Beyond the hole
Belongs on a page
Where words won't live.
A static shadow
From the hearts of the dying.
The surface may ripple,
But the frozen
Comes from beyond the waves.
The truth witnessed by a
A scream to part the clouds.
A flash of life as the
Sowed the seed for this
A shadow cast where dreams belong.
Did god say I've done something wrong.
A constipated scream. Released.
Contracted fear expelled the beast.
Now the enemy is within.
A lonely wait for the cloud to thin.
A new short experimental film based on a poem I wrote 10 years ago. Thus, I am calling this a video poem. As the protagonist sits at a crossroads in their life, they pause and reflect on the inner turmoil, angst and doubt caused by the pschological effects of violent abuse. Time has not healed the mental wounds and the protagonist is unable to move forward in their life. Life is passing by, as he/she waits for some catharsis.
