SANCTITY


Standard given, homeward bound,
I ride that "thrice cursed" train.
Thunder riven, Death stand proud,
‘Tis but penance to pain.
Cultured art, the plastic face
Of grim Reality.
Poise the dart, I'll stay her grace,
And die for all to see.

Shadow falls, I ring the bell,
A Mystic in the Night.
Build the walls of private hell
To sanctify self plight.
Damn the few and curse the proud,
I'll plagiarize all trust.
Kiss the shrew, (no fun allowed),
Till ev'ry dream turns dust.

Woe be death but death be life,
I'll wake the Master's will.
Beauty's breath, (blood on the knife),
One touch to run me still.
Yesterday, a warm wind-song,
Soft kiss upon on the cheek.
Fall away! - I'll live, I'll long
But never again speak.

Darkness Rising, boast or fall,
Forever shall I flail.
Compromising greater call
To that none could avail.
Hold me now, if unfulfilled,
Keeper of daunted pen.
Lest I bow unto the guild
Of would be "lesser" men?

Dark, darker, darkest,
Michael, you are one amongst the very best
~~~~~~
Woe be death but death be life,
I'll wake the Master's will.
Beauty's breath, (blood on the knife),
One touch to run me still.

I am deeply moved by the intensity of your writing, my friend.

Take Care,
sudhir

 My heart is pounding, my stomach's inside out
I'm feeling kind-a-shaky, my mind is full of doubt
All I ever think about, is fearing fear itself,
Wish I could unscrew my head and put it on the shelf
Everything is twisted, everything is oh so tight,
Don't know what I'm looking at, the lights are all too bright
My brain's about to crumble, spill out on the floor
Sweep 'em up. Throw 'em away, don't want 'em anymore
Clouds race across the sky, day turns into night,
Still there are the questions, no answers in sight
Everything is twisted, everything is oh so tight,
Starin' out the window, everything is just too bright
Brain's about to crumble, spill out on the floor,
Wish I could unscrew my head, and kick it out the door...
You know I'm feeling kind-a....Strange
You know I'm feeling kind-a....Strange

i feel you in this one M,
i guess i know the answer
to my questions...
now i wish for the words to make
it be different.
i wish for a lot of things
but i never stop believing
i hope you dont either
take care my poetic prince

michael~
well i suppose this poem answered
my questions too. please never give
up my friend. your day is coming soon.
this was very moving, intensely powerful,
and i could feel the darkness and pain
with every word through every stanza.
I wish so many things for you sweetie.
I hope you find the happiness you so
deserve.
take care. remember my thoughts are with
you.

Hmmm...I salute you, Prince of Darkness, from the Damsel of Depression...I did especially like--

"Build the walls of private hell
to sanctify self plight..."

But we trudge onward, yes?  Not much else to do....Hugs my friend...

We're not worthy!  We're not worthy!

Fabulous Michael, absolutely fabulous.

Sudhir, thank you - that is truly the most I could ever wish for as a writer.

Janet & Amy, I am fine - as "ALL" is fine here between Kess and myself.  Let's face it - I just like to write dark poetry... LOL, here's a hug and a   for both of you for your concerns, though.

serenity, something distinct in this one told me you might relate to it well - glad you enjoyed.

JP, ROFL - indeed, you are worthy my friend - glad to see you hangin' around again btw.  


Thank you all for the kind replies.

Michael
