Plaster Casts.

By Mute Serenade

Through the glow, the individuality of one
Has sent them all astray..
The warmth beneath you lilac visions and haloed head
Brings comfort to some
And chaos to others
For in exception you burn
And let yourself alone.

Through the glow, the individuality of you
You willingly become the scapegoat
The hate beneath their eyes of rage and callous words
Brings assurance to some
And tears to others
for, in exception, they want you to burn
And Let you all alone.

Through the glow, your individuality's tried
But alas you surely fail
The delicacy beneath your dashed vision and low hung head
Brings remorse to some
Defeat to others
For in exception you're feared
So they left you all alone.

Through the glow, your individuality's left behind
As they finally understand
The sympathy beneath contempt and remorse for what is done
Brings disillusion to some
Disarray to others
In exception, You're remembered
Or you would have never been alone...
Plaster Casts of Perfection...

    Wow...thought provoking and wonderfully put together with just enough left for the reader to fill in that it will speak to their own interpretations very well. For me, this seemed like a religious piece, but I think there are many many things you have left this open to be to someone. Love it! Ciao, T/S Scholar

    The including of certain words and detail here , Made this one as breathtaking as I had hoped. When I read this , I not only felt it , I breathed in its wisdom. Remarkable.
