Split Soul Angel

Icarus

Icarus (Photo credit: drurydrama (Len Radin))

How is it that your words
Your music and your poetry
Draw from such a source
Of deep, beauteous profundity
Ethereal, otherworldly soul
That captures the listener
Entirely, whole
And yet your actions in this world
Are dark and lost
Demonic goals?

When gods forged our natures
In the pit of chaos’ well
Did they realise in contradiction
They fashioned many paths to hell?
Split soul angel rises through
Your dual toned nature
Defining you
So while I fall before
Your pitiless crimes
The song rings true?

How is it that your mind
So crystalline and pure of thought
Can render in your words and images
All that art and religion sought
A rising on the glittering wings
Of hopeful Icarus
As the sepharim sing
And yet your actions
Only grief and pain and
Sorrows bring?

Like most people, I have a number of sides to me. The most interesting one probably emerges through my writing, hence this blog. I love to read, and also to write, and so this is a way to share both.
