take me with you

mama nem
said there'd be
days like this...
but those alloted to me
have turned sour.
wax mold smeared
into permanent stains
which exhibit my disdain.
that's why it came
like a blessing it did~
that beam
of salvation
pulsating with a power
that sang to me
in tones of tomorrow.
i longed for this entity
that would be my transition
to a better life...
anything would suffice.
yet this tube of tribulation
brightened the night sky
as day
and turned my angst
into anticipation.
i was lifted up high,high
smiling as my worries faded
into the ever shrinking chaos
that lay behind me...
until a booming horn sounded,
sending my wretchedness
cascading once more to reality.
i never saw them again
after that.
stories and stories of stories
increased my confidence for naught. i search the skyline
at twilight
hoping for another glimpse
of deliverance.


  1. A wonderful array of rhyme, emotion, and imagery. Think the tone of the passage below is outstanding, especially the afterthought.
    "i longed for this entity
    that would be my transition
    to a better life...
    anything would suffice."
    Great work with the prompt, wurdz. Quite a journey.
