I push my fingers into my eyes…
Opening lines into oblivion,
Criss-crossed onyx and obsidian
Running through internal meridian,
A dark heart doth their passage make.
Wandering and left behind,
Out of sight, out of mind,
Behold what you had sought to find,
A darkness that you cannot take.
And so you left me to recover,
Bleeding, broken, I discover,
That my life is not yet over,
And my soul you cannot break.
A little poetry prompted by today’s topic at The Daily Post: Opening Lines, wherein bloggers are challenged to use the first line of the last song we listened to as the first line of a blog post. This poem was inspired by the last song I listened to, Duality by Slipknot. The poem itself actually has little to do with the song, this is just where I went from that first line.
