Come clarity

by Espoirfailed   Jun 12, 2007


Soon it will all be night,
Because you gave the moon one bullet,
And it was always your luck for him to aim it right,
And we laugh at the manacles that try to aid this dying light.
But there were never enough obstacles,
To keep you by my side,
And I never had the intelligence
To try and make you mine.

And the preachers sing out their hypnosis
As the teachers go for coffee.
But I'm chasing you through fields of green
And just you try and stop me.

The kick was gone and you left without suspense,
Like a cold thriller novel that wasn't all that tense.
You left me on this island in a state of insularity,
And I was staring at the seabed hoping for some sort of clarity.
I'm still waiting for it to call.

I know you would have liked to have seen me fall.
But you weren't there long enough,
After all,
You were gone by the time the sunshine rose,
And through the twisted bedcovers and overpriced throws,
I thought I saw some peculiarity,
Well maybe it was last nights drink,
Impairing my vision to think,
But I like to hope you left me with
A blurry sense of clarity.
And with your whispered words, drowned with popularity,
You dared this world to move,
As you murmured, "Come Clarity."

    Yes, I see what you are saying, although I question wether you mean your words.. if the kick was gone, and he left without suspense, then it makes moving on all the easier, and yet the clarity doesn't come until you're sure that it's accepted.. I wonder if your heart is pretending that it's all ok..?? Very well written. xx

    I loved this. The imagery was awesome as was your word choice. The flow was kind of off at a few parts, but it wasn' too too serious. One thing though,

    "And I was starring at the seabed hoping for some sort of clarity."

    ^^ "starring" should be "staring"

    First off I'd like to say that this poem has a wonderful flow to it and it started off with that flow and carried it along all the way to the end of the poem. You told a fascinating story which I thought was rather interesting. The poem was well written and organized; the vocabulary you used was very wide ranged. I like how you added rhyme to it, which added to the flow. My favorite stanza where you really introduced the rhyme to the poem was the third stanza. Overall it's a wonderful poem, keep up the good work.

    Peace, Poetry & Power,

    Nick
