"Where is the wise man? Where is the scholar? Have they not been made such a fool in their squalor?

For they desired a sign and sought for the wise

When the precursor of life was right in front of their eyes" - Wolves at the Gate


My desk is the foundation.
My pen is the support.
An open mind relieves frustration.
An open heart is a book.

His words are emotion wrapped in ink.
His promise is a façade.
Like a lie that seeps through the teeth.
Like the final seconds of day.

Her eyes are a warm embrace.
Her voice is a rushing river.
Like a fear that's meant to be faced.
Like the arrow waiting in the quiver.

Your jealousy is the ball.
Your hate is the chain.
This house is ruin.
This life is pain.

I love how poems can mean so many different things to different people. Even the tiniest detail is an allusion to something I'm going through, but everyone will interpret it incorrectly. Well, everone but her...

In the first stanza I am explaining how I was able to vent through writing. The second refers to the ex of my ex and how he would use guilt trips on my then girlfriend. But he was a liar, and everything he said was empty and loaded with bad intent. The third symbolizes that deep inside she is strong enough to tell him "no", but she is afraid. And finally, the last stanza shows that her ex is jealous; he hates me. The "house" is a representation of me in general, and how my ex-girlfriend's relationship with him was causing me pain. She and him have a kid together, so he wasn't going to leave the picture. It was a difficult time in my life. But, however, it's a season that has passed.

Hey Lexie! I miss you too. Danny did skype me, and I sent him a message to relay to you, but from the sounds of things you didn't get it. I hope things are going well for you. And thanks, I like this poem. It's loaded with meaning. :)
