Chasing Light

entry picture

Speak louder so they can't hear the silence instead,
turmoils and echos around my rigorous head,
keeping all the truths that we want to destroy
but we ought to protect,
see... I am nothing but a builder
but tonight I dreamt I was
an architect.

Momentum holds and it wouldn't rest,
dissolved in same old liquid mess,
vibrating body around its perfect chest
somehow.. still trying to disconnect,
see... I was always just a builder
but tonight I dreamt I was
an architect.

Speak louder so we can defend
our tones as much as ourselves,
words, flames, desires - we should always protect,
see... I will always stay a builder
but tonight..
I dreamt I was an architect.

_________________________________________________

Hold your breath now, inhale,
there are no more buildings in our way,
myths are gone, imperfect and pale,
no more bricks that we can melt,
and I lay here as a builder, introspect,
still somewhere in the distance, far away,
we all dream
to be the architect..

Oh the politeness of this site. If this were an american site, we'd be ripping each others throats out over a misplaced hyphen. Seriously though, "I am nothing but a builder/but tonight I dreamt I was
an architect." is absolutely gorgeous in its humility.

Everlasting gaze of the divine self-destructive boat on the horizon!

Hey, wait a minute. I get a picture of a boat and there ain't no boat! What the heck! Honestly though, i really enjoy your poem, particularly "no more bricks we can melt". You know what sort of temperature needs to be achieved to melt brick? Neither do I. But it's hot I assure you. Everyone wishes to be god. Wonderful final conceit. Kudos!

A piece of poetry crying out to be performed if ever I've read one, brilliant.
