Crimson Chamber

Contributed by distant_star on Tuesday, 20th October 2015 @ 06:23:51 PM in AEST
Topic: LovePoetry


She's there
But she's not there
Underneath the shaded glass facade that throws a prism light on all who come to pursue her

A cacophony of all humanity around her
Like so much noisy traffic bleating restless as night falls
Leaving nothing but a trace of regret and hopeless lament that another day has passed with desperate thirst unquenched

And in that crimson chamber
Beyond the reach of knaves and fools
A fire burns with unbridled passion
Longing for redemption from its prison tomb

One by one they come
Seeking that which can never be theirs
She's beyond the realm of words
She's above the light of reason

What confident fools came before me, thinking their measure was right?
And fell like wounded animals straying miles from the hunt all alone
Lost forever as they perished in agony no one even knowing of their fate

Yet even knowing this, I pursue as if there is no trap
Fearless as if I know no failure
Driven by a beacon from that chamber
That promises a home for the subject of its light
A place for the strong and faithful that can never be revealed but for the fateful moment when the union is complete.

Poetry is much like a great photo, a single "moment in time" capturing many feelings and emotions. Yet, they are very alive; creating stirrings within the readers who form visual "pictures" of the expressed emotions within the Poem. ©
