Temple Illuminatus


Wandering restlessly to the ends of the earth

Dying again and again

Made whole, to be torn apart

Driven away and cast aside

Swimming against the tide

Of scorn and reprove.

In this black world,

Under the hot Godless sky,

I pray to die...

Surrounded by fallen idols!

Watched by red glowing eyes,

Preyed by darkness and nightmares

My way's full of traps and snares...

I'm the only one left behind.

I want to close my eyes,

& find a way to get into the dream

Of peace and perfection.

Where there are no judgement

No forceful conformation.

Where there is peace,

Where there is love and complete independence

Oh yes I truely mean what I wrote Rowena. You have such depth within your poem. A true whisperer of words as I call those of us that write poetry. Being one who orcestrates proses of both Light & Shadow. This piece of yours resonated so deeply within. It is poetry like this that in my opinion shows the rawest of emotion- pure in a sense. without hinderance..loved it. I hope to see more of your work!!!!!!!!!!!
