I fell today and shattered,
no longer could i walk in the midst
of the juggernaut that moved relentlessly.
No more, no more could i keep pace.
I slipped and i vanished in a cloud of dust
on the well trodden-on tracks
To left of me, to right of me
my brothers waited, waited for me to be initiated
to forever become a silent screaming spectator to
the march of the juggernaut.
The hell's fire burned my skin away and
bathed my soul in flames. I shut my eyes and shed
a tear, a tear of infinite sorrow and agony
A tear we shed while we live in anticipation of the reaper
and now a tear that was shed in memory of
a life never meant to be concieved.
The tear fell to the ground rising a puff of dust.
A still moment passed... and the Heavens parted.
The rain of salvation drenched me
washing away every pain, every sorrow, every sin
Through the rain's fog i saw divinity
who whispered to me 'God is in the rain'
The next minute i was hurled through space
and awoke with my heart pounding...in my bed
The memories faded in my mind as i lay still and unmoving
unable to think or speak.
All i could think of was the cryptic message i heard
Silently i repeated the message to myself,
God is in the rain, God is in the rain and then, it struck me
I reeled and fell to my knees and sobbed
Goddess in the rain...
A few things. If you dont like the poem, go ahead and sling mud on it. If you ask questions, i may not answer. Do not ask me to "explain the meaning" or somesuch. I will simply ignore such requests. I do not believe in laying down one single meaning for a poem. I think a poem tells a different story to each person. Also, please do not tell me that this is broken prose. I can already see that and i do not care. It is just a veiled description of thoughts and feelings. I do hope you enjoy it. I am open to criticism. If i seem like a snob laying down ground rules, you havent been around here long enough. Anyways, ta.
"While the truncheon may be used in lieu of conversation, words will always retain their power. Words offer the means to meaning, and for those who will listen, the enunciation of truth."
