Perditio.

by Solus   Dec 31, 2010


Drifting....

No judgement, no disgust. Just...love? A friend, perhaps. A touchstone...no, something much more. So deep and gentle, an understanding mind. Yet......

Repose....

A place for tears to fall, a companion in the dark. The wellspring of warmer dreams and obstinate laughter. I feel...safe? No, but almost. So, why....

Ruin....

The ugliness, I am now alone with it. A mirrior holds only the weakness....or the truth? What cimmerian force would take that solace? I.....

Lost....

Did he die in my darkness....his small and tender light snuffed out by these demons? The void, it fills with more suffering. My heart has ceased...not to beat, but to thaw. Cold.....

To my dear friend, I will never forget you.

    OH! MY! GOD!
    This is wonderful! Beautiful saddness, grief, beautiful darknesss. I just love the way you reflect how you feel without saying it by words, but by rflecting it through expressions and images.

    the way you decided to organize the word choice is just VERY smart of you.
    I was really really impressed by:

    Drifting...

    reposee...I mean the way you lined them in a way to related with the words before, yet to flow in such an amazing manner.

    This is so so beautiful oh how i wish I could nominate this fantastic work!

    like Waw! How deep, such a philosophy !
    sadness, depression....almost hopeless

    as if so helpless and lost, unable to accept this loss, not even to understand the reason behind losing him...

    It sounds like you lost a best friend. I'm so sorry--i hope you can still find some warmth somewhere.
