MYSTIC CALLING


By the mist of the mystic moon
My soul is drawn to cryptic rune.
The voice of Night engulfs the cries
Of Hope cast upon darkened skies.

Lo, lure of love whispers my name,
Where mesmerized, where without shame...
I walk a blind man towards the ledge
To call her bluff, nay, seal my pledge!

A prism glowing by the cloud
Of rainbow white donned to a shroud.
A veil of light that steals all sight
Calls for the sacrifice tonight.

Whimsical winds enhance the plea,
In chance Romance might dance for me.
By every sorrow wrongly wrung
About my neck the curse been hung.

By swollen boasts left to languish
In generic self-sought anguish.
Who left there would yet improvise
To please the lust upon her eyes.

As voiceless words encircle me
In call to forespent reverie.
Who left there could yet satiate
This burning Midnight Magistrate?

Dare I dream envision how,
By bead of sweat formed to my brow?
Can this need be hers, yet be mine?
Why does it seem I pine to pine?

Breaking every conceptive rule,
To walk her line, again the fool;
Or spread my wings, flying yet bold
To touch that which I ne'er could hold.

Michael Anderson

*sigh* I know the feeling Michael, wonderfully written. To act the fool for brief pleasure? more difficult a question than expected.

Michael~
The ancient Germantic Runes displayed
in the Third Aett symbolize transition.

You are in transition, my friend.
This is a good thing.  
Fine 'kenning' my friend.

Transition, whilst subconsciously improving yourself or becomin a better man.  It is a hard road at times, but at the end the treasures are worth the struggle.
Wonderful, mystical piece my friend.  Anything mystical is a winner with me!!  

 There is only one corner of the universe you can be certain of improving, and that's your own self...

A superb poem of rhyme and inner rhyming and repetition of sound - very lyrical and pleasant. Well written in every way
A true work of art

"In swollen boast left to languish
By generic self-sought anguish."-- wow, Michael, I loved those lines.  Exellent, anything mystical is a winner with me too!

serenity - glad I got a smile out of you - I've been worried about you.  

Mistik - It feels so good - how can you say no, eh?

Marge, transition, indeed.

Isis, 'tis a tough road but i know will be well worth it when the travails are behind me.

Elizabeth, a humbling comment, sincerest thanks.

Krista, I know you can relate to those lines, truly.  How are you doing, girl?  Email me.

Thank you all for the kind replies.

Come walk this line of love with me...
All hurt behind us, soon you'll see...

Wrap your arms around the bidding forever-
To choose this path, all pain is severed...

Come walk this line of love with me...

Loved the poem babe...



 Open arms can be the most fragile in the world...

There are no words to accurately describe how good this poem is -- All I can say is that I can feel it in the depths of my very soul...
