POETRY FRIDAY LINE 47: DARK DAY
DARK DAY!
The whole last night became too heavy
That half a word could not be uttered
Joy refused to come in the morning
Leaving the spirit of my man in continuous mourning
Sorrow clued to my soul
My ears became adamant to the gospel of hope
A motivational speaker looked elsewhere for comfort
This day left in my heart holes
I wished that the day came into the night
‘Cause I was saddened and disheartened
But the clock became a snail that couldn’t count a second
Elongating my joylessness and disheartedness
I wished I could disappear from the surface of the earth
And surface again when the trumpet of everlasting peace sounds
I wished the cock had crowed before the denial time
To wake me from my unconsciousness
I wished I could remote my ears
To listen to only the things I would want to hear
And my eyes, I wished I could control them
To see only the things my heart would thank them for seeing
I didn’t finish wishing for the irony of the last night
Which a sweet friend had withdrawn from the race
Yet, another discouraging wind blew at noon
“A drop of my own blood has dropped completely to the ground.”
I sat still where I was
Not wishing to move again
The concept of inertia tied together my two legs
And the reality of life began to crystalize in my head
I wished I could curse the night for the sadness
And scold the day for the sorrow
It became heavier than the night
I was even more heartbroken and shattered
Everything was altered
Nature subjected to life
And the black that never appeared in rainbow
Took over it and covered the earth
The day became utterly black
Then I seemed a happy man again
‘Cause I thought it was a mere dream
Knowing not that the day was actually dark
Many things broke my heart again and again
The friend that wrestled but never won
The beloved that opted to stand but never balanced
And the tears of the coming generation left unguided
I lacked words I could use to summon life
And the moral to question the choice of nature
The tears of missing you all flooded like the ocean
The joy of meeting again became absolutely unimaginable
Rest on my lovely ones
I also remember you all who went before now
Even my thirteen biologicals deep down
I’m left with nothing but to keep saying the “Bye” each day of my life.
