THE WOUNDED SAPPHIRE

image

Rakishly anticipating the thorns of hope
I stand at the edge of faith flummoxed
Even in the thinnest shadows of my dreams
It seems I bear not a song of preparation

Feeding from an empty pot that lies around
This section of my view rapidly enforces pain
Alternating between the glory of a free fall
At a point where the circus of life curses

An arcade of plummeting triumph skips vain
Escaping the fortunate event of ecstasy
I stay rapping to a series of pointless rhymes
Creating in me the mindset of a mad goddess

Enslaved to a threat that bears shame
A picnic in the arboretum of love I pray for
Wrapped in words of faith praying to bloom
My destiny is a star I see above my weakness

Squinting through the crossed horizon
Betting spirits are fighting for my sake
A slow steady voice speaks to me
Bearing a sigh of relief for the wounded sapphire

  1. Powerful! Speechless…
    “Enslaved to a threat that bears shame
    A picnic in the arboretum of love I pray for
    Wrapped in words of faith praying to bloom
    My destiny is a star I see above my weakness” – Great mixed metaphors!
