One of my favorite bloggers is Sage Doyle. It isn’t an exaggeration to say I am addicted to his Wall Grimm posts….but he is also a wonderful poet. He is such a busy person that I always feel honored and a bit special when I get to write with him. Yesterday, I was feeling…. blah…. and decided to ask him to write this piece below with me. It was his idea to have alternate endings so you will have to visit his page for the alternate version he will post soon…FINDING LIFE. Brilliant idea…hope you like them both.
WRITTEN BY SAGE DOYLE AND HASTYWORDS
Sometimes my heart beat is silent
And my mind is too tired to think
I sit inside my skin feeling empty
As the world around me sinks
Within this thick skin strides my soul
A fruitless banquet of all my fears
Ravished by others’ wraths and faults
Forcing anger while battling tears
Reduced to an emotional skeleton
Phantoms born from my breath
Dance hauntingly in the dark
Escorting me from life into death
And that heaving spirit grips my veins
As I stagger with a severed mind
Bracing desperately with my bloodied heels
While my greatest strengths weaken me blind
Unforgiving sins slash at my wrists
Running out of time as thoughts rewind
Without any sense left of right or wrong
I can feel myself leave mortality behind

That is excellent. I await the other post.
🙂 it was good to write and Sage is amazing with words. 🙂
This is a work of poetic art.
It made me happy last night when you said “that is really very good”. Best compliment in a long time from you. 🙂
Stupid unforgiving, wrist-slashing sins!!!
You don’t have to.
I never said that… and I already did horrible photos of you…
I picture you is some sexy alien outfit… but I was doing that before the poem, so…

A great poem by Sage Doyle (dark, death).
Hello! Dropping by from SageDoyle’s blog and read the poem 🙂
You know there is this teaching or thought which says that Heaven and Hell are actually the last impressions of the soul before it leave the body. It’s like the two poems …one of Heaven and one of Hell. I think it’s really awesome! 😀
