Drifting Blindness

Every night I lie upon this soft

cloud-like bed,

floating away to many forgotten

worlds of whispering flowing


words that only he spoke to

rekindle my fading glow.

Many combine into dreams,

dreams that only I behold

within my lustful mind.

My eyes glitter in the twilight

of his sweet smile,

although reality itself is not

the same.

Many tender vibes penetrate

my mind like a dagger slashing

through a thin layer of my delicate

skin that once was stained by

his gentle hands.

Sadly blindness has shattered

my memory of his angelic face,

leaving my soul to drift away

into a forgotten world,

a world of compassion and faith.

    You ended this on such an upbeat note..... it was a beautiful ride that took a dark turn and left the reader with a the good feeling of compassion. I would love to know the inspiration behind this.

    touching write...If you have any interest in Celtic or Druid lore I was wondering if you'd write a verse for my new contest on Shamanic beliefs? I hope you will. Let me know in soup mail. Light & Love
