Hanging Trees' Lullaby/Blindly Faithless

Hanging Trees' Lullaby/Blindly Faithless

A Poem by R.J Calzonetti (SinisterPotatoe)

I felt these poems went together, so I put them side by side, like fallen lovers.


Blindly Faithless

I was born blind; like everyone else 

Incognito as the words dripped soundlessly from my eyes 

I cried silence 

I heard nothing but the wind 

And felt only the chill down my spine 

Like a roadkill of the divine 

Crawling over the surface

I could only ever scratch  

Not yet waterlogged by fear

Hanging Trees’ Lullaby

On strands of hate

Reaching for angel feathers

At the end of my rope

Hanging by a thread

I finally learned to fly

Like a puppet on string

Umm... that 1st picture coincidentally symbolizes Indian flag. If you got that on Pinterest I know the artist. So I'm certain it's actually that. I love the poem with that. It sounds so pretty.😊 And for the last one as per my expectations I found your regular style.

For those who wonder why I have a silly username, I've been using this name because I find it funny. Potatoes are never really that sinister. The e on the end of potato is because I'm a potato with to.. more..
