Enter The Void

Void - David Frantz

The bottle breaks.
The pieces of glass lift into the chill air.
Piercing everything, fly everywhere.

Entering the void.
The vacuum dissolves into
Something more substantial.
Blackened cold mist in a glass vial.

But it was broken,
Not too long ago.
The ear-splitting screams benumbed.
As the house of cards, the bridges and the walls crumbled.

The air was deadened
With the stillness of dark water.
As it flowed down to the graves of the undying.
And left the murky mist red, cold, silently murmuring.

As the voices refused to leave.
As the conscience refused to fade.
As the walls were left unwashed.
As the graves were left forever open.

Why do I find a stark similarity with my "A lipstick stained glass"?

It maybe because I am biased but does this poem speak of similar things too?

D2 said...

This poem is not similar to 'A Lipstick Stained Glass' in any way. I don't know what made me write this but this poem is about the darkness of human emotions when something grave has happened and because of it, a huge abyss stretching out to nothingness is created (I think). :P

Purba said...

Where do you get these stunning images from?

D2 said...

@Purba Di : Google search!
And do tell me what you thought about the poem as well!

Sayak Shome said...

Have you watched the film 'Enter The Void'? If not, please do!

D2 said...

@Sayak : There's a movie by that name? :O
This I have to see!

Sayak Shome said...

It's a film by one of my favourite directors, Gaspar Noe. Do watch it.

D2 said...

Already downloaded. Will watch it very soon. :D

Ausdrucklos said...

That movie is one big trip.Gasper Noe
and then irreversible as well.

D2 said...

All right, that's enough already! I should watch it in the next few hours!

The mind is such a strange place isn't it?

Great poem :)

D2 said...

@Antara : The mind can be quite unfathomable.
Thanks a lot. :)

Samadrita said...

What exactly was the frame of your mind when you sat down and wrote this particular poem of yours?
"Thad Beaumont: I thought you knew about this stuff?
Reggie Delesseps: I don't know about of any of it, nobody does. Except the Almighty, and He seems to be on sabbatical." (makes no sense I know but thought it would go with it) :P

Anonymous said...

too much of imagery,
no power
you actually got nothing to say or either you are trying to express something that doesn't belong to you...
but if one would drop this poem, it would create itz sort of nice

D2 said...

@Jingle Poetry : Thank you so very much. I will accept the award in a few moments! :D

D2 said...

@Atheist Dreamer : I have no recollection of what I was doing or thinking during that time! :-|

@Feeling Lioness : It speaks about real human darkness at a point when everything is a standstill. And of course it doesn't belong to me. These are not my own emotions!

Anonymous said...

my poems speak of real human darkness
put your specs on

and by the way I know what you had in mind while writing this:P

D2 said...

@Lioness : Firstly, I did not say "my poems". I was only referring to this one. And yes, it does. It's vague and surely you have inferred something else from it. As to you knowing what I had in mind while writing this, kudos to you if you do; you're quite a psychic. Secondly, who do you think you are? You may be well read but that does not make you an authority on the English language. So stop preaching around. Also, learn to behave yourself on an open media forum.

Anonymous said...

I didn't know you could be so cunning as to say that I am preaching around!

I was just saying what I others are praising you without being an authority on the English language, I am just saying what I seriously feel without being an authority on the English language...

as for English language...I am not that good

you are the one who should learn to behave yourself...this is just a blog...not even a speck in this universe...I wonder what are you so vain about..

and what have I said above thaat you are asking me to behave?I hAVE JUST EXPRESSED WHAT i FEEL ABOUT MYSELF..wotz 'bad behaviour' about that?

and haven't I said that this poem is nice? what else do you want? dishonesty?empty blabber?

Anonymous said...

these people are praising you without any authority, and so I can criticize you without any

Anonymous said...

who do I think I am? absolutely nobody

Anonymous said...

and what 'open media forum'?!
you are talking as if this is CNN
haw haw haw

D2 said...

Dear Lioness,
Avoid using even mildly offensive expressions such as "put your specs on". It shows you being vain.
About this being an open media forum, this is the World Wide Web. It's much bigger than CNN.
I don't need your praise. I don't need your presence.

Miss D said...

@ the lioness : I do believe healthy criticism is not a problem and I also believe he made no such comment on your compositions.

You somehow you still brought in that aspect, to quote you,
"my poems speak of real human darkness
put your specs on"

I hope you notice the comparison you made out of the blue, something that was definitely not called for as "your" poetry wasn't the topic of discussion here.

That is the kind of behaviour that sometimes pricks an arbitrary reader. Not that, you should care; but you see, we, the common good, unfortunately, do.

For we, the ones, who have no authority over English should respect what others opine.
And not to mention, that also imbibes in us an expectation that we receive similar behaviour.

That should be all.

Have a good day. :-)

'put your specs on' isn't vain unless one takes it to be that way
one has to be vain in order to see vanity(...and I might be vain...i might not be...who knows?...and you could also be never know)

what is wrong about mentioning that my blog seems to me real?
that was just a way of asking you to read my blog...rather than directly....since now it seemed you didn't mind dark human emotions and all the different colours...but you people took it in a different light
so sorry

and by the way I can't blame people...
we all like it fake, I suppose

and I am not reading this blog again
I don't like to follow modes and manners or anything...
I used to think this was an honest blog, but it got no weight
and the writer seems to be shallow in the end(although not that much)

and I don't believe in forced polite behaviour and i don't always conform to the said and done until I feel like it

Now that should be all

you've said ''you've read my thoughts.Please tell me yours''

and by the way I believe there are only two poets- Sylvia Plath and William Shakespeare
rest everybody in the world is blabbering,writing almost crap

D2 said...

@Lioness : Alright, Miss High-and-mighty,
Everyone writes crap except Sylvia Plath, Shakespeare and you. Right?
You've made your point. Now please get off this space.

Anonymous said...

you deleted my earlier comment
that's like a coward
here again ....
I never mentioned myself
all I said about myself that I feel I somewhat feel I am real..other than that I am crap

Miss D said...

@ the lioness : Oh no! That is not all that you said. Here is help:

"I never mentioned myself...
all I said about myself was that I feel I am somewhat real...other than that I am crap..(but not as much crap aas you fellas)".

Now let the masses be the judge about the question of vanity and behaviour.

D2 said...

@Lioness : This blog wasn't created so I could bicker with you. This space isn't meant for that. I can just as easily moderate all comments. Since I don't wish to do that, stop crapping around here. If you have anything to say that isn't substantial you are free to e-mail me after which I may choose to reply when I wish.

Blasphemous Aesthete said...

When hearts break, there are no sounds. So is the case with expectations. Yet, there is pain, and then, a void.

Nice post.

@Blasphemous Aesthete : It happens whenever something happens which numbs the senses.
Thanks a lot. :)
