Day 15 Nano Poblano :The Chink of Light.

Look for the chink in the wall of water,

Look for that light that will make the dark alter.

Walk the long bridge that goes into the dark close your ears to sound of screams,

They are only your fears released into the nightmare of your dreams.

Walk bare foot along the bridge unless you slip,

Tread slowly don’t rush you don’t want to trip.

There are no railings to save you if you fall

No safety net to save you, no nothing at all.

Look towards the chink of light

It is far away and deep into the night.

Steadily is the only way to proceed

One step at a time sadly there is no use for speed.

Don’t look up and don’t look down

Keep your eyes ahead  don’t you dare turn round.

Lest you slip, lest you fall no need too scream no need to call

There is no help for you if you fall.

grief

Welcome to my world

I have tried so hard to fight that wall

To cross the bridge and smash it all.

The further I go forward the further in to the distance it retreats

I have run, and I have crept and still the pattern repeats.

I try as I might, I try as I may

But pain is the same by night and by day.

I must keep going I cannot give in,

To reach the chink of light even if my chances are thin.

I can’t go round it I cannot pass through

There seems no way over. Help me, what am I to do?

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

    I had to read this several times because the imagery is on several levels. Look for the chink in the wall of water – what an arresting opening. The struggle to see through the torrent is a fabulous one. It took me a while to see it as an optimistic verse – I must keep going I cannot give in – it’s your life and your have to struggle for it. The fact there is always the chink if only you can keep going – Help Me what am I to do? But you know – I must keep going I cannot give in. Excellent.

      Thank you Geoff I should of guessed you would read it right … on the first level when I started to write it years back it was a plea for help. But it has grown in to an empowered poem ( apologies for using the word empowered, I hate it but it is what it is ! ) I am glad you like it or at least understand it. xx

    Good poem! Consequently, this is why I am not an acrobat. Heh.
