Saga of the Last Support


Strangers have shared our stories…
Through directionless words and distant rain
And, every time I come back to you, my pain
I know not what binds us…love or hate…

Times have gone by…as I knew they would…
Yet death’s a luxury I can’t afford…
And, you seek shelter in my arms now…
While, you robbed me of mine

The black graveyard rose keeps calling
A distant song keeps ringing in my head…
Restless thoughts and a calm face…
Torn apart, yet I remain…

I run away…I run far…
Escaping emotions and barricading hurt…
I run hard and win…win…win some more…
But, still inside I stand alone…

And, I finally yield to the call…
Of the dark side of the moon
While rain has forsaken me
I await…I know not what…but I wait…

A smile. Innocence. Vulnerability. Fear.
And, a scary present seeks to bridge a cruel past...
And, you succumb, your last support stands strong
But, what if I was weak…someday….?

You have found your last support.
Be happy,
Be free
for this precious find.
Somewhere, you know, there stands a soul
that bleeds
and dries
in a fruitless search.
For death's a luxury you can't afford
And man is lonely even in the crowd
Strength will come through time and tide
Let the rains scorn at you, my friend, in vain

She stoops to conquer, the hapless cheek
She bends her spine for stability
She does not know the lessons of fate
Let the bliss last till knowledge dawns

"I run hard and win…win…win some more…
But, still inside I stand alone…" There are instances in life when you come across a person's creation and say "this is SO you!" I wanna say that for these lines...its beauty that only you can entrust words with....You're divine with verses...love it...keep writing
