Poems by Lily Swarn

 

 

THAT ROAD

 

You know that road

The one that meanders into my heart

It’s full of pot holes in which humans accidentally fall if they are not careful

It has no protective lid that shields it

It cannot protect you from

the painful thud

The grimy slush

The festering stink

The dark abyss

Of my heart’s dingy alleys

Where ominous black cats

Bristle their fur and glare accusingly

Where whistles and cat calls resound

Reverberating in a cacophony

Ricocheting past gutters of slime

Where thickened blood awaits its aspirin dose

Where coagulating desires lump up into clots

Into that road my friend

You must tread

REPOSE

 

Burnished souls

light as feathers

 

Enraptured souls

Bright as gold

 

Enlightened souls

Soft as cream

 

A silver salver of irradiation

Purging ions of mortality

Luminous rays of benediction

Ferrying souls to repose

One thought on “Poems by Lily Swarn

  1. Lily Swarn is not only a poet, a prophet but also a seer who is able to penetrate into the very DEPTH of the complex and often contradictory nature of the Human mind and soul. It is out of that in-depth realisation that she is able to touch and heal the complexities of relationships and proclaim a message to the condition of the emmerging Modern Global Human.
