[ The Labyrinth of Denial ]

























Such void of hurried non-sense
   That I hath rendered merely within
How oblivious it is, yet dense
   Even cognition can't reach deep in...
For I, of it, hadn't seen such glance
   Yet kept rendering therein
Such conflict... Such paradox...
   Such self-peace lost, not given!
Lo! The shadow of my rigid existence -
   To where yesteryears seem akin -
Has forsaken it's mere matter,
   For it counts not without such sin.
 
How such shadow could conquer it's matter?
   How such matter could forsake it's mind?
For I'm no more, oh dear, a still matter!
   But a shadow still, sore and blind.
Verily, conquered my matter I have,
   My mind, is forsaken and disguiled.
For I shall learn the very difference
   The very cause to which all abide!
Between that of this vivid Existence:
   The source of pure joy: glide!
And that of a shadow that has lived a distance:
   Yet has always been denied...

Author's Note

Ahmad Alhour
This piece represents many things, most importantly my view for the my human nature and the self-judgmental state I'm now rendering in my life!

However, this poem was inspired by "Labyrinth of Dreams" song by "Nox Arcana" band. Song link: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wfUGtfpYzCM

Such conflict... Such paradox...
Such self-peace lost, not given!
Lo! The shadow of my rigid existence -
To where yesteryears seem akin -

For it counts not without such sin.

Although this isn't usually my style of reading, but hell dude!
This stuff is really heavy,
"
And that of a shadow that has lived a distance:
Yet has always been denied...
"
I mean common! That's out of this world!
Amazing simply!

All the best regards,

Thought provoking write. Denial is a self woven web that catches the weaver. Excellent piece.
