Sunset

From a coastal cliff
 
I cast off my fetters of you
 
in meaningless unseen gesture
 
 
 
whisper and word echoed unshackled
 
Harmoniously resonating
 
Against receiving sands
 
 or ravenous waves
 
 
 
Watching wind and fog 
 
desolately motionless, against
 
slow soaring skies and 
 
Low roaring ocean
 
 
 
I turned to walk
 
Then turned to stride
 
night turned darker, still 
 
and everything became
 
still. 
 
 
 
Then I swam through gravel and glass
 
until white hot anger consumed me
 
my disgraced luster burned away 
 
to blackened contrivance
 
 
 
My anguished bargaining 
 
turned to muted bitterness
 
An enduring silence that consigned me to exile
 
 
 
 
Though I forgave myself
 
I’ll never forget
 
how I lost
 
everything
 
again

I felt completely drenched in

I felt completely drenched in your unfolding emotions by the time I reached your powerful finish. This is a heavy, wonderful write. Even if the experience it took to create this is not something I would wish upon you.

Thanks

I appreciate your sentiment. I was having a bad night remembering the last few years and I wasn't feeling well. 
I made this and now I feel better. 

Thanks for reading. 


I adjust and touch up my work sometimes. 

Thanks for sticking around. Sometimes the 5:30 show is completely different from the 7:30 show

Endure. In enduring grow strong.

Great Ending

.

A image for the absolutely unretrievable. Fine lines on the art of loss. "...slow soaring skies and/Low roaring ocean" - bravo line.

Thanks

Sorry I'm away for so long. 

I rarely write because I have to be in a specific headspace. 

Thanks for sticking around. 

I am a fan, though XI is my favorite of those two.  ^_^
