Warmth and coruscating light
Bewitches and beguiles
The stranger that crosses these lands
a stranger comes to a land which attracts and amuses him
A simulacrum etched into his memory
It taunts him to return to this haven
Once and more again
something engraved in his memory, which always taunts him to return
The reminiscence of the pellucid waters
Call upon his very being to make the journey
Endure the arduous trials
That lead to the Zion in his mind
the remainant of clear water(something from his past may be) encourages him to make great efforts,to win the zion of his dreams
Ah, but in his rapacity the stranger
Doth forget the edict
That Zion was to be touched but once
for a single moment
but his greed makes him forget the edict(law-this might be some heavenly law)
Lo he arrived at his dream but
Alas what he met with
My enemies be spared from, i pray.
so when he reaches his dreams(that must be zion) all he cud find is..destruction which is beyond explaination.. even ur enemies shud be spared from such
The light had vanished, been vanquished
Leaving behind engulfing darkness
The waters turned to blood before his sight
His Zion echoed with dying screams filled with agony
White pain ripping his soul apart
the light which used to amuse him in this land..turned into darkness
clear water into blood... zion filled with screams(its just description of destructiion)
The stranger knelt down and sobbed
A voice tore through the black earth and spake
"The edict was for you to witness and follow
Now you suffer for your selfish indulgence
The screams you hear are the ones before you
You will die a slow death now
And join your brethren..die, i, the king have spoken"
so when stranger is crying for his loss... he cud hear a voice saying.. u have lost all,just cause of ur greed..its ur selfishness to not to follow edict..now u will suffer like hell..n u will joint the berthren..
as 'this is my kingdom'
thats all what i cud get from your poem...
a stranger...coming to the new land which amuses him... he tries to win over that land n zion for his greed.. ... but all he cud find is self destruction...as his selfish attitude dont allow him to listen and follow the edict....
husshhhhh.... that was tough...
now decephering that... i dont mind im right or wrong to find meaning of your poem.. but u sured teached me....words out of world...
i wud like to know...basic idea behind this poem..or this was just an attempt...to keep us all guessing for nothing....
