The Chamber

Spread the love

headmasters_office

I am a room bathed in light. I am hiding secrets grim.
I long to utter a speech while whispers come and die.
Beneath the desk and chair hold documents well aware;
I turn my back upon tempestuous love affairs.

Often late at night when helmer meditates;
The pangs of unlit conscience with fear
I chose to claim. Outcast and forgotten
I am often dark and closed. If solitude’s
the heart of wasteland, I am dauntless
Through and through.

I am open once again to newer age prospects
Have left my youth in gold cruet I figured
Oh what’s the use. At times I peered alone
His worn and battered face. I am yet to find
Deduce if Β jokes were blunt or crude.

    Sanaa you use the image to mirror your verse (or is it the other way around?)
    Fantastic feel of noir – may be the darkest you’ve written.

  12. I am open once again to newer age prospects
    Have left my youth in gold cruet I figured

    It is a natural progression from youth towards maturity. It gives insight to the more matured minds to prepare for the cruel world of reality. Very well expressed Sanaa!

  13. Sanaa,

    The image shows a rather formal chamber; cold and a scary environment..I imagine it creaks at night…Useful for getting the mind working overtime!

    This is so sad Sanaa. (Especially turning your back on tempestuous love affairs!) However move on we must, learn from our past, and embrace the future and leave those unfathomable jokes behind!

  16. Jamztoma says:

    Somehow the room bathed in light is kind of mysterious and gives me the willies. I am saying that because of the picture. The other side is darkened and then there’s the room half-open which is well-lit. I wonder what goes on in there.
