Shadow of Proof.

Slip me a ledge to hide under
slovenly and sleepy I slide asunder
by your brilliance I ooze coolly by
slinking and a sinking back to my
subterranean cav-eat to eat fumble pie
my ugliness forces me back into thy judgement
and coerces me back into the shadow’s
………whatever my form, it surprises the norm
faithful is the light that believes in the night
methodical the darkness we see in our souls
so smooth it’s seduction, beating on our thought’s
rhythmic reduction’s that squeeze us through
the twilight tunnel of understanding
………….are we born of form?
………….or of thought?
What is our Father and who is our Mother?
………are we bastard’s of the universe?
or do we follow only our own desire’s?
…….into a lost plight of forlorn embryo’s
cast into a future, blind and some day immortal,
even in the flesh, there is a question mark
….who, what and why are we?
……and if reason exists
…….it’s form must be…..
and it’s effect…
the shadow of proof.

I’ve always just loved art and my MO, is simply to produce art that I find interesting and that satisfies my own sense of what is aesthetically pleasing, but very much enjoy sharing what I’ve done with other artist’s and the world whenever possible, this is why I joined RB and it certainly hasn’t disappointed.

    so well said . . . questioning is a part of life. the shadow of proof . . . what a line you coined here. good to read you ce, can’t help but send out a prayer before I hit add comment.

  • Hi Y, thanks for your prayer, much appreciated, just throwing it all out there tonight, I may have strayed away from my original intention’s in this one, but I enjoyed writing it anyway and that’s the main thing I think…..? thanks again. :)

    I hurt when I read this work. It starts out as if you are in the depths of a self destructive beating of the spirit. I find it hard to read. I think the mind can become tired of many things in our lives and that is when this type of false reading can flourish. I have read you in the past and there is nothing so negative about who you are. Your work changes midway as if you suddenly realize on some level that very thing and start to question thoughts you gave into momentarily. Just hope this writing is just your experiment into an emotion you were testing out. If it was then bravo. You did a fine job. Your writing is always good in my opinion.

  • I think your probably right, it’s an unfortunate part of my character that I often take the questioning of existence a bit to seriously and at time’s I just feel driven to tap out darkness in the form of writing, I think maybe I should keep these little exploration’s to myself from now on, thanks for your insight Donna, very much needed and appreciated. xox

    I like your exploration my friend, we all wonder about the same thing but seldom take a deep dive to find answers……..are there really any solid answers?

    Is God’s word the answer? I choose to think so…….

  • I believe Larry that the only “solid”, answer’s are perfectly and completely incomprehensible to us and that’s only because we have blinded our own soul’s with our own desire’s.
