I am new here and I must say -- a little bit intimidated by everything I have read. You are all very very good. I enjoyed reading the posts.

Oblivion

I already found oblivion
in muted shades of blue
dark purple around the outside
within the depths of you
I discovered it by accident
quite sometime ago
as I tiptoed so softly
around the worn edges of your soul
I thought of trying to mend it
as I fingered where it was torn
Wounds so far under I couldn't reach
without causing terrible scars
I stepped back to let you breath
and within your eyes I saw myself
A mirror image who could not speak
or even define herself
Chimera, woman, child
all seeking to be one
as she who was I shivered
beneath the frozen rays of the sun
What we sought we could not name
it was a thing, not even a place
I did not realize that it was only me
until I reached out to touch her face
My hands passed through mist
drawing me deeper into the unseen
The realm that I knew was always there
even though told it could not be
It wrapped me in darkness
cushioned me so well
It whispered to me of secrets
that I may never tell
It sang me songs in silence
extracting small pieces of life
Stealing a way my memories
like dawn does the velvet night
Sweet oblivion come to me
wash away the fear
Lay with me for eternity
or at least while we are here
I don't care about the world
and what is bound to happen next
I simply want peace
without the finality of death
