A Night Before Battle

</>Lying in the open and gazing at stars
Gives me nothing but the war of thoughts
The thoughts try to defeat one another
but die in vain to let in new thoughts

Shield below my head sword in the hands
my head visualizes the attack of bands
Blood rush through my head n heart
on the ground of thoughts my spirit lands.

There is no one to fight, no blood to spill
Below is the dissolving ground of thoughts
Hordes and hordes of vermins wait to kill
with no blade to fight, no armor to defend

Ground changes the colour, blood gushes in brain
The gray matter churns and creates a new aura
the pressure creates and makes me insane
Everyone stabs me, kills me to the end of pain

And I lie dead on the ground of thoughts
these thoughts become thin, start to disperse
everything starts to blur in the clinging knots
Something influences me like magic, like a curse

A ray of light sparkles and penetrates my eyes
And every creature pounds every inch of me
Stars have gone and the light has arrived
Amid the preparing comrades, lies me.....

Heaven's Reaches Within Hand Clasps standing outside in quiet open spaces in empty park or in a field surrounded by circumference of an horizon sphere gazing at stars filling night velvet void lying in open spaces gazing at stars in the warm wind stream of night induces a curiosity haunting longing star gazing introspection inspires differing mood personality perceptions gazing up at stars on cold winter nights inspires sharp chill cutting crisp clarities reaches within heavens within hand clasps Copyright © Terence George Craddock Inspired by my comment upon the poem 'A Night Before Battle' by Usman Hanif.

A well deserved poem of the day.
Good write indeed. The thought drama is after all what is life. The third verse is remarkable. To the simple vermin we are nothing. Congrats.
'Lying in the open and gazing at stars' in the wind stream of night, induces in me a haunting longing, a cold impaling chill, a desire to grasp unattainable distances, a need to master transfix time space continuum, to explore time secrets sealed in eternity, to unlock know creations discoveries civilizations released in alien minds
