Say Something ~ a tri-collaboration



God stands to look over his flock
His eyes watered, a tear welled
He remembered the beginning
He recalled the love that was put
Into creating a world, that lives and breathes
With life of every kind, one, with a mind
He bowed His head and He shook
He bit his lip, blood dripped
~
“Say something, I’m giving up on you”
Wasted plea she whispers upon His crown
Starved by the flaccid attention He feeds His sheep
She licks the remains of their tithed release
Her faith diminished under the glow of his halo
Seeking salvation that He denies with feigned grace
Forsaken by poetic scripture He inks for them
She flees to the darkness under wing of another false prophet
~
“I don’t love you, but I always will”
Is what He sees and hears from above
His flock refusing His saving grace
Relying on themselves, shunning His love
Through the pain, realization comes
They are what He created, and given free will
As their Father, He’ll always love them
and the choice to accept His love, is theirs
~
“Say something, I’m giving up on you”
The silence was deafening as thunder shakes
“Say something, I’m giving up on you”
Tears fall as her scorned heart breaks
“Say something, I’m giving up on you”
His heart breaks from their continued rejection
“Say something I’m giving up on you”
~
I surrender in blood and ashes
As the angels weep tears of sorrow
Heaven and Earth stills in reflection

 

Written By in Collaboration
Dana ~ Love Letters Lost At Sea  ~  visit her blog here
Adhamh ~ Southside of Heaven  ~  visit his blog here

Honor and Privilege are two words of many that can and does describe this post for me. To be able to collaborate with two extremely talented poets. Two poets I regard as Friends first and foremost. Links to their blogs are above, please, please visit for more magical rides from the depths of the sea to dream and to the sky’s above and beyond as far as we can see.

Dana, thank you for writing with me again. Humbled and grateful doesn’t cut it but I hope you know how I really feel.

Adhamh, our first collaboration and what better way than to slide along side our Lady friend. Thank you for sharing your talent and artistry.

      1. You’ve done it again Antony and addressed me as a man 😥
        Lol, it’s “ma” chère, but I totally forgive you because you make the effort to speak to me in my language. And because you’re awesome. That too 😉 ❤

    I had the wonderful opportunity to partake in a collaboration with Ax and Dana. It was a great experience writing with both of these wonderful people and poets. I hope you enjoy the results as much as I enjoyed writing it with them.

  2. The three of you did a splendid job. The thing about free will is interesting because we often forget it’s our own to control. Oh and John Legend sat on my shoulder all the while reading this, but I’m not complaining…he was great in concert. 😉

  3. I will be forever indebted to you for your friendship!! Thank you for allowing me to be a part of this amazing experience. I enjoyed being surrounded by such creative genius!! Smiles. I love you, friend!!

    I am a very open-minded and adventurous soul, but never had the pleasure of a threesome — until now. And of course, it is a threesome of poets, intermingling our words and thoughts into one thought-provoking, touching poem. Thank you to Ax for considering me worthy of such an endeavor. You are truly a creative genius! And Ádhamh, thank you for believing in me and reassuring me that I could indeed do this. Your writing always makes mine better. Please visit the original on Ax’s blog. ❤
