lost within

by Elwin Shadowstrider

Age Group: Adult

lost within
steel tastes cold

only a mere moment away
tears would
no longer come
i no longer
pressure mounts
almost there
i have sat
in this incipient madness
blankly staring
at all who have
gone before
the bodies are
screams unbearable
yet this is
my inheritance
my place
my lucid insanity
a squeeze is all
and i will join
the sea of those
who cry out in pain
whose plight is no better
no worse
than mine
"Please don't, please stop
this place is not yours
nor is it mine."
a touch is all
i feel brushing away my streaked face
"Lift up your eyes,
see me for who I am."
dumbly i comply
breath taking beauty
who sheds tears
with i
"Come with me,
see what you can have again."
staring blindly, i return to the
incipient madness
that is mine
her cries were not like
those below
hers were was sorrow
of unbearable loss
my tears were no more
a hand was all
another touch
that reached through
pulling gently away
the destruction in my hand
i wanted to end
no further i begged
the steel she took
and kissed the pain
"Life is yours
come with me
away from lucid nightmares."
only if you stay with me
here nowhere
on this edge
the pistol she takes
and the kisses
she gave
lifted mine eyes
to where she flies
to where she laughed
most of all where
she loved....................

Author's Notes: This was written many years ago, when I fought the Wiccan Path, as you see, the Goddess will win eventually...... the underlying psyche here was that I saw the Mundane world as a kind of suicide, to believe in nothing, except the material world. The hair pulling and jumping about by so many I saw as hollow, unfulfilling. I wanted more, yet I almost jumped into the madness with the lot of them, the Goddess had other plans for me...............
Brightest Blessings to all!!
