Of Flawed Seductions and Lonely Struggles

Of Flawed Seductions and Lonely Struggles

Two days.

I lost my saviour.

We build cathedrals to our pain,

The deeds I chose for our everlasting unity

ruptured heaven.

Establish monuments to attain,

You fly away a one winged.

Am I a freakish abomination?

Freedom from all of the scars and the sins,

Can I please ask

for a change of heart?

Lest we drown in the darkness within.

– F H Hakansson

  1. ohhh i love the way two poems inter-weave here!

    unsettling doubts often seem to energise us to try even more for that cosmic moment … enlightenment .. a blisteringly perfect moment when Everything’s All Right …

    this is simultaneously delicate and desperate .. divinely human …


    1. Thank you so much! 😀 Yes I felt the two texts implemented each other in a very good great. I’m glad I’m not the only one who thought that.
      Yes, I agree with what you say. Sometimes when your life seems darkest you reach a point of clarity where you truly see who you are and what has become of you. It is from this point you can chose to really change you life around – on the cost of momentary depression, of course.
