Silence and Darkness

Silence and Darkness

Wait!

Silence
crippling from creaking floors
consuming screams of
loneliness and depression
familiarizing voices echoing

Wait.

Darkness
smiting and unleashing silence
muting pictures and voices
subduing imagination
assailing greed

Wait.

Silence
gaining power
of unmanaged anxiety
from muted voices
and isolated thoughts

Wait.

Darkness
invoking pain
AGAIN
pain invoking
darkness

Wait.

Thoughts isolated and
voices muted from
anxiety unmanaged of
power gaining
silence

Wait.

Greed assailing
imagination subduing
voices and pictures muting
darkness unleashing and smiting
darkness

Wait.

Echoing voices familiarizing
depression and loneliness
of screams consuming
floors creaking from crippling
silence

Wait!

Thank you, NuBorn:  you have submitted the perfect mirror of your soul -- visually (graphically), literally (structurally), emotionally (expressively).

If I were still a literature teacher, I would include your work in my instruction examples of the palindromic form.

Best regards to you in the competition.

Sincerely

cab

Thanks for your entry, russell_snow!
You seem to have followed the rules precisely.  My best regards for your placement in the competition.

PS
If you're not Dr Russell Snow, ENT specialist from Caldwell, Idaho, you're at least a DUP protagonist!

Sincerely


Ah darn! That's not me, but suppose I should have used my alter ego that no one's heard of,  Jon Snow

Yeah!  After all, you don't do ENT:  you do the whole brain.

My dark side left the pages blank

love evol

I wanted nothing from this world but to find my love
While she was always close... I was always so far
Only ever needing as to reflect my soul lamp
Made I so worlds falling in love with her
Soul spun our time of all that meant
First to find my heart then last
Last then heart my find to first
Meant that all of time our spun soul
Her with love in falling worlds so I made
Lamp soul my reflect to as needing ever only
Far so always was I... close always was she while
Love my find to but world this from nothing wanted I

Die Id

soul unsaved

terror in lost dark night
breath as cold as ice
fears and crying

of skylines receding
visions fading
angelic voices calling

came man
fearless of

death

of fearless man

came calling voices
angelic fading visions
receding skylines

of crying and fears
ice as cold as breath
night dark

lost in terror
unsaved soul

Wonderful, NewB!

Here's one that 's different from the rest in its 3-D projection of words into images.  An interesting continuum.

Thank you.

Indeed, you have, MewB.

NB  I have PM-ed you about a slight discrepancy that I have noticed subsequent to my earlier comment.  Please take a little time to address it.

Sincerely

DEIFIED

Dreaming deep
Within
Prisms of fragmentation
Inside the mind
Being sensible
Of
Lost reflections
For
Searching endlessly
Until
Loving and wanting
Becomes
DEIFIED
Becomes
Wanting and loving
Until
Endlessly searching
For
Reflections lost
Of
Sensible being
Mind the inside
Fragmentation of prisms
Within
Deep dreaming
