Silence, a dark inscribed, silence, a tyrannical void.

Dreams entwined,
Dreams throughout false silence,
Silence, a dark inscribed,
Silence, a tyrannical void,
Void of fierce gasp,
Void of reddened wounds,
Wounds that starve under snow,
Wounds around weeping crisp frost,
Frost over the leaves
Frost upon pure caverns,
Caverns of the mind like a breeze,
Caverns by the blue delphiniums like crystal,
Crystal resists the madness that turns the winter wind; a handful of frost.
Crystal blooms over angry memories
Memories to formulate,
Memories to avoid;
Avoid silence
Avoid speaking
Speaking the way of the world
Speaking heart in purity of the mind,
Mind alone, sleeping away,
Mind alone, interlude seared
Seared away on cob-webbed shores
Seared away on mournful stars
Stars I’d never speak to again,
Stars with winds, sweetly entwined,
Entwined by one breath,
Entwined by one surrender
Surrender in the illusion,
Surrender in the cobbled dream,
Dream in the after-divine fated—(I will leave you a hyacinth on the nightstand; a window is locked).
Dream alive a first life,
Life in the burial of light
Life in the tassels of half origin,
Origin of the mind
Origin of the wind
Wind above the cabbages
Wind above the bellflowers
Bellflowers lay aside adjoined in lovers hands,
Bellflowers married in the nestled desert womb
Womb in the origin,
Womb of life,
Life low-growing in the winter wind
Life above the sleepy black hills,
Hills that are plotted between you and I
Hills that are covered by the redemption of light,
Light covers the sand-dunes at night
Light covers the hours in which we are born.
Born.
Night.

    I love the consistent repetition in this, and the fact that nothing else is predictable or consistent. Excellent write!

    How on earth did you get such a perfectly executed flow with the double repetition? I could never pull that one off, amazing ❤ I love the descriptions, the imagery, everything- it kind of shows the connectedness of life and how everything intertwines together somehow. Really beautiful piece ❤

      I followed the Blitz poetic form. That’s how. My secret revealed! 😂
      Joking aside, I’m not really sure. I was kind of afraid how it would turn out since I’m not the biggest fan of using poetic forms.
      Oh, don’t say that, I think you can pull this off. It’s very fun when you get into the rhythm of it.
      But I thank you so much for your kind comment. I appreciate your feedback!
