"A Key For Margie"

I believe this one has been shared before. It's gone through a rewrite. Here 'tis one mo' 'gain. Thanks in advance...................peace!

"A Key For Margie"

seeds of vision rip a hole

where there should be love

slamming doors on forgiveness and sorrow

from the heavens a silhouette

floats like a windblown kite

hovering before mother, child and death

who stand hand in hand on a pulpit

squawking to a one man congregation

a congregation that lost their psyche years ago

in a crap game just outside of Hades

Hi oxe57,

Well i didn't read the prior version(s) of this but for something you define as free verse, I'm feeling a definite musical mood to it.

:lol: That'll teach her to play craps with the devil. ;)

Is there a chorus that comes next with Margie in mind?

I like this. :)

I like this too, but I struggle to understand the "seeds of vision rip a hole

where there should be love

slamming doors on forgiveness and sorrow"

"Seeds of what vision", I find myself asking.

I have the feeling that the answer to this question is in part two, but I'm afraid I am unable to discern it.

Thanks guys. I do find myself trying to be lyrical in my poetry and poetic in my lyrics. This poem is based on a conversation I had with a friend and their offspring regarding a deceased relative. I even threw myself into the mix as well. I've always been of the notion that in poetry if it feels good then leave it. In my lyricwriting I try not to use this delivery too much. Thanks again for the input..................peace!

"A Key For Margie"

seeds of vision rip a hole

where there should be love (filling the empty space with nothingness, hallowness, only the echo of what was in the past a vibrant, thriving entity)

slamming doors on forgiveness and sorrow (because after it's gone ... remembering is all we have?)

from the heavens a silhouette (the dark wings of the harbringer of fate?)

floats like a windblown kite

hovering before mother, child and death (the beginning for life from the mother ... life travelling on a path as a child ... then end of the path as death?)

who stand hand in hand on a pulpit

squawking to a one man congregation (the circle/cycle of life showing how each part has it's place ... and a person who no longer has the drive to listen?)

a congregation that lost their psyche years ago

in a crap game just outside of Hades

this was amazing! As i was reading it to myself i thought, "wow people on this site have some serious talent! I have a lot more to grow as a writer!"

"seeds of vision rip a hole

where there should be love

slamming doors on forgiveness and sorrow"

Those opening lines really rung in my ears more so than the rest. the feel im getting is a unwanted goodbye that you know is best for you but it still rips your heart in two to do it. Or an unrequited need for love throughout the course of a life...something along those lines was my first impression.
