Stark

I am insomniac through memories, I stumble 
Hard to resist, the lure so unceasing, 
You go missing, and hope I walk with phantoms
Turn away truth, sweep off your footprints 

Live away from me, your solo nights haunted
Hunting for your sleep, feeding shadows
The stars and the lone moon thru my ghost hands
Strain to reach your skies still, spangling echoes

Ignorance tossed a poisoned knife, one morning
Caught rage in her dark hair, her sanity broken
Her facts stripped, layers away from your winters
How do you breathe now, away from us

Fly with me again, ride the winds we always do
Angels in exile don’t lose their silver wings
Wake up early tomorrow, catch the dawn for me
Cried a fallen angel, and God cried helpless too…

    That is really true, you create your own self dialogue. The other you that always saves you from hell speaks better in poetry.

    Thank you!! It really is cool to see you spending time on my work. I like this one too, it started as some bit of rambling to myself, and by the time I had finished, I was actually feeling better:) writing does that to me, i understand my thoughts better after I have scribbled them into poems..

    hey, man I just went and looked and it did not count my comment as a view!! I guess a comment does not get counted as view. View must mean only someone opened it up and whether they looked or not, it got a hit on it. Good grief, what a lame system.

    "Ignorance tossed a poisoned knife", I used to know people like this. A vehemently powerful & sadly thought-provoking piece. Fantastic job!

    Dark yet your words fly off the page. I'm glad this is the first one I have read today.
