The Gates of Horn and Ivory

Two Gates the silent House of Sleep adorn; Of polish'd Iv'ry this, that of transparent Horn:
True Visions thro' transparent Horn arise; Thro' polish'd Iv'ry pass deluding Lies.

    Hands held up to the face, tears flowing
    Through open fingers.
    Dark hair slowly turning white, snowing,
    Memories and regrets alight.

    Thinking back to days before,
    Laughter, smiles, merriment.
    Thinking back to days ago,
    Brittle paint chips away.

    The image crumbles in outstretched hand,
    A memory disintegrates.
    With tired scrutiny trying hard to understand,
    The juxtaposed image shards.

    Aging before aging happens,
    Succumbing to decay.
    Open wounds, the pain sharpens,
    Can never be the same again.

    Dark hair slowly turning white,
    Lines drawn where once flawless skin.
    Tears run dry, track down beneath clawing fingers,
    As bitter memories and regrets linger.

    God that is so melancholic and beautiful. The first 4 lines are inspired.

    I remember all the poetry you would write. Some of it was so good, I was just amazed and envious of your talent. You still have that inside I see. I am feeling very melancholy lately, well today at least. This made it slice at me like biting edge of a knife.

    Thanks for the compliments, uma. I should've pushed harder on my writing at an earlier age, and stopped procrastinating. "Slice at me like biting edge of a knife"? I'm not sure if that's a good thing :S

    I'm sorry I only write when I'm melancholic myself @_@ I need to write happy pieces.
