there is a tear
in the fabric of your reason
in dark recesses of a tired soul

a profile of pathos
pumping through a wounded heart

disabled by folly
and loss of reason and control

your thoughts are shattered glass
your voice bleeding into solemn words

your dreams are haunted castles
surrounded by misty mountains
encircled by thunderous herds
roaring through the deepest caverns

through a valley arranged
with fruitless ravines

you guard your impulses with dire recourse
and rarely ever look up to the open sky

remaining buried
in a den of incompatible opinions
neglecting to watch your back
or safeguard your soul

because you believe you know it all

but you do not know
not to stumble
on your own fettered footprints

This reads as if written by an ancient prophet. I believe we can all take heed. Wonderful!

Love ya!

We have all been disabled by folly at some point in our lives. What remains important is how quickly we are able to learn from the experience and move ahead without being devastated. Good work Jude I enjoyed this rendering. May peace and love be always with you. Jon Michael

I kept finding myself saying out loud "that's amazing" as I stumbled up to the final stanza. Descriptions are perfect mind pictures that feel starkly prophetic.

I agree with everyone ... One of your best, Jude!

Marvelous poetry.

Hey Jude,
This is by far one of your very best poems that you have written. Anyone can relate to what you are saying.
I love the last stanza, so telling...
Peace light and love

One of your very best Jude, and that is saying a hell of a lot. Your words, your lines, your meaning, all converged within me and I found myself walking and talking and hearing what was being say. "fruitless ravines" What a WoW! two words. And cannot overlook the last three lines as something I believe we all do from time to time. I loved this poem, Poet.
