The End

The End short poem

Photo by cerulean5000


Much can be said
But we speak in hushed tones
Curt with our responses
Hiding behind the wall of vulnerability

We hold our breaths in anticipation
Who will be the first to crack ?
Unsightly in the walls of protection that enclose us
Barbed wire strangling our very being

Silenced so long
Goodbyes are forgotten
Platitudes are delayed

We can only stare
As if our walls are made of glass
We feel close
Pressing palms to each other
Connecting to the illusion of a coupling

But there is no couple here
Only broken promises
Forever’s  never experienced
An end before there was a beginning
The book the author forgot to finish

A sigh is heard
A release
We no longer wish to be bound
An agreement
We turn away from the glass wall
We are freed

I see a place with starless skies. I see a dark smooth world endlessly a float in the black, its star long since blinked out. Covered with small closely spaced geodesic domes. Geodesic domes all interconnected, all with conduits leading

The End

It happens so often, that i forget the coffin. Forget the existence of the end, when I’ll lay engraved beneath the land. Forget that one day i’ll be all alone, all that I’ve known, will be unknown At some moments

End Of Days

End Of Days short poem

The wind swept trees stand tall like Hercules with all his strength, for here in this place lies the dead and dying of mankind. Here in this turmoil we also see God. Within the desert the winds are stirring again
