downs, past and future, and from there You took us in Your profound observation of what life and living truly are, satisfaction is the word, and in Your lines I feel it deep aside the beautiful tranquility, and through meditation as I can sense from Your first verse too, we can achieve that satisfaction and tranquility. something calm and peaceful from You Mr. Joe, How are You BTW? ;)
