this is an old style that I am trying to break away from so I am posting it as a reminder to not write like this
No need to comment

Ringlets of worn flesh burn
from shackles born of obstruction
chains play lonely chimes
as metal and rock clash
in bitter battle
It is the light captured
restrained from existence
exiled from the radiance
it once knew

Shredded now is the fabric
of freedom
to shout
even to whisper
what so wants to be heard

Dare it breech the unspoken
the forbidden sin
of truth

The wax melts
the wick shortens
but the flame is eternal
as it transmutes
stagnate energy
into the heat
of deprived

It wanders
followed on tracks of destiny
purpose is clouded in the mists of
yet it beckons for release
before the executioner sharpens
his last blade

Let this be the epitaph
When the breath of life
blows out the last flicker
before it is light once more
free to express what is within
and will always be"

Old maybe, but very moving according to the reviews below, so why not just add to the collection with new styles and keep this one that works so well. I am in agreement with those below...wonderful.

I also just read your bio and found it very interesting as well. Love the attitude. Anyway, nice to be reading you. Trish

Dear Walter,

"Dare it breech the unspoken
the forbidden sin
of truth"

Dare it? This is a superb write. As for this being a reminder not to write like this, has the change already occured "within" is it in the process? or are you hoping? I only say that, because I believe very often, we write "in the moment" of our emotions :) Thank you for sharing this superb poem.

warm hugs

I feel a sense of despair along with a powerful release of emotions. Not so sure you should give up this style. It is thought provoking with much imagery.
