The Future.

I try not to think of the future too much these days,
It gets too much to bear if I do;
It wakes the serpent lodged inside,
And wraps it around my rib cage so tightly,
Weaving in and out of ribs so lovingly,
I cannot breathe,
I cannot scream,
I can only sit
With teary eyes
As the snake gnaws at my heart with its poisonous mouth,
And try to imagine what it’ll be like,
When you finally leave,
When our time is over,
Will the serpent devour my heart,
Like did Ammut, a sinner’s,
Heavier than the feather of Ma’at?
Will my soul be cast off into darkness forever,
I must know
For there is no doubt, my dear
That when you leave I shall cease to exist.

      1. Hi Moony! I´ve come up with an idea for a drawing related to your beautiful poem “The Future” and wanted to ask if you would mine if I were to reblog it on my blog? I reckon it might not be in the usual style of pictures you seem to use here (and which I love – black and white photography is simply the best!), but as the drawing could only show up on my blog with the reference to yours of course, I thought I would give it a try and ask you;) Have a lovely day! Sarah:)

          1. Oh, thank you!!! I´ll get started right away! But please: if you do not like it, don´t feel pushed to issue it on your blog! You´re blog has a beautiful and classic look to it that I like very much, and I´m not sure, if my drawing will match it…
            I´ll let you know when I´m finished as soon as I can! Sarah:)

            1. I’d post it on the blog even if it were a few scribbles, I’m so touched right now, Sarah. Art isn’t supposed to look good, it’s supposed to make you feel, if I may quote Eleanor And Park. 🙂
