Phasing out of Form

Post any poetry here. It's just too hard to define "inspired" in this context, so we will settle for that which inspires.

Phasing out of Form

Post by overmind » Sat Mar 29, 2014 3:29 am

Ageless oceans, ageless night,
Whirling from the depths unseen.
I saw you struggle to be,
A moment of liberty.

I see your essence – full of stars –
Energy of the moonlit air.
Too bad you long to be erased,
I could watch you from anywhere.

Timeless morning, timeless sea,
Drawn down by the unbound dawn.
You are the sole purity,
The lone being I can see.

I feel you presence – full of warmth –
Fermenting in the morning air.
Your desire to be left alone
Is clearly what I call despair.

Endless pattern, endless form,
Brought forth from the dawn and dusk.
I see you fixed on reverse,
And I know not what is worse.

I know your existence – veiled worth –
Virtues founded in hidden sky.
You believed you could disappear,
But here again is my reply.

This poem moved me. I dunno why but I felt like crying but checked myself!

Did you write it yourself?

dear me... I remember reading this a while back Arthur, and meant to come back and ask some questions but then forgot... It is truly beautiful in a sorrowful kind of way. Could you explain what is behind it? Does it speak of greater universe reality or is it part of the epic and a character's reflection? As always you allow me to think a little deeper...stretch my brain a little with your writings. This is so appreciated. :D
Love,
Sandy

I don't remember the specifics, but it was written to the tune of "Perfection?", from Guilt Machine, which was one of Arjen Lucassen's projects.
