Mortality, confinement and inevitable decay; these things present us with the prospect of a dark passage of pain, leading only to oblivion. Could the Gods hate us so?
Like the sketch of twin faceted Myra Qadish above, this is a Reflection of the dark.


Vanquish Now the Gods


Hush now! Still the  warbling of thy voice!

Oh! Bitter solitary child

So long adrift upon this mortal, seething sea of rage and pain

Thy tears do but the hateful gods beguile

And all the while

They feast upon the ruined hope of  mortal man

That rises  from our dark defile




Be still! Oh bitter heart!

Taint not the erstwhile joys of long spent youth

With black and icy roiling fog of thought

Suppress thy dear bought knowledge of the night

Of feebleness and age

Kill now the carrion thoughts that wander through thy lonely mind

And rant and rave and rip and rend the barriers of thy corporeal, bloody cage.




Hush now! Still thy thoughts!

Snuff out the candle of thy soul

Feed  not the cursed gods of  night with the vapours of thy pain

Flee now! Flee the pain of mortal life

Abandon thou thy mother and thy wife

Thy father’s tears now wash away with blood

Flee far from life of anguish and of strife

Swiftly, fall upon thy knife

‘Tis all the will of those above

Who crave thee Fall! In token of thy love.

The voice in this poem seems to come from the past. It's like a mixture of some of the great poets' voices. Love the line "Kill now the carrion thoughts..." This is written in a forceful tone that commands attention. Excellent poem! I'm looking forward to more of your posts. Love and Hugs:)

You open the veneer to lifes deep pulses as it changes from one to another, if thought was not there, knowing, would we wallow in this self pity of our passing? would we not knowing though, just follow the wings of a butterfly on a wheel that goes round and round....Keith you are a Master at mixing light and spirit longing and defilement in a rainbow of words, I can see the dramatic stage for you, Wagner could have used you well wow!
