The Turnaround

My poem for Oneshotwednesday at Oneshotpoetry
Join in!

I’m standing in front of this heavy gate,
hard to open,
hard to find

I guess it’s fate,
I was hopin’
the world won’t mind

I guess it’s too late,
expecting fortune,
I guess I’m blind

I’m in a desprate state
happiness? God forbid!
a rope to bind

struggle overcome
my spine is straight

return… a big amount
the black hole…  a little one
nothing less than great

insufficiencies… not much to count
suddenly I can have some fun
suddenly a lighter gate

now it has a whole different sound
what’s it called?

I think it’s called happiness…

Up in the air (to my friend Adrian)

Up in the air is where he’s free
free as a bird
who scrapes the sky with its golden wings

his shadow hits the ground
barely visible to him as he flies
through endless skies - eternal freedom

but not long after
he is back at the bottom
the bottom of boredom

But – comfort - the thought alone
of being up there
even if just for a few moments

his dream come true

Up in the air

The Dark Wizard

The Dark Wizard has cast his spell
screams from the caves of the far mountains
Fireballs from hell
shoot at the innocent, the Devil’s dance

The souls of the lost travel west
in hope of finding peace and salvation
a warm receiving chest
to keep them from damnation

But forever lost
for fighting for no reason
the only way for them to rest
is known, in our world, as treason

That path they have to follow
and at the end they know at once
that tomorrow –
They’re remembered by their loved ones

The rain clouds slowly gather round
rain to descend
a brief glimps of light shines toward the ground
the summer ends

But the minor shine
at the time of noon
wakes the patience of mine
to wait for another few moons

autumn, winter, spring

when the birds start to sing
