A Soul Drowned

Like a dim star miles away
Never seen by the eye that lingers around it,
Like a whisper of wind to the hazy clouds above
Whose echo is lost in the noisy thunder prevailing,
Like the translucent, caramel rays of dawn
That never reach the dark pathless woods,
A soul dies away, undiscovered.

Like words full of meaning beyond their existence
Yet never to the heart do they reach,
Like tears that fall from the eyes of Sorrow
But are seen by none other than the Eye of Ignorance,
Like the smiles that shine truly from the heart
Though are always left in the depths of gloom to perish,
A soul dies away, aimlessly.

Like a thought full of aim and purpose
That never saw the light of day,
Like a consciousness too alive to forget
Yet becomes unconsciousness without being remembered,
Like an image too erect in the magic of the Mind
Yet shatters without the recognizance of Reality,
A soul dies away, unrecognized.

Like a hope with promise but never fulfilled,
Like a moment of triumph but never accomplished.
Like a heart full of love but never beats,
Like a dream always alive but never born,
And like a life with aspects but at a loss of purpose,
A soul dies away, with all its shine covered by the Veil of Death

Poem of the Day

poet Algernon Charles Swinburne

I hid my heart in a nest of roses,
Out of the sun's way, hidden apart;
In a softer bed than the soft white snow's is,
Under the roses I hid my heart.
