Two wells

Two wells,

One at the north,

The other south,

All that the mind conceives,

Falls or is tossed into one well,

Or the other,

None escape the adamant blackened gravity,

One a well of soulful goodness,

The other a black hole of soulless evil,

The question is to rise above or sink below?

Sink below the goodness,

And drip in delusional godliness?

To rise above the perceived evil,

Or to sink below and beat it at its game?

If hovering over or thrashing around in thy chosen well,

The soul might sink into the well beneath the well too, you see,

And then one becomes the other,

 Havoc inhabits conscience, Thunderous collisions within,

Soul is black or white?

It’s neither, rather just shades of grey,

Among the radiant colors that our eyes want to see,

Shades of grey in layers and patches,

In the end, no, as we spin and re spin

The water in both the wells remains murky if not marshier.

    [ Smiles ] Oh, this is rather nice!


  2. I hope, wherever my thoughts will land, it will be where you are when I try to find 🙂 Beautiful words Pranita, yet again the hint of the dark angel too 😉


  3. While there is rarely ever just black and white, I find shades of gray often too limiting so I love the lines:
    Among the radiant colors that our eyes want to see,
    Shades of grey in layers and patches,

    Great poem.
