A Shore Upon Blood


...Crimson shades belittle the tone...

As I stand I feel... erased.
erased from mind.
Like a thought...

...The gentle waves caress my toes...

I stare out into the horizon.
a dimming feeling...

...The soft sand beneath my feet...

I stand forever still.
Like an old sentinel.
From an innumerable time.
The sands of time spilling over me.
A numbing touch...

...A cool breeze chills the flesh...

Rushing waves become reminiscent.
Of a long time... an age of power.
But now... an ill of abstraction...

...I have dwelled for an ever long time...

Who am I?
I am your prospective future.
An age old reminder of your strength.
I am what remains of our glorious splendour.
I am the remnants of mankind... our long reign.
But now simply put... Forgotten...

Poem of the Day

poet Henry David Thoreau

Conscience is instinct bred in the house,
Feeling and Thinking propagate the sin
By an unnatural breeding in and in.
I say, Turn it out doors,
Into the moors.
