Magnum Opus

A themeless tale to speak of truth
On graceless, hallowed ground
Sauntered still, the ambled will
The past tensed future’s found
Drifting through the mirrored halls
I find myself still here
Harkened dreams or so it seems
The watchmen’s eye to leer

Mirages of a long-lost sea shows solace in the sun
Perpetrated by the sovereign state
So seamless it begun
Will they come?
There is but One
He stands amongst the trees
Natures child, hides its smile
Shown falsely, so too we

Fortune strides, the godless fly
To seek such tales beyond
Throw the flames your kindred soul
Baptised by sacred bond
By virtue of the mythic dove
That glides wingless across the plain
Gravitating to the source of all
The beginning of our shame

To summarise and prophesize
I leave you with such truths
That I and you and we and me
Can ponder on our youths
Though we speak with portend rhymes
Pay heed not to our speech
As if you know, “what’s there to know?”
Such treasonous beliefs.

  1. I’ve got to say that poem was very well written. I loved the overall flow and rhythm of the words, it worked really well.
    By the way, thanks for the follow 🙂 I’ll be sure to stop by often to check out more of your work, I do love to read a good poem every now and then.

  2. You have a wonderful rhythmic style. My favorite part in this poem was:

    There is but One
    He stands amongst the trees
    Natures child, hides its smile
    Shown falsely, so too we

    So fantastic!

    Mystery, knowledge, an unwanted truth.

    Keep up the good work!
