Fade To Black…

΅∼  ೋღ ღೋ      ∼΅

fade to black rain

΅∼  ೋღ ღೋ      ∼΅

Tell me…

Tell me I’ll break free from the machinations of melancholy…

Tell me the sun will shine in my heart…my soul once again…

That it will illuminate me from within radiating ever outward…

΅〜 〜΅

Tell me my beloved words will return…

The wait is interminable…

Tumultuous thoughts scream in the quiescence their departure evoked…

Emotions evanesce unable to speak…to be heard…

Locked up…

Trapped inside…

΅〜 〜΅

Memory’s echo or faint images of dream…

I can no longer differentiate…

΅〜 〜΅

They long to leave me whilst simultaneously etching themselves

in my soul awaiting their departure…

΅〜 〜΅

Yet my voice is trapped within…

Without words it is powerless…

΅〜 〜΅

Deafening silence overwhelms…

In solitary desperation my soul softly whispers…

΅〜 〜΅

Be still…


΅ ೋღ ღೋ      ΅    

For it is not disconcertion of spirit that will elicit their return…

Rather…it is in the still of night…

When you allow all of your worries…

To fade to black…

  1. You will break free
    The sun will shine in your heart again.
    Memory’s echoes and dreams can be the same. Especially if you think of them whilst going to sleep. The echoes become the dreams.

    Your voice is not powerless, your voice, even in silence, says so much.

    This is another fantastic poet my friend.


  2. Yes, exactly so. As your word tags point out – Writers block. The agony when that happens. And yet your beautiful words makes even that state of existence a poetical longing that will soon be fulfilled. Just-absolutely-excellent! Perfectly exquiste! 🙂 xo


    • Bulldog…you always give me so much encouragement to write even better! Writer’s block to me is not being able to express that which I desire….so I write about not being able to write haha! I do feel much better about now for having read your sweet comment! hehe If I could give it to you….I would…but then you would have all the gifts for your photos are beyond exquisite! Hugs & Blessings ~


  3. This feels to me like the moment when a scene from a play, movie, or tv show ends & we all await in anicipation of what happens next.


  4. Everything is cyclical…especially cycles, you will ride this one out with the grace that you conquer everything else…I know this for I am good like that.

    it says a lot that even with the words not coming to you, you have captured a sense of yearning that is palpable and takes me there. I think the words are there and perhaps you are not in the right place to see them, you are around the metaphorical corner with no handily placed yet equally metaphorical mirrors with which to see them.

    Allow these hectic times to pass and view life anew, your words will be back, someone of your talent does not have to force them to write well, all you need to do is feel. xxxxx


    • Why thank you my dearest sir….I had no idea cycles were cyclical! That is brand new information! haha… Seriously though…your insight into this is spot on and as usual…you are right (!)….though I may check Amazon or Ebay for some “metaphorical mirrors”….just in case….

      Yes….allow the hectic times to pass….deep breaths…working on that part! You are exceedingly generous in your praise of my writing…for that and so very much more I am very very appreciative of you and your magical awesomeness… xxxxx


    • Thank you so much Celestine!! I truly value and appreciate your insight…it is the being still to be able to hear that inner voice that I am working on…. Hugs & Blessings sweet friend ~


  5. I find the bit about etching while waiting to escape the most powerful part of this – something rings true, here: I sense the key work is waiting, implying hope and inevitability.

    Thanks for following my blog too.



  6. Wow. You must put all these poems into a book Christina as they need a permanent home not hidden away in your blog. Ralph xox 😀


  7. Christina, very moving. I can feel every inch of it. Love it when the worries fade to black.

    Love your little heart symbols too 🙂


    • Thank you so much Noeleen! It makes me so very happy that you can feel what I’ve written…very happy indeed!! Thank you also for liking the little extras I like to refer to as…the *heart thingys* lol 😀 ❤❤ !


  8. Love the way you have separated the “segments” here, making time gaps in reading. See what you meant when you described yourself as a word anarchist, but this is beautifully effective writing!


    • Thank you so much! I like to present my words as if I were speaking them…hence the visual breaks between. It makes me very happy indeed that you enjoyed this!


  9. I have wandered a bit here. I am captivated by your words, and carried off by your unique writing style. I hope to find more written treasures here and from you in the days to come. Thank you for sharing your reconstruction with us all.
    Keep inspiring


    • I’m honored and humbled to have you ‘wander about’…more so for enjoying your travels here in my little Dreamscape. You have given me a gift via a beautiful and cherished comment…thank you…sincerely, so very much!
