A Violet Sky ~ a collaboration

If I could sing songs of magic
Reciting words not so tragic,
My life would surely faint,
A violet sky to paint.
Staring at heaven with eyes shut,
Travel the stars like a space nut.
A flame proof suit, for what it’s worth,
Worn with the flag of my home: Earth.

But I can’t even hold a tune
And lament always tends to loom,
Over my dreary life
With an old rusty knife,
Cutting my interstellar dreams,
Ripping them open ’til I scream.
Open my eyes to see the red,
Wishing voices out of my head.

If I could dream, this man would fly;
Spread arms like wings and soar on high,
Forego the pain that frays,
Bright as a comet splays.
Exhale the life lived in the past,
Breathe the unknown future, at last.
In my own hands destiny waits;
Deafening silence that sedates.

And reminds me without a sound
That I’m painfully here earthbound.
Clouds unfurl and encroach,
A violet sky, as if to broach.
And start to pour mercilessly,
Upon my head, melancholy.
Thus dare not dream deep down inside,
Instead I wait the ebbing tide.

If I could find a reason why
This life should live rather than die,
May a light shine bright
From this darkest of nights.
Taken by one last stolen chance,
As the blade glides, swollen eyes glance,
To see the stars begin to fade,
With final breath my choice is made.

And thus the darkness closes in
Accusing every star of sin,
Obliterating hope
Of starry dreams to cope.
Resounding silence now transports,
To an oblivion of sorts,
My soul beyond the stars on high
To rest amidst a violet sky.

This message has taken me about a whole day to write. What can I say about Oscar Alejandro other than to say he is an amazing person. Not only talented but giving. He gave me a piece of his time. A stranger from another part of the world, never face to face. Thats a cool heart!
His talent is breath taking, an amazing artist.

      3. And what a lovely blog it is. You are talented Rita n many ways.

  1. Reblogged this on In So Many Words and commented:
    The following poem is a collaboration with the talented and diverse writer known as “Ax” from the poetry blog called “Perso~In-Poesia”. Please follow this reblog link to his site and enjoy our collaborative efforts titled: “A Violet Sky”, as well as his own personal, mind blowing poetry born of the “thoughts exploding in his head”.

  2. A violet sky is too often in the eyes of too many. May we have the courage to offer them a ‘semicolon’ in a life headed towards a self-inflicted ‘period’.

    It was my pleasure collaborating with you, Ax! Your writing is raw and passionate; sparking creativity in the darkest corners of my mind.
