Sign Above The Basement Wall (Screaming Joy And Laughing Pain) - Poem by Marcel Tourdot

Oh my dear friend please take me home
I feel so lost so all alone
Please send my soul back to the start.
Back to the place that stole my heart.

Oh lover’s liars leave me now
Please do not cast false wants
I once did know your love as true
But now I know you’re love is false.

The stars that shine on either side hang oh so high above.
Their light is felt when darkness falls and when the morning comes.
I pray they always know to fill the weak the hopeless and the lost
With homeward love and dreams of all the things we’d sacrifice at any cost.

And hang above the basement window high upon the wall.
while all the while they call to us and prophesize our fall.
It is at home we start to feel the need to cultivate our dreams.
Because the perceived light does shine with growing rays and brilliant beams.

And all the while you seem to think and hope to try and see.
“Home is the starting place of love and (all of our misguided) dreams.”
Lost and misdirected and at fates mercy still feels greater in value to me.
Than screams of joy and laughs of pain and all the thing cannot be.
