A Cry In The Knight


Poem Commentary

The Fortress of Clarity has vanished ~ Resolved to an insane acceptance

A Cry In The Knight

Somehow, It all came crashing down ~
Overwhelmed by the pressure inside.
The darkness evolves as it surrounds,
Like a venomous cloud in my mind.
Insanity exists, as you all know ~
It thrives on the souls of the tortured.
It eats like acid thru flesh and bone,
And feasts on my blood of misfortune.

The walls cave upon it's presence ~
Shaking violently as it erupts.
The ceiling cracks under it's essence,
As the foundation crumbles to dust.
The songs of angels cease to exist ~
Replaced by the screams of the damned.
The door explodes from it's iron hinges,
Splintering shrapnel 'cross the land.

The mortar melts into molten lava ~
Surrounds me quick in liquid Hell fire.
The beast rises to wrap yet another,
Piece of my sanity in it's barbed wire.
Gripping my soul with it's demonic spell ~
Filling my heart with disgust and hate.
Forever Damned to this internal Hell,
Fearing the demons that lie in the wake.

The Fortress of Clarity has vanished ~
Resolved to an insane acceptance.
All resemblance of sanity - banished,
Forever chained to this Hellish existence.
My Castle - No longer my haven ~
It's memories have been washed away.
To this eternal pain I'm enslaved in,
On bended knee ~ for my soul, I pray.

Hi Ken,oh my you penned a Grand Gem.. the feelings of the heart can afflict us can they not?? we toss and turn...and do not conceive that our full potential is right there....and yet we open up the eyes to our heart and see that even as complex as things may seem amongst the storm...the rose still stands...despite all..this is utterly exceptional...follow that dream your heart stores within...Blessings...Love and Light..Tierra @}-'-,



Thanks T!! :) OMG .. I missed this comment somehow and never replied! I am so sorry .. talk about an oversight .. Damn now I need glasses .. Anyway, Thank you so much for the read and comments my friend! I really appreciate it! :) Ken

Great job. Another fantastic dark poem from the master. I really liked this one. The imagery and the flow were superb. Thanks so much for sharing it with us all...Kevin



Thanks again Kevin! This is dark - but very metaphoric - it relates to a lot of issues I'd been dealing with as of late and it is my way of venting. Helped me to get it off my chest, Thanks again Pal! :) Ken

Marsink commented on A Cry In The Knight


Amen! The Knight doth pray in fervence, as fears evict reality and become the hole of environment. (believe me, I'd pray way hard!) Excellent imagery and telling of a demise of sanity and hope!



Thanks Marsink! :) I know it's dark - but it is very metaphorical ..I had some issues I was dealing with when I wrote this. I always find that the best way for me to release the tension/stress is through my writings. Thanks again for your awesome review my friend! :) Ken

A poem begins as a lump in the throat, a sense of wrong, a homesickness, a lovesickness. It finds the thought and the thought finds the words.

Robert Frost (1875-1963) American Poet.
