Guilt and Honor

 

Guilt and Honor

 10/07/2014

17:23 hrs

And so I smiled

The knight in shining armour

Waits , somewhere in tomorrow’s unseen story

And two hands warm and gentle

Just like my mother’s touch

Would lap me up and caress

Before all that blood and gory …

 

 

I look behind

The monsters of a past dark and grim

chase a dream that I had once seen

I sigh

A race against time, I have been

running and failing each time

falling into an endless pit

in a sea of tears and grime…

 

I look up

The dark cloud twists into a grimace

A storm breathes in its womb

I fear

In the farthest horizons

A nest that sways in the unfriendly winds

a life that lie in deep slumber in its heart

Could be blown over

Washed away, wiped clean

in an imminent downpour…

 

I look within

I see his evil grin

His eyes glowering with rage

His heart thumping and his clutch waits

I flutter my wings but shackled are my feet

I realise

I must reap as I sowed

The waves I once rode

Are the tides now that cannot abate

I wail

as he grips my soul, I choke and faint…

 

But I know

A hope in its shining glory

Waits , somewhere in tomorrow’s unseen story

her two hands warm and gentle

Just like my mother’s touch

Would lap me up and never let crumble

Before all that blood and gory

 

Yes I know

The tiny rays of sunshine

through the darkness, a smile divine

would warm my heart up

let my life flood in a joy pristine

Yes I know

Within me too, lives another self

Untouched, unscathed

Who can soar up new horizons

Unbound, untrapped !
