Try to Imagine Nothing

Try to Imagine Nothing

A Poem by Gaige

Chilled, chided like a child's lover
Caught between fantasy and insurrection
Monster of man yet to become
Power his weakness, leave him so
Fallen to depths only God can know

Soul relinquished to a beggar's fate
Stolen harbinger, caught in the devil's ways
Desperate to become an embodiment of hate
Fragile paradox, a pure man now a sinner's slave
Make your amends, for the dead know their place

Deeds of doubters used to claim paradise
Violent purging, a means to an unreachable end
Complete in silence, all halos inevitably come down
More than just a criminal, a victim of fate's tragic trend

Callow hearted in awaiting a day to die
Fallen lovers unseeing, unburned, unsung
Man's lonely, last ashes lost in a gust of wind
Crosses we bear to which our nooses are hung
Last hymn meant to chastise with words daunting and cruel
It was just a joke my friend, you simply played the fool

There’s a strange emptiness to this piece that I can’t put my finger on. The diction is there, the form is there, the message is there…but something is missing. No matter how many times I read it, the whole thing comes off as cold and distant. Maybe it’s the tone, I’m not sure.
