TRACING ME OUT..


I find a new fire burning
With colourful flames hitherto unseen.
I find that it is burning
With fumes soaring to skies hitherto unreached.
And my joy knows no bounds.

I find the thing burning
My mind is it!
I find the crowd cheering
My people are it!
And a gloom embraces me.

The flames flicker,
The smoke withers,
And the souls creep back into the holes,
I feel a stench of my mind
And a heap of ash remains.

I won`t see new things burning,
Nor will I search for flames thereof.
With what little is left over in me since
I have to trace a form of mine
To speak certain brutal truths to you.

    An insider's look at a funeral pyre? We could choose to look at the truths as peaceful rather than brutal.
    Intriguing poem - vivid images. (Report) Reply

    Tracing one's identity in a hostile world is a self effacing task. Even when your soul has burnt down to cinders, with what is left of you, you want to speak out the 'brutal' truths.

    This surrealist write goes over my head! ! This is too deep for me! ! (Report) Reply

Your eyes smile peace. The pasture gleams and glooms
