eyes of immortality

....

 

we are each unique

and the same,

concurrently,

 *

we walk the earth

in a body of flesh,

 *

sometimes we hold great joys

within us, around us,

we readily share with the world

in hopes to place a band aid 

on wounds that gush blood like

waterfalls,

 *

other times we hold sorrows

and the depths of pain to sheild

the world from what we ourselves

deny,

 

☆ 

 

and as we breathe the breath of life,

as lungs expand, so does our mind,

touching suns and moons,

 *

we merge our inner and outer worlds

to unify all of life in spirit as one,

it is what this life is,

 *

the reality of it gnaws at our desires to 

enjoy material lusts

for material riches,

and things of the ego,

 *

we try to fight it, 

change it,

and we never can,

 *

and have become helplessly fractured,

split,

divided,

shattered into small bits and pieces

of what we think we are supposed to be,

instead of what we naturally are,

earth and heavens collide 

beyond what realms our eyes can see,

 *

when we breathe,

 *

angels and demons merge

together into infinity,

 *

and too often,

we stand in the balance with eyes closed.

intense

intense with imagery and emotion. it's dark, disturbing, gloomy. i like the honesty, but wish it was more up beat and a happy ending. however, poetry isn't all light and airy, but it's not all epic and dark either. it's shades of white to black with smudged colors in between, but long as you write from your mind not just what you're told or just from your fingers, but from your mind, heart, the soul of a writer, it's part of the exploration and shades of gray.
