My first feeble attempt at poetry :P.
Seeing now what’s always been,
another sight too blind for sin.
How it goes we’ve always seen,
repeat it does in hand-built scheme.
Insisting now the bottom found,
of love that never has had bound.
Yet words found state works are right,
still hasten on that darker night.
Joy is now as pain will sing,
lonely solace, tortured king.
Outside the inner wall was built,
strong enough to hold the guilt.
Safe is not where questions dwell,
reversed, did judge, the Hades’ hell.
For in was out and out was in,
though still insisting hatred’s sin.
Words of spirit read by soul,
spoken loud from blinded hole.
Spirit sees what soul will hide,
deceptive curse of selfish pride.
Perceive the tale whose meaning hid,
of those who plot of others rid.
While bids are lain for hope to end,
lines in sand will proud defend.
And words hold true when all approve,
but tortured king has made the move.
Love’s pure light was found and lost,
repeat again forsaken’s cost.

Quite good, John. Not feeble at all.
