Six Questions (Pandora’s Box) Posted by JMC813 on January 19, 2015 Who Who is to say where our destiny lies? To decide where this illusion ends And real life comes into view Fates are wrapped up tight Inside Pandora’s ornate box What What strange and cruel reality is this? Where such perfection is far out of reach As close as a gentle loving whisper Yet so far away the distance is unbearable While time ticks away the miles in between When When will the day arrive that sees the miles disappear? Forests and deserts vanishing into togetherness As time succumbs to the power of beauty And Pandora’s box can finally be unlocked Letting free this torrent of raw human emotion Where Where will we be inside our minds? When we are allowed into our secret garden Free at last to run wild and let passions grow To fevered pitch while the skies open wide Engulfing rays of light pouring from our souls Why Why must it take so long? To bring meant to be into being To see what was so obviously hidden Right in plain view for all but one While ravages of time laughed mockingly How How are we to find our way to hearts freedom? The promise of morning balances against the night Sun and Moon in an obedient place in the sky While Pandora’s box finally reveals it’s mysteries Beautiful mayhem pours directly into our solitary heart AdvertisementRate this:Share this:TwitterFacebookPinterestEmailLike this:Like Loading...

Stunning poem. Wow!!!!
Thank you Java Girl. So good to see you here again.
Just WOW!!!!! That’s all I can think to say. 🙂
Thanks Sammiegyrl. I love to hear WOW!! One of my favorite words actually. LOL.
Reblogged this on Love Songs And Mood Swings.
Thank you Lisa
I have no words about this piece. You have managed to capture what is in all of our hearts. It seems like it should stand in the light for all to see.
I reblogged it on love songs and Mood swings. I would really like it if you would reblog it on UE. If you want to…
I only have a clue as to some of these questions. The why… the light has to reach its full apex. No one gets left behind. It’s about mercy for all. It’s about how one will have NO excuse for their actions.
“One” as in the literary sense only. The CON-FUSION comes in because there is a dual prophecy going on here. The greatest evil and the greatest good being raiseduction at the same time. I take comfort in the fact that once a side is chosen there is no escaping that choice. Which is why I tell people, pick a side and know why you chose it.
It’s all akin to a husband holding there wife’s hand through the birth of their child. It hurts doesn’t it? Imagine what the females feel.
In the end, “why” doesn’t even really matter. If we knew everything, we could still change nothing.
And yes I did write raiseduction on purpose. SEE how that works?
Thanks for your comments Lisa. I am going to reblog to UE.
Really love this one John…
How did you gather these brilliant thoughts and lay them out so well!!
Wow Willow. Such flattery. I have to say recent events have made my heart and mind both ask these questions.
These are dark days but there is always hope. xxx
Thank you Willow. Dark days happen, but there is a single light shining bright for me. I just need patience and determination to feel it’s warmth eventually.
Very good my friend…..
Thank you friend.
This is my favorite of yours thus far. Really struck a chord with me John. XO
Thanks Jazz Hands. Been going through a very interesting time on the romantic/relationship front lately. Heart is fully displayed on BOTH sleeves. Usually not where I like to write from, but it lends itself so easily to pouring from the soul. This one “We” and “Superman Bleeds” were all born of this very unique situation. Really glad this struck a chord with you friend. You are an awesome and caring friend. I love and appreciate that.
Right back at you! Best of luck with your heart on both sleeves….not always a bad thing my friend.
Awesome my friend!
I can read this one over and over.
Hugz & Love ❤
Thanks Patty. Hugs and Love back at you.
I love this poem, my interpretation is that of longing, of lovers apart. That is my take on this…beautifully poignant.
Holly, if you only knew how absolutely spot on you are with your interpretation. Thanks for reading and such thoughtful insight.
I think I do! Lovely poem.
