A Silent Ending - Poem by Dean Gowler

Hi there, how’s you doing, long time no see
Its been a while since I was in touch
Too busy taking the black spray from my minds 3rd eye
Oh to the days when you fired the imagination
Showed me the way to conquer fear and shyness
Helped to fill the empty cavern inside
Wrapped your arms around me like a beautiful blanket
An intentional glow you gave, like a burning sun in the distance
Made me feel alive, where once fear ruled the waves
We stood on the shoulders of giants, pointing down to the world
But then the worm turned, dug us deep beneath mother earth
Things changed as lights started to dim, and you became my prison guard
Wanting me just for you, isolated in a waterless fish tank
All the promises you made to keep me safe and warm
We’re pulsating lies, tragic trickery, and unclean food for the soul
Now I’m your vacuum cleaner, your sucker
All fucked up and I’m a fucker
Why bring hell to those you say you love?
You brought a bucket full of hatred to the so called party
But now as I loosen your grip, each finger bent……then a snap
The lights that once dimmed to a nothing, slowly start too flicker oh so brightly
As I loosen the grip around my neck
And I breathe I tell you this
You’re fake, a liar, a charlatan, a slivering soul sucking enemy of the masses
Now I fear no more as separation moves towards a sun kissed sanctuary
Far from where you want me to be in Isolation Street
Freedom from the oppressor of the mind and body
Freedom to be who I shall be
