The Fall Of Solomons Temple (3, 6, 9)

In the bottom of the sea
There lived a man
Who was not meant to be
His heart was heavy
And his tears were dry
For, all his life he longed the sky


And it was not so fair
That he should be
The one who lived beneath the sea

For in all the years
Of his watered pain
He long to feel the pouring rain

For it was not like
It could not be
For the rains themselves
Came from the sea
But how to find
A way to land
To walk the earth
Like a common man

For if all his treasures
Were buried twice
He would give them all
Just to feel the light

But to breathe the air
And to know its taste
Would he then be
One who long(s/ed) for space?

If the sea were gone
And the world stood bare
Would his soul then seek
Water once wast there?

And if rain did fell
Wet uponst his head
Would he once more long
For seas watery bed?

In a world of silence
Beauty is the sound
In the world of air
Be there love for ground

When a heart feels lonely
Blessed is an others grace
Whilst amongst the crowd
Is such blessing space

We open our eyes
Through the way we fall
In a life of nothing
Find we (the/A) love for all

In a lyrical silence
Is the sound of sin
Like the world around us
We fail to see within


For within the sea
That was lost to mind
Was everything there is to find

Fortune stares
At the bleeding heart
As the end begins the start

Our wounds are closed
As to see them bleed
As we create on that we feed

It is thrice
Then four
Then thrice again

We are (were) less
And (As) more
Then we were (are), again


In the temple
Solomon cries
Water to his heart
And he dies
All alone
So the world will start

If I were gifted then I would say,
that I came by here on this day,
Not knowing what is invented,
in a second story you've presented.

But I'm glad I did stop by and read it...

Made me think about Dante's Divine Comedy(inferno) but from the view point of a watcher, as "Solomon" wanders around Plato's cave.

Hey good luck on winning writer status

I was reading the other one but liked this one better so I stopped reading on it. Fiction tends to wear me down quick... the visualizing and comprehension to follow it of course I could turn my narrator on and be lazy... I really admire the people and staff that read all the submissions every month, I know I couldn't do it.
