A Poem by Sylvia Faff

Trapped between realities 
I lay dormant
I lay waiting for prophecies 
Of love and pain
That would one day take me
 Never to refrain 

Trapped between two worlds
Between four dark pulsating walls  
And a bottomless ceiling 
I see a voice 
That brings greater feeling 
So loving soothing and full of poise 

Trapped between two worlds 
In an icy prison 
Where the silk walls stain red 
And the fabric blows in the wind 
ever changing 

Trapped in purgatory 
Between two hells 
Nothing in my life is real
It's just one big forgery 

I have worn more masks
Than lines in a book of broken sonnets 
Every line held each more strongly 
Now I dip into a bottomless flask 
And let it all flow,

All of it....
It was never true 
Never constant 
Skew after skew 
Draw and re-drew 

But i lay here on the edge 
My emotions uncontrollable
never tame 
Waiting to jump
And to cease all this pain 

It never mattered 
Yesterday, today, tomorrow 
And what never followed 
You were never mine 
And it fills me with feelings of gore
It feels like my insides turn to brine 

Never to come back 
Never to feel again 
But it's ok
We wont ever be together 
And my name will brush off 
Like a gust of wind 
I didn't matter. 

Cover you eyes 
Clench your fist 
Forget about everything
Flooded with mist
Hold your breath 
Feel the cold 
The anger in your blood
The boil of your soul

"I have worn more masks

This is a really winner, its dark but it has a depth to it. Not just dark for the sake of being dark. Flows nice and is a pleasure to read. Wonderful work!

I especially like the depth of this work, the description of feeling in the abstract and the subtle suggestions. Very nicely done.

Yet another great poem from you my friend. How you come up with this I will never know you seem to have the same creative spark within you that all great writers have. Its true that society is trapped between two worlds, but with this poem it is almost as if you have two people etched within, two figures standing side by side each taking their mark from the author. But what the reader doesnt know is that it all came from one person, you. Keep Writing.

Loved it. I really concentrated hard, and I believe this is one of those poems which after you've finished reading it, you will try to condense it and tell yourself if you've really understood it at all.

"The anger in your blood/ The boil of your soul"

Absolute genius. Everyone goes through times where they feel trapped. This poem, like your others, evokes strong emotion and relates the reader to modern issues. Very well written!
