Mirrors to Eternity

by cantchangeme   Feb 12, 2014

I hear the wind still
And it tells of open spaces
Darkness deceives my heart
The cheater of hope

Scraping the dirt from my face
I fear the silent pause
Everlasting in its love, divine
As complete as lust

Counting the breaths
A tell-tale calendar of torment
Conveyed in whispers
A genre specific trope

Mud spews forth as language
The sentinel watches
To see the fall of the veil
An eclipse of trust

Dressed in my finest
A suit fit for midnight
Mirrors to eternity
Speckled with dust

    The opening of this piece got my attention instantly and the piece never let me down. The third and final stanzas were my favorites out of this piece - they just leave an impression that is phenomenal in its darkness. I enjoyed the word choice and how it didnt have to be that strong to give this piece an impact unlike most. The way your voice is expressed here is completely unlike any I have found here yet.

    At first this piece struck me speachless and all I wanted to say was how extraordinary it is. But I figured it deserved more. The imagery is stunning and all in all it is wonderfully penned.
