Ink and silence

 A thousand lights had made me colder…

Ink and silence

With an afterglow of a firefly, with a cry of a wolf,
with feet on fiery rose petals,
with clandestine whispers, bitterly cutting the time,
I leave the fibers of fragmented words
to the anger of wounded snowflakes,
revengeful, mourning my drained voice.

I abandon the verses to the shadows,
into the hidden chambers of poetry,
I behold the lulls in the blue-eyed abyss,
forgotten fairytales and hundred absurd days,
I drown in syllables, damp with passion,
to live again the faraway love of a mermaid.

Like ravens hunting the death
in my sinking I ravage the ashes of letters,
the reflections of virgin mirrors twist my power
and I give in to the hands of creativity,
dark magic and lips of paper incubus,
only to design a new sound for every lonely heart.

And here I am, on the wings of raw scars,
one with the resistance of a blight fragrance,
feeding on the ignition of answers,
silent in the dreams with ink and angels.

    Blaga…you have outdone yourself in this one. The use of repetition, the images, I’m not sure I can find a word to describe how much I enjoyed this. You write to my love affair with words.

    Wow…there is so much in this one that I think every writer can relate to and enjoy. Sometimes it’s soooo difficult to find the subject matter…we can draw on a myriad of things, experiences, emotions, and still feel like the ink has run “dry”. I think the imagery in this one is especially strong, Blaga. :)
