The Window Slams Shut
By Davin Casey

Here,
Lost in your vision,
I’ve found
Solace in the clutches of a beast,
Where I’ll discover myself.
A murging of the conscience and the soul,
One becomes whole,
All becomes new.
But passion survives in every hue.

In a blink,
Momentarily eternal,
You were naked
With the stars on the horizon,
Purple and orange.
Reality became.
The heaven I once knew
Split right in two,
And I crossed the threshold
To discover peace,
True peace,
For the first and only time.
Twas torture.

A tear falls from my eye,
A scream escapes my lips,
I shit.
The Watchers only love me more.
But you, my dear,
You are my mortality.
Before I transcend,
Your chain tightens.
The anchor holds steadfast
To your everlasting beauty.
I gasp, and grasp,
But the window slams shut.

I start at the sound.

I wake the dormant beast,
On which my house was built,
And he slips through my fingers,
Like a whisper through my throat;
Like smoke.
He flies through skies on wings you made
Of feathers, leather, and paste.
He mocks me with his song.

“Tra la la,
You silly ghost,
You thought you had an eye.
La dee da,
I find it most
Humorous that you’d try.

Humpty dum,
She had you fooled,
You dumb old doppelganger.
Tum tee tum,
The teeth she pulled
To make you even stranger.

Fiddle dee dee,
I haven’t seen
A love like that since long ago.
Haha, hehe!
So cute, my queen,
How very far you would go.

At last, at last,
You’ve seen the light.
And now you sleep again.”

You silly ghost, she had you fooled.
You silly ghost, she had you fooled.
And now you sleep again.



I honestly don't think this one turned out long enough... But, we'll see.

Fabulous! I'm happy to hear that it warranted being read twice.
Thank you much for the comment, Moonflower. :D

Heh, Awe, eh? Well that's perfectly fine with me. Sadly, I don't know the track! Ha ha, So I'm afraid to say the poem wasn't meant to sync with it in anyway. Glad you got a flow with it though. XD
And yeah. Tis moi. :p

Ha ha, I didn't really mean for it to, but it's great that it turned out that way. Thanks for the comment. :thumbsup:
