Throwback Friday, Pendulum Lights, by Ivor Steven

My poem here today is from August 2018, and I am not able to explain the thoughts behind my words, except that some promised outcomes to me, were not forfilled and I felt emotionally let down and cheated …

Pendulum Lights

I was blinded

By the light

Losing the fight

I was silenced

By the noise

Standing without poise

I was attacked

By the crown

Breaking me down

I was sentenced

By the people

Hiding under their steeple

Hung out to dry

Nailed to a cross

Punished for my loss

Surviving, burnt my courage

I battled to be bold

Returning from the cold

I refound my faith

Nullifying what they stole

Purifying my lost soul

G’day, and welcome to my blog site. My name is Ivor Steven, I live in Geelong, Australia. I’m an ex-industrial chemist, and a retired plumber, and a former Carer of my wife(Carole), for 30 years, who suffered from severe MS. I Write poetry about those personal thoughts, throughout and beyond my life as a Carer. I’ve been blogging for over 2 years, and writing poems for 19 years. Of course a lot of my poems are about my favourite subject Carole, but since I’ve been blogging my writings have become quite varied, humourous, mystical, observational, and even a few monster/horror poems. View all posts by ivor20
