Chapter Thirteen

by Nema   May 11, 2012

But tell me how to manage
With a handful of questions
hanging, like a halo around you
And you're not even half through

Wade into my thoughts and please,
Hold onto a thread; an answer in between
All those half-hearted marks
And give me a line with a full stop.

Just not the end.

Let the pages of my mind flip
as easily as reading a book,
And guide me to the page where
You'd appear like lightning

And while you'll be flying up above with freedom
I'll be sinking in below with answers I wish I never knew.

      Rabea :) thank you!
      I'm not really "preaching" anyone, I usually don't write my poems about specific people. this is just imaginary person.
      To explain the content, books inspired me to write about something related. Chapter thirteen, in a fifty-chapter novel is usually one of these chapters that still do not carry any clarifications on the characters of the novel. So it's just another vague chapter that you still need to read.
      The person in the poem is a vague character that I did not seem to understand so I compared him to a novel chapter :) and when I finally got to know him (usually the ending of the novel) I wish I never knew the truth because it was brutal (a sad ending)

      Better now? :)
