The Refusal of the Senses

The Refusal of the Senses

A Poem by fiery-san
"

Perfection... it's what you've wanted right? Or not.

"

The perfection you claim

I refuse such a thing

 

Grains of fine white sand

They slip through my fingers

Still warm from the sun

I shun and forget

 

I close my eyes

I prefer the infinity darkness provides

Away from the rainbow filled azure skies

As the white cumulus clouds float above

 

Stop.

The air

So much freedom and fragrance

I turn away and hold my breath

 

Your delicacies

Ambrosia, food for the gods

An honor only a fool would deny

Allow me to be the fool.

 

The strings of the golden harp

They release a spell binding melody

A siren’s call, so melodiously sweet

Hand me the wax and I shall be Odysseus

 

I refuse you.

A world of perfection.

It is nothing

A mere dream of fabrication

 

I choose imperfection.

The insanity we call reality.

"Your delicacies

You are amazing. I enjoy your poetry. You write with a high level of skill. I get motivated to write by reading your poetry and story. The lines above are amazing. The poem open the door to questions to ponder upon. The goal of a writer. Thank you for the amazing poetry.

This poem is a bit artsy, and you did a good job at the description part, it was easy to picture most of the stuff.
'I refuse you.
A world of perfection.
It is nothing
A mere dream of fabrication' - well written :)

No problem! :)
Wow, just wow, seriously. I love this. 'the insanity we call reality', that's like the line of the decade. Preferring the darkness to the sun is a concept I grasp. It's a dark read with so many undertones, really first rate. 100/100
