My poem about the new album SOE

Recommended Posts

To Love, I Rhapsodize

In the last flicker of light dust settles on my heart
Tragedy beheld the night as I tore my skin apart
Crushed under the weight of this darkness and screaming
Love please save me, so I can continue my dreaming

I’m wrought with anxiety and desperation
I’m grasping at multiple strands of connection
Formidable pain felt, a communal heartbroken
Listening intently for those familiar words to be spoken

A ting pierced the silent evening of stored rage
Could this be my friend, deliverance freeing me from my cage?
A universe exists within my soul, a kaleidoscope of color
I can feel the vibrations of pain and joy coming in from another

A fragment of a star rejoices in melodies soft and profound
Drowning in a darkness I am rescued by love and sound
I will travel with this light to a place of safety and fun
Dancing inside the glorious beauty of this brightly lit sun

I thought my soul had weakened from such despair
I realize now that it’s an isolation all of us share
Waiting for our preacher to teach us how to radiate a glow
In utter defiance of hate we sing along to start the show

I can now hear my own quiet voice written in a love letter
A song that lifts the spirit and makes it all feel so much better
I would swim beyond the breaking waves to prove devotion
Carrying the love with me as I navigate treacherous ocean

My emotions stripped raw, I yearn for solid earth
This romance has pushed me on forcing rebirth
I stand strong now, no longer silent in dark fear
The dust falls off my heart as I shed a grateful tear

Thank you

You are welcomed,  Friend619! I used to be a part of a writing group that was specifically for poetry that dissolved.  I miss my poet friends that were in this group as well as the activity of critiquing and sharing our poems together. This gives me a little bit of that virtually and to have it inspired by U2 music is just awesome. The lyrics from SOE are so heartfelt and emotional that one cannot help but be inspired artistically by what we're hearing out of our beloved U2!
