In the depths of our heart
There you will find me
Lost as can be upon the sea of silence.
Sitting there with a burden
But never to share.
I lost connection with morality
Which could only keep me further apart
From the light in which I still do see.
In this madness, this silence,
That which engulfs to the core of the center
I feel lost and rigid in my desire;
To come back from these lonely,
Unlivable depths of my nightmares.
These unseemly wonders that have caught my
Attention and captured the innovations
Of unspeakable silence.
Never have I traveled so far out to sea
Only to realize that I have drowned in my own
Incapability to resurface.
But apart from the rest I still walk
Frigidly remorse of how to go on.
Seeing Shadowed eyes and blinded by the desire to defrag
My inner life
Silenced by the sound of my own screaming.
And in these depths
Far out in the sea
I'm sullen, too laid to rest.
So I guess…
Just let me be.
Stuck in the depths of eternity,
Sailing upon this lonely sea of silence.
*I actually wrote this not that many years ago. This poem still captures my attention. Initially when I was in college a few years back I took a creative writing course and a Literature course. We read a lot of poems from famous authors and it made me wonder: how do these people take something so simple and make it into such a complex poem? The idea always fascinated me. I'm not now nor have I ever been miraculous at writing poems but the idea of taking something and forming it into a vulnerable state of words - one which anyone can interpret their own way - truly fascinated me. Which is where this poem comes from.
It comes from the depths of my mind. How I feel. What I see. What I know.
But you can take it and see it as anything you want. That's why I worded it the way I did - to get something.
Feel free to review my loves and let me know your thoughts.
