Parting Ways

parting ways,
a way of life,
i have someone waiting here
counting countless voids,
separating wishes.

parting ways,
the way inside
another lie,
another price,
i have something hidden here
in the walls of Troy:
seven hundred lashes.

parting ways,
erasing days,
a way of climbing
throughout the haze,
tired of prisons wrought of tears,
live collecting joy,
a choice:
my destiny defined by action,
all these acts unbound by hate,
inferiority a memory.

swallowed the lies on my plate
only to expel them yesterday.

parting ways,
a way of life,
i have someone waiting here
counting countless voids,
separating wishes.

you're very talented with words. i especially admire your use of latin and gaelic, (lol) of which you send me speeding to the "the free dictionary" online. and to me that is the point of writers. to compel readers to look up stuff in order to fully understand, if that is possible, that which is written.
