Being and reality

Like a black hole
I extol no light
Futility  
my tabloid
dissolving bright
into a
world pool
of void.
My ears are
deaf
my eyes are
blind
striving beyond
serendipity
a measure of
human kind.

And from a black hole
created it, my soul.

Sy
My poor little brain cells can't always reach the depths of your thoughts. This has a sad tone to it. I enjoy seeing you experimenting with various rhyme schemes. I don't know that I could handle this one, though. You seem to do it with ease

I was here and read it. I hate to say it passed me over too, but it did. It does sound sad, but you have a fantastic flow to it all. I've read it a few times now, and am not really grasping the full meaning, sorry.

Before this poem goes to sleep I just wanted to say thank you for the comment. *L*

Your imagery here...makes me think of space (the outer kind) and also that commatose place in sleep, where nothing can harm us.

Great imagery.

Enjoyed this soulful extolling, Seymour. There is sometimes seems a universe between being and reality...  Chin up, dearie.
