I know the forces argue but I feel that I deserve a lift
Ready to escape this farce and merge into the sunset cliffs
I lend an ear unto the west until the wise man’s whispers cease
In search of that elusive source that hums a softly glowing peace
Withered in a land distraught with cold, materialistic things
Thus I feed myself the sadness just to satisfy my pangs
Life is not a friend to me, I long to roam without its brace
Deep into my thoughts I dig, to carry on without a face
Hymns of warm benevolence come croon into my weary ears
Crafted by an unseen choir, perfected over kinder years
To tantalize my drunken senses now that I’ve laid down my steel
Singing me a soothing hurt that seems no longer quite as real
Distant cousins roaming free, long buried in the ocean deep
I wish that I could follow them and rest where sleeping secrets keep
Ibelong to earth and sky that bows to no one in its day
Home to not a single quarrel, command, insult, or evil way
My sympathies will never jade, evasive truth I still defend
My kingdom waits for me out there; it’s worth the risks that I intend
Freedom lies in non-existence; back into the womb I fall
Maybe oneness isn’t really being anything at all….

This submersion is good. This aims surreal. I like it.

This writing contains such wonder. I had to read this one twice to get the full prospective. Greatly and well written and so unique.

I love this poem! You are very deep, and your poem comes from the heart. Your words, "withered in a land with cold, materialistic things" touched my heart. So many of us are withered in a land surrounded by material objects. Please stop into my authors den when you have a chance and review my work.

Your eloquence and flow are amazing. And you write with such depth - such meaning. I find myself reading and re-reading so as not to miss anything. The questions you pose here reveal wisdom beyond your years. You must be an "old soul." I've said it before - you're a poet with genuine, coveted talent.
