Láthspell

This half heartedness of you, dull ink.
Fickle vessel, dim switch.
I embrace life for all it offers and I clench with both hands.
Sadness must reflect joy, the hand of friendship my mirror.
Do not target me with cloaked words, hinted malice.
They scratch the surface but do not penetrate, you lack the skill to pierce my armour.
They serve only to reinforce your distaste, the origin-less self doubt you harbour.
I refrain from retaliation, I am above such, my pen stays sheathed for now.
I have true purpose and gravity to contend with.
What I have written, I have written.
I am what I choose to be, flawed but true to the conviction I hold.
My energy focuses on that which I value in the time that remains, his numbered days my contorted clock.

    I see you in this line so clearly, because you really do demonstrate this. Don’t ever change. Your ink shines, gleams and over shadows the dull.

    ‘Cloaked words…’ Hmmn, used so often as a way of trying to pull people down with passive aggressive statements and actions. This person and/or people you speak of, they will never be as strong as you in any conviction they choose to hold.

    A true sense of integrity throughout. You are armed with your heart and words. No need for anything else.

    In others words…I loved it. 🙂
