    Hooks In The Sand

    Hooks In The Sand

    Cast a line in to the deep,
    High above the angels weep,
    Peering idly, earthen ledge,
    Gazing from the Ocean’s edge.
    Draw the black twine back to land,
    Hook drags lightly through the sand.
    Empty metal, torn through lip,
    Blood drips softly, sharpened tip.
    On the line you’ve used no bait,
    And yet your mind’s still filled with hate.
    Curse those evil, wicked fish,
    Dare they not be what you wish.
    Broken dreams that you devised,
    Wandering sheep; your own demise.
    Believing what’s just televised,
    Entire life absorbing lies.
    A wretched beast, your own creation,
    And yet the will…to scream damnation.
    For it wasn’t the hook, for it wasn’t the lake,
    This was your own breed, your own fatal mistake.
    You glamorize the evil, you idolize its face,
    When only just tomorrow, new hate’ll take its place.
    When the earth is changed into a humid dungeon,
    In which Hope like a bat
    Goes beating the walls with her timid wings
    And knocking her head against the rotten ceiling;
    When the rain stretching out its endless train
    Imitates the bars of a vast prison
    And a silent horde of loathsome spiders
    Comes to spin their webs in the depths of our brains,
    All at once the bells leap with rage
    And hurl a frightful roar at heaven,
    Even as wandering spirits with no country
    Burst into a stubborn, whimpering cry.
    — And without drums or music, long hearses
    Pass by slowly in my soul; Hope, vanquished,
    Weeps, and atrocious, despotic Anguish
    On my bowed skull plants her black flag.

    It's meaning makes itself clear if you read into it.
    When the earth is changed into a humid dungeon,

    Yea, I know but it's rather cool how you can use a rather mundane pastime and dig deeply and paint a much more sinister picture with it. Awesome poem.

    Great , we have poet too. Nice poem
    I regard the theatre as the greatest of all art forms, the most immediate way in which a human being can share with another the sense of what it is to be a human being. -Wilde

    Cool
    Very good, I love the dark style. I think "in to" is spelled together, though I could be wrong.
