It Was In The Days - Poem by Pete Zaesar Galula

It was, in the days, the sun purloining
the spotlight
putrescent leaves detaching themselves
falling, riding
with the wind hankering to carry them

It was, in the days the aurora borealis flickering
the midday sky
sullen air overwhelming the dreary day
calling, emancipating
this enslaved heart of heavenly lacerations

It was, in the days, i walked a thousand miles
towards the dead end
under the full moon of pristine nights
the mind gainsaying
what this fragile heart was screaming

It was, in the days, when smiles were but, cries
in frail voices
the expeditious sound reverberating in the corners
of this soul that snaps in silence
in silence, in silence, there's no rejection

It was, in the days, i scud forever in dreams
in deep slumber
of prodigious visions and impossible schemes
infirmity of imagination
in this scraggy world of foolish addiction

It was, in the days, i was surrendering
the beating of my heart
to the spirit of the wind
that hankers to carry it for all time
and i'm falling, riding
with the waves, as the stars slowly fall down
piercing my heart
and it was, the beginning of the end
It was, the end of days
