Musings From My Soul

The Closing Bell

with 7 comments

The mind gazed at the sky,
Both barren, blue and dry,
Not even a cloud out high,
Or a thought crossing by.

Been through such a time?
Eerily silent as a broken chime,
And the night in her hours prime
Weaving magic with her acts mime.

Just when the prologue was ’bout to end,
And the purity was ’bout to transcend,
A gust of wind had the feathers ruffled,
And, the act was enveloped in noises muffled.

The rough winds hissed in from the north,
And    dragged     strange     fears    forth
Like men concealed in the Trojan horse,
Unlocked the gates for emotions coarse

The soul wedged in the night yelled.
I,  like  a  stunned  soldier,  beheld
The rummage began taking its toll
As despair massacred the timid soul

With  the  epilogue  still  to  play,
And the actress distraught in the fray,
The waning moon escorted her through,
As she hid her face,  her discoloured hue.

*

The war was done.
I know not who won,
Who seized the stage
Emptiness or rage.

  4. “the soul wedged in the night yelled”

    Wow – how well that describes those wee hours when the mind is stuck in terrible thoughts or depression and can’t find the way out. This poem is full of wonderful images (i.e. the trojan horse) and the bell shape works. Marvellous work!

  5. Wow, this was wonderful. I loved how you likened the action to a book’s components. The rhythm of the poem was wonderful. Excellently done.

  6. Wow, simply amazing!

    “The war was done.
    I know not who won,
    Who seized the stage
    Emptiness or rage.”

    Those lines were the best! I also liked the reference to the Trojan Horse. Very well written piece!
