Purple Head

P1090715 Purple Head

The Black Spectre has cast his tar-like cloud
Over her purple head, purple with misgivings
And positioned a heavy millstone on her bruised chest
She can hardly breathe
Such is the weight of her despair
All hope has flown away
Far away beyond the Milky Way

Oh Death, the Grim Reaper
You don’t seem grim to her at all
But a sweet Liberator
Oh Death, you can free her tortured soul
From all suffering forever and ever

And in her agony
Courting purple Death, gasping for breath
She hears a thin pale blue voice
From within her bleeding heart

God is Love
Overriding all
Despair

Hear oh hear!
Wisdom within has spoken!
A thin pale blue call
As thin as the spider’s filament

‘I’ll cling to that flimsy call’, she tells herself
‘I’ll cling to that call until that call becomes
Crystal clear and strong as a diamond.
I’ll cling to that call until the day
Hope comes flying back home
From beyond the Milky Way.’

God is Love
Overriding all
Despair

    I totally embrace this beautiful poem. I chose the text God is Love for infant sons funeral. If all God is is that one thing ‘love’ that is enough for me.
    Blessing Irina

    Thank you, Benita. I agree with you, God is Love and that’s enough for me too. I find myself repeating that three-line acrostic every day since I wrote it only a few days ago, and it’s amazing how powerful this affirmation is. Thanks for appreciating my poem. 🙂
