A Denial

Walking down the roads of fading destiny..
set aside by a forsaken baggage of emotions
only to be destined unforgiven
and condemned to a no return

Memories mock at the present ruins of a beautified demeanor
Hollow inside, creeping death
Shallow containment of an incorrigible fate
Redemption kneeling at the mercy of oblivion
only to witness a sarcastic echo
of a god stupefying its ignorance
of a fate playing its menace

4 years down that road to nowhere
Settling down only to be devastated by unsettling thoughts
Prowl for peace
And prayers for happiness
A disguised hunt
At myself
Bruised and maimed
by the whiplash of solitude
I stay inside those walls
that i built around myself
only to suffocate in my own cries
only to die! !

I look at the black sky..
like painted ebony of my heart
wishing for a day when I’ll be gone...
from the strangers of my reflection
to my world
to my place...
to my people! !

waiting for a day that never comes
when I shall return
when the devoid shall be granted! ! !
When that denial will be burnt! !

Poem of the Day

poet John Clare

I love to see the old heath's withered brake
Mingle its crimpled leaves with furze and ling,
While the old heron from the lonely lake
Starts slow and flaps its melancholy wing,
