Best Simoriah Hairomis Poems

+ Fav Poet


when you're fast asleep
and thoughts creep into your head
and flood your brain until it weeps
and your mind descends dark and deep
into a land of dead end worlds
where the only way out
is the way you came in
but the road is way too steep
and your feet are made of lead
and every smile is just pretend
and nothing is to be believed
and you're going off the deep end
bleeding rivers of hatred
into a pool of shallow deceit
where every thought is colored red
and every shade of black completes
every nightmare ever conceived
born of blood-stained dreams within dreams
where that person you used to be
is falling into skies of silent screams
and contemplating death
all the while wishing
to be alive again

    Look the beginning is waiting to start Simiorioh the past will have no hold at all..' death is a path all must take , yet it is not for us to choose when..! the good you seek is 'out there' in order to partake of it we must not fall prey to the despair of the world, as some are misled into taking their own life's: instead you can take up a new life today..' pleased to have read this poem..Joe))

    Hi Simoriah, powerful imagery especially the "rivers of hatred into pools of shallow deceit". It presents us with the idea of so much energy being exerted and wasted on a "shallow" situation, but that these emotion totally overtake our senses.
