the Four Towers

Postby rhymarhyma » Mon May 26, 2014 10:44 pm

From the earth to the sky, I fly high on borrowed hours

Illuminating showers of light...the Four Towers

Lighting up the shadows of night where darkness hides

Four towers...four walls...defending all four sides...

The first tower is the greatest as it rises high above

Cherry blossom trees, my private geisha offers love from within...where you and I are alive... begins to thrive...five, seven, five...

Haiku echoes silently from the heart of the young

I'm still a rhyme unwritten...I'm still a song unsung

but I am loved by the fire of the midnight sun

Above all else, I must guard Tower One...

The second tower stands reminding me of things seen and things unseen

Some of these things are beautiful...some sad, and some obscene

In between division is a vision of today

It matters not the wars I've fought, all that matters is the grey

The grey sometimes turns blue when I close my eyes tight

Tomorrow can't come soon enough, to end this dismal night

The fight I fight is with myself...yet to this, I am blind

Sometimes Tower Two...I find...can be oh, so unkind...

Alone in the third tower, I find myself locked away

Chains and bars and wounds and scars...I blame my yesterday

I blame it, but can't change it...regret is but a lie

Blurry rainbow lights...a final teardrop says goodbye

Imprisoned, I am a prism, in which the Light shines through

Running toward tomorrow, for tomorrow's promised new

I can run away, but I cannot run away from me

so until forever comes, I'll not be free from Tower Three...

I stand before the shores of tower number four

Teeth gnashing, steel slashing...I am witnessing a war

Wave after wave of armies of the dark

I feel the demons bite...I hear the devil dogs bark

The growling and the howling, it seems to never cease

The multitude of angels try and put the tower at peace

Each side wants this tower to be theirs forevermore

The battle rages on...the battle for Tower Four...

Lord, I hear you as you whisper...I am not on my own

so please defend these towers...I cannot do it all alone

The towers that I speak of, I put in your control

the Four Towers of Myself...heart, mind, body and soul...
