So the songs still sing sweetly

by Widdershins

Age Group: Adult

So the songs still sing sweetly
Though Orpheus weeps
The keen-eyed wraiths walk through all boundaries
Walls mean nothing, song means naught
Though those songs still sing sweetly...
Prometheus is still chained, I see
I know, ‘cause I can feel the hurt...
Or is this melancholy my own?
Can it be... for happiness wallows freshly
Imprinting soft and hard alike, mercilessly
And for its diligence I am glad...
Why then, so sad...?
Is this what has been wrought and worked for, I can’t believe that
All this I’ve done... so why does it still hurt? It aches the same
The loss of so many Other things, can it be outweighed............. I wish
Will all those Other superiors be swayed
If I dare be honest, can they win that trust, can they convince me enough?
Will they be pushed off their stools in betrayal by the gentle wind of news, that pass my lips
When they assured me of their firm hold, their deeply planted roots of belief
I would be telling no more sweet things, hopes, or desires
Will it provoke more destruction, shall I seal my lips?
Only the hard truth this time, the unavoidable break of silence
The one that could make me stumble on the shaky bridges
If I stop to steady myself, will I be pushed?
The punishment that keeps no record, nor does it have to give reasons
How far do the boundaries extend?
And I would be a falling star that no one dares to catch... if I fall...
(Plunge into the forgotten depths... if I fall...)
A lost gleam in hopeful eyes, a promise now despised
And refused
Have I become such?
Am I falling already...
There are things that this happiness cannot always touch
Though I try to let them in, I do
Sometimes a window, an opportunity blooms... but this Well
Is so very deep, and so sensitive to light and sound
The soft murmurs and confessions... I wish that they
Could save me from that death,
The one that my own hands seem to constantly spell out... can I go on, if
The worst case becomes reality?
Like somehow it always has
Will it continue?
Trial and error, dictating and losing the games
(Can you see that, I rule them, but I have lost again, and again, and again...)
The prepared black and white spaces, but the pieces are missing all the same
Can anything save it... can this? ...
If I can choose how this hope dies, then let it be in the name of love, says I...
If I still have that right...
What would happen, would the decision quicken
Will I decide something I don’t want – no... that
Is not the worry... I worry that I shall begin not for my own sake
Though it is something that touches me deeply,
But my speculations are consumed before I express them
Can those stones be moved by my voice alone?
Because they have been proven to be so flimsy in build
Translucent and so fragile, my connections to them all
Will I ever be heard! Without veils that I have to push through
And can’t? I just seem to fail... but why can’t I!
I want to return to the world I love so... I always do, ever will
But I also want it to save me...
And this is what frightens me so very much,
Because I know they will never do so...

Author's Notes: Ok, it's not as bad as it seems. Written on the last day of school... er... I was kind of... angry at my literature teacher? o_o I had been doing so well and she gave me a lousy grade; hence the literary references...
The "happiness wallows freshly" is *moist eyes* just around when me and my first love were really in the depth of being in love...
