Dead Spot

Dead Spot meaning:

an area in which radio or cell phone signals are weak and their reception poor. 
(Basically isolation or being cut off temporarily from the world for whatever reason)
This piece is special to me because after I wrote it I was going to submit it to the school authorities for the year book… but as things turned out it was not meant to be… a few guys thought it would be funny if they snatched my back pack and read this it out in public before tearing it into shreds. *shrug* I kept writing. Public opinion is irrelevant.

The window is open still

And will be for ages until

All is illuminated by this vision

No boundaries, no division

As the world is lit by candle light

Already beginning to lose sight

For every wrong there is a right

He who shall end the eternal night

It’s easier to succumb to greed

Than attempting an honest deed

But think before you act

Weight the gravity of its impact

What the shadow fails to hide

Is that a coin has more than one side

Reality warps as those tears

Let loose a thousand fears

Can you sense the gentle breeze?

A million souls it shall subtly freeze

Feel the rain wash away your regrets

Late at dawn when the sun sets

Through bleeding eyes glimpse

As the fading light of an eclipse

Begin to take shape and define

Something different, something divine

Let those who have been stained

From this day forth be forever unchained

Silently he has grieved

on behalf of the deceived

But now the time has come

To save the silenced, the lonesome

Giving voice to the echoes

He casts aside their shadows

Daytime leaks through the shutters

In the corner a lone butterfly flutters

    1. Thank you. I had to tell myself, “To convince others, you must first convince yourself”. I believed that if I kept on writing, for myself at the very least, one day I would reach a point where at least a few others would grow to appreciate what I had to share.

      The kind words mean a lot, slainte!
