My Eternal Peace

One of my works that I’m most proud of.

 

 

The morrow’s Sun asks,

For whom does the orphaned son weep…………..

 

 

I stand before a path,

A path I dare not cross,

A path that once held meaning,

One that held my light,

 

 

I turn away,

Laughing at the fools who crossed it,

Engrossed in my mind I am,

Therein I cried, therein I despaired,

 

 

The wind ruffles my hair…….

 

 

It senses me before I can comprehend it,

This feeling that I’ve never known before,

My laughter dies down,

My tears within dry up,

 

 

I turn back towards the path,

Dreading it,

Yet wanting it,

And so I stared,

 

 

And so I beheld,

 

 

A Maiden,

Covered in darkness,

Enchanting, inviting,

Yet fear it instilled,

 

 

I cannot move!

I cannot breathe!

I cannot think!

But my heart beats………

 

 

The darkness drops its veil,

And quickly it is enclosed again,

A glimpse I saw,

And this I walked,

 

 

I lurched towards her,

Falling and standing,

Crawling and running,

But never once I blinked,

 

 

The path is unforgiving,

It cuts and eats away at me,

But no longer have I cared,

I care, for nothing now,

 

 

I can run no longer,

My legs give away if I stand,

My bloodied arms can no longer rise,

My bruised soul can no longer heal,

 

 

I fall down,

I cannot move,

I have lost,

I have died,

 

 

I feel nothing for death, Let It come!

I feel nothing for the harsh earth underneath me, Let it burn!

I feel nothing for my flowing blood, Let it run dry!

I feel only my loss,

 

 

The ground finally cools,

My blood stops to flow,

This is the end I believe,

It is time……….

 

 

Heavens shall not allow a pawn,

To achieve its victory,

When it seeks it,

At the cost of itself,

 

 

Alas, I did not understand,

I did not care for the path,

And thus the path has punished me,

It hath forsaken me,

 

 

I feel Death’s hands close upon me,

I clench my eyes,

I dread his cold touch,

I dread this finality,

 

 

A tear falls……..

 

 

The hand comes down,

It caresses me,

It comforts me,

It forgives me,

 

 

I speak so,

“Death, you are a folly,

Does it please you?

To remind me of the failure that I made my life of?”

 

 

The hand presses down,

I hear a voice thus extol,

“I am not Death,

I am that what you sought”

 

 

My eyes fly open,

I finally breathe in,

I push against the ground,

I fall and fall again until I stand,

 

 

The darkness surrounds me,

It encloses me and the Maiden,

Nay nay,

My Maiden,

 

 

I see her now,

Beautiful beyond imagination,

A beauty that I only dreamed of late,

That can no longer be compared,

 

 

Gleaming eyes of grace,

Which see right through me,

A pleasure derived,

That cannot be described,

 

 

The light glows from her skin,

It radiates the darkness around me,

It lightens my soul of its burden

My light,

 

 

I begin to ask her who she is,

But I silence myself,

For I already know the answer,

I had sought it for far long,

 

 

I beckon to her,

I open my arms,

She steps forward,

And so I finally embrace her,

My Eternal Peace.

 

 

The morrow’s moon answered,

He weeps for what he might not have………….
