The Fallen Poet

(The Fallen Poet)

Shadows, fall from the east
Winter show, white meadows,
Compelling words lost, in a silent world
Beautiful, Bloomingdale is how it goes
Apocalyp-so, my very own limbo
I was alone in a field of corpses-
A field of men, women and broken pens, 
Images of angels fallen to their knees

A pace of space, where--
The sun became a wasted disease
The more I prayed the worse I felt,
Lord, I came before you- broken from head to toe

Heaven sees through, the secret inside
Lost I may be, yet you see
Offended me, I no longer sing
I wait till all is asleep
My ink is dry, a broken poet, with nowhere to go
Lost in the shadows of snow, frozen like ice
A sheet of paper, with no meaning, no words

My friends, my comrades, how easily one forgets

Like a game of chess, I panicked
Made all the right and wrong moves
I lost my way, staggered across
Love comes and love goes
My heart weaker than, weak
I don't know how I survived before, 
After turning the other cheek
I was no longer whole, forsaken myself endlessly 
I was lost, could not even count on myself

Guidance, I ignored no one believed what's become of me
Secretly, I stood in my old footsteps after falling down

At times end, I found nothing could put me back where I belong
It's time to get back on offense,
Walk through the new doors God reopened to my life


(A Poet Destroyer Collaboration)

    Hello dear SKAT. Hope you're having a wonderful holiday season. We are blessed to have you and P. D. here on soup. We all are subject to walking the graves. With lingering thoughts that nobody saves. A mystery of emptied minds. A lost conclusion no one finds. We just keep plinking at the keys. Riding waves of poetic seas. Peace. :)

    After the fall comes the journey back up. I've fallen a couple dozen times in my 60 year life. This poem expresses the pain, misery and heartache so well. Now let the healing flourish my friends. Life is to be lived! Yourself and PD are so talented. Both were the main reason I chose to write here ...Super 7

    I think many of us have felt like fallen and broken poets lately. Especially after the loss of a few good friends here on The Soup... This was a very moving and expressive write, and collaboration. It was great to read from you and Linda, again. You've been missed... I'm sending warm hugs to you both :)
