~In The Beginning There Was Control~


Tell me what do you see?
From the audience, stare at the screen
Mesmerized in the lines you shall follow
Blink one time and your gone with tomorrow

Deep in darkness, covered in light
Close your eyes, listen closely to the terrors of night
Whispers mostly for the voices that guide

You're here with me now, but, you have closed eyes
Who told you to rest those eyes?
The minds trickery provides a reason as to why

No need to panic
The author of fear reminds you
The lines erase as you dare to rewind
Back on the screen you overlook the audience
As you watch them view your life

You whisper to patience as reason chimes in
Puzzled as perplexing this is
You shout and they jump, entertained by their distractions
This scenes about over as is our interaction

The movie ends when they stop dreaming
Projecting images your mind tries to comprehend

They live while you sleep
They dream while you're waiting

Your avatar holds the source code within the matrix of this dark city
The forbidden fruit was created for you to taste the thought
Swallowing the realization which gave birth to the initiation
And the right to overthrow a system called control

When you wake up they stop dreaming
Freedom is the child within the rebellion of ones soul

    Beautiful poem. Wonderful lines...
    When you wake up they stop dreaming
    Freedom is the child within the rebellion of ones soul....
    Very true said, when we play our character, others are audiences but vice versa too...loved reading it. (Report) Reply

    It is said we have two separate lives...the one we live....and the one that others see and discuss. Again you give us much to think about, stirring images that tell of triumph and failure, all the same. We are heavy in the pursuit of evolution. PEACE (Report) Reply

    I agree with Noreen, I was just about to say those were my favorite lol. But since she said those I'll tell you my other favorites:

    Back on the screen you overlook the audience
    As you watch them view your life

    and...

    They live while you sleep
    They dream while you're waiting

    excellent work~ (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet Robert William Service

Three times I had the lust to kill,
To clutch a throat so young and fair,
And squeeze with all my might until
No breath of being lingered there.
Three times I drove the demon out,
