Every Moment Comes To An End

by cantchangeme   Jul 19, 2010

Today the world is broken
Bleeding hearts bled all but dry
A silent figure sits down next to me
And we watch fire touch the sky

Roots break to dust and crumble
They try to find solace beneath our skin
We block out the screams of machinery
Whilst the roots burrow in

The Sun, eclipsed by apathy
Burns the heaven from your smile
As metal replaces anatomy
The final truths break our denial

Realisation by Television
The silent figure takes the stage
The final light within the darkness
Joins in the final fade

Calmness fills the forests
The oceans take a breath
There's a sigh from all there ever was
As my last heartbeat fills my chest

Today the world is broken
So I'll kiss you, my silent friend
And we'll watch the clocks come to a stop
As every moment comes to an end

    I really enjoyed this. The topic (well at least what I THINK you're talking about) is one which is very hard to relay without it sounding annoying or non-poetic however you've done a marvelous job of avoiding both of those. I like all your metaphors and I have an affinity for the line 'fire touch the sky'. I REALLY enjoyed that one. Over all you've done an exceptional job and I'm blown away by it. 5/5, truly amazing.

    I thought this was really well done for the most part. The flow was really good and the imagery was powerful. The only thing I would change or critique is the fact that your 4th and 5th stanzas don't rhyme while theo thers do. I'm not sure if most people will notice this but it does make a difference. I hope you'll change it.... so I'll still give a 5.5
