For I

For this I do not say,
For I, no describe,
I bite a tongue so bloody,
For I, cannot lie.

A dream upon another,
Sky dark as day,
Or is it by night,
I seem to have lost my way,

Deserted for the cover,
Shelter never needed,
Heart remains open,
I begin the bleeding,

The let go,
Of what's known,
I can't go for I know,
Here is no home,

Secret or a lie,
For I, must not see,
A belief of a fact,
Lost in reality,

Quick binds to my chain,
Forever I shall go,
Believing in a lie,
As time gets old,

So old in space,
Capsule sealed for launch,
Leave this place now,
Oh how it taunts,

Begin what's begun,
Start to what's lost,
Past is our present,
How much did it cost,

Nothing to explain,
Secrets to digest,
Settle off and digress,
These words to our protest,

Stand now, let it out,
The Devil needs to be freed,
Controlled abuse, a substance,
For this is what I need,

Wake me from this slumber,
For I, a man in pain,
For I, a martyr of love,
For I, a burned out flame…

Poet is in deep meditation seeing this careless world..a restless world..ignorant subject, cruel kings, terror rape, and many many like this..and concluding is -Wake me from this slumber, For I, a man in pain, For I, a martyr of love, For I, a burned out flame… a nice petition for the better world away from its cruelty..a nice call
