AS I LAY DIEING~


AWARDS BY JINGLE AND WORDWAND ... thnx alot guys ... here
(for poets rally)



AS I LAY DIEING~
As i lay dieing
Four feet under the ground..
trying to grasp a piece of breadth
My hands shivering
searching for a clue
for some lost meanings

As i lay dieing
Four feet under the ground
All i could find is darkness
see is darkness
feel is darkness
and all i could think of
is the sinful night
when i agreed to be devil's bride
he casted an evil spell
instantly with him in love i fell
Not realizing that i was just a prey
caught by his sinister sight

As i lay dieing
four feet under the ground
madly in love with him
A love so true
In my heart i knew
My fairytale it was meant to be
but i knew nothing of
his devilish desires
and without thinking
i stepped into the fire
fire big enough to
burn me whole
engulf even deepest of my desire
My dreams my final destination
were supposed to be
Not this graveyard
where i lay dieing
four feet under the ground
searching what all this
was meant to be
trying to figure out
my feelings ...
what i lost and what i gained..
but all i find is
this strange emptiness
this darkness
AS i lay dieing
four feet under the ground

Using four feet under the ground was a really good touch. I like the various messages that you have meticulously embedded in this poem. We never realize what our undoings were until it is too late. The moment truth is mostly the moment that opens our eyes to all the truths that we had shrouded ourselves from. Hmm.. I could speak at length analyzing the lines, but I think I shouldn't do that. Let me keep the lines within me and ponder for a while. Yes, that is what I am going to do. A really nice piece that I thoroughly enjoyed reading and visualizing.

Have a wonderful day.

Sounds like an all-encompassing relationship; alas not one laid in gold. Powerful images. Teensy critique; I would try and break up the last stanza a bit to give the poem a better visual flow. I love the opening poem to your blog by the way. Amazing entry to YOU.

Bryan J. Bailey said...

the words flow and you have awesome context. But what really struck me was how the actual layout of the words lined up. art inside of art.
