Upon The Quill of Forever

Where you live, beside the silence
In those vowels and verbs of creation
Which etch your blood with wishes

You dare not speak, or open your heart
Lest the pile driver of yourself
Wake you up

Ah ! pretty noun, pretty verse and colourful tries
To say who you are
To fall upon the echoes of an advert
And devour its meaning
Simply nothing
Save you from this constant thinking

And speak

Search the gut wrenching tongue
For something
Which cuts itself and dances itself from your being

A bland statue, edifice, monument and tomb
Still you find as you warble
Though the screaming clutch of yourself would have you
In an agony utter something else

But I; like a painted mist
Ponder on concept
And I am slapped by the intensity of sky
And in such; how could I express, I
Save to reach in every aching vein
To put these words in calligraphy
And there, see them remain, eternal

PROOF !

I said something once
And as I spoke
I wrote in eternity
And in eternity
My words
Remain

Upon The Quill of Forever
