It never was

What it could

Have been,

A burnt record

With charred dreams,

Singed memories,

And scorched screams;

Can tormented people

Break away

From the grand scheme

Of things that

Are usually not

What they seem

To be?

  1. The eternal question for tortured souls… I wish I had an answer. To date, I still feel tethered to “the grand scheme of things” where nothing is what it seems and nothing I do seems to matter. You’ve really plumbed the depths of profundity here. This is a brilliant poem in both subject matter and execution. Several readings of this piece only serve to make me want to read it again. This is really, really good, Aaysid! 🙂
