An evening in nothingness...

Have you ever felt at some time that you were lost? Floating in space with no clue as to what on Earth is going on around (or in) you. As if you were another person in your suit of skin. As if you were living a borrowed life. I've been there a couple of times, and I still visit there now and then. It is a place from where we'll never be free, but a place that offers some respite in a crazy world, nonetheless. Still, even in the midst of all this madness, something within us still fights to anchor us on Earth. A solitary candle glow.

Enjoy today's poem, and just float away to a place of sweet nothingness...

In a hidden part of a broken soul
Lays a solitary candle glow
Which has as its only goal
To mend the shattered golden bowl
To make it shine again as though
It never knew the fatal blow
That made it many pieces be
Thus making different parts of me
Dispelling any certainty
Of who I am.

no idea why this is important, but YAY! me 1st :) have no idea wat u just said, but reading it has me lost in space with the Earth spinning on w/o me. if that was your intention, good job. ...if you actually expected me to UNDERSTAND that, well its best you know now that i'm really a blonde with xs melanin :D

@ incoherent: LOL! neva meant to leave you out in the cold, darling, but hey, just pretend you're not blond for a minute, and think deeply about the words. Most times, the meanings are right there in our faces, but require just a bit more thought.

we, the travelers, can always sense and feel the depth of that around us. there is more. there is more. i guess that u know that by now.

isnt it strange that someone half a world away is feeling the same way i'm feeling right now and has put it more eloquent words than i have been able to express?

reading ur poem is dispersing the blue feeling already....

I have been feeling like this for nearly a week now. It's an odd yet comforting place to be.

Love your work.

i feel this way so often. i'm glad that there is someone else out there that understands.

Muse said...

believe me shiny, i understand perfectly what it means to be in that zone. it's a good hideaway sometimes, but just don't let it engulf you.
