Blistered – dVerse Open Link Week 125

Here’s my latest entry into the dVerse Open Link – why not take a look at all of the other wonderful responses?

Here’s another trip inside my dark future imaginings – all fiction, no semi-factual miseries are on display tonight!

*****

– Blistered –

The firmament is empty, lost

Beseech the heavens however we may

Silence is our answer now

His throne is vacant, cobweb-strewn.

 

Spiders dance in macabre delight

Morals swept under carpets thick

With justification of mealy mouths

Speaking half-truths, lies, all lies.

 

We broke the world with ingrained hate

For ourselves and Nature’s joys

Greed and power have skewed our sight

We are profoundly broken.

 

The firmament is empty, lost

The abandoned house above, forlorn

Our spirits are directionless

Our hearts are vacant, shattered.

  1. This has an eerie quality to it. And also a sadness…when I read that the spirits are directionless and hearts vacant. Doesn’t sound like a very pleasant state.

  2. It’s scary and eerily beautiful at the same time. I like these lines-
    Morals swept under carpets thick

    With justification of mealy mouths

    Speaking half-truths, lies, all lies.
    They speak to me because humans have always used need as a justification for greed.

  3. Wow, Freya – you’ve hit the jackpot with this one! It says so much about the current state of the world, and of we who live in it, but it doesn’t pull back from placing the blame where it really lies – with us.

    My onnly slight reservation is with the word But at the beginning of your fourth line; it isn’t necessary; in fact, it confuses the sense of the thought, at least for me.

  4. This rings so true of the way our world can feel these days… although I think there is still beauty to be found, we just have to work harder to find it.

    A very compelling, eerie read!

  5. I don’t feel a powerlessness here. Almost as if we are the destroyer. Or one of the few could clear the world of its broken pieces.

  6. Such a sense of sadness. Almost fitting for the dreary day we’re having weather wise where I am.

    “We broke the world with ingrained hate” Damn, just damn.
