calling of the caves...

these caves dark and dreamy
glossy with underground running streams
moist air and choked light
through the crevices, feeble screams
numb inside the hole in earth
life writhing inside the womb
a breath of air, from somewhere in dark
moving inside the humanities tomb

blurred pictures across 
these prehistoric walls
mute stories,nimble thoughts
of rise and fall 
of humankind,their strive
                 emotions on display,
                                       anger,joy, struggle for life

                           groping dead walls
                       walking with fickle feet
                   disgust and mystery
                        of lives buried beneath,

                      towards the enlightened end, 
                  a beam of light
                        falling at someplace 
                               far end of sight
             going from dark to light
away from shrouded past
to leave behind our grudges
erasing our scars...

Author notes
i keep falling, i keep going, i like such places, but don't want to be left there alone...~thefallenpoet~


i face this question today,
standing atop this cliff,
washing ashes of my past
charred soul,body and sins...
facing the winds of change,
blowing on water surface,
ripples have turned to waves,
splattering on rocks,
overlooking the recklessness,
of sea...
             a swinging bridge 
                 to civilized habitat, shudders...
            i can't decide, where i belong
it's cold and wet here,
but peace and serene
its warm and nice there,
also turbulent and mean...
bleak and dark,infiniteness
over glowing bright end,
journey or destination,
truth or pretence...
happy or content,
arrival or presence,
soul stirring or stimulant,
watchful or negligent,
to what extent 
to what lengths, 
do i have to follow
in the footsteps...

A cold sigh,
lay here ,die,
legs are weak,
power to speak
is gone,
bleak glimmer of hope,
knot end of rope,
lie, here at my feet...
