Lost in Laments....
Silence beckons me
Stillness absolves my every thought
Darkness engulfs me like an endless sea,
I feel my soul - lifeless and taut.
Follow my eyes; they lead nowhere
Nothing opaque seems to strike my glance
No I’m not stoned, nor sick - I swear
I better not ask myself, ‘is this all a trance?’
Thoughts throng my skull like birds caged
Wrecking my every nerve and every vein
I strive to set them free: but raged
For my every attempt ends in vain.
My fingers quiver as I write
Longing to fold themselves in prayer
With all my strength, I mouth ‘at the end of the tunnel there’s light’
I am my very own soothsayer.
‘Breathe!’ my mind bellows beneath
I obey; a surge of calmness takes over,
The tempest subdued but not done with
With effort, I finally ease my soul and let it hover.
