my struggle with silence

Surrender

Like a vampire facing execution

I am tied to my fate

And placed in the sun

To melt away

For the flood of my rage

To wash my ashes away

 

I stand here alone

On the brink of existence

Waiting patiently

For my departed spirit

That crawled away

To return with the key

To unlock the vortex

That will lead me home

And release me

From this soulful moan

ATONEMENT

I inclined my head to read thoughts I wrote

On a star, which I should have breathed life on

But the sun had sent it off to die

The day dragged itself on

Stretching seconds until they felt like minutes

Countering every effort of redemption.

When again I saw familiar winks in the sky

I looked up and called on the distant light

To give back that which I left behind

It said it was a newly born star

That the one I sought was its older sister

Which the night will never bring back

My rage wore off; I turned to depart

I searched my brain for thoughts, ripe but unhatched

As I saw a rising sun breaching darkness

For remorse is a play in which I long not to cast
