Truth and Contrasts

Dark this passage,
blustery the winds
that rattle the glass,
cold seeping through cracks,
light receding.

Life, we are sold,
should be parties
and castles – dreams
without limits –
disingenuous campaign

Truth lies somewhere
in-between –
elusive, yet enticing –
I would exit this isolation
shake the starkness
for but a glimpse.

  1. The emotion in each stanza is so strong – I find myself inadequate to say which is the best.

    The bleakness of the storm, life being described as a campaign and finally ‘shaking the starkness’ for a glimpse of truth … would truth be starker than what we see or more resplendent?

    Keep writing for the Exploration Challenge! It is such a pleasure.
