“Vikings” Theme Song: Emotive Poem

vikings

Gongs bang as vibrations seep in…deep tones.

Where do I dive into deepness?

A whisper-is it evil? Or soothing?

Confusion. I want more. Give me more.

No. Not if it’s dark or evil.

If he had a heart-is he a vampire?

Remember deep water, drowning victims,

dead lying on the floor in the video.

But me? I am not a killer-except of verse.

Give me more.

More what? Music? Friends? Spirit Interactions?

Don’t ask for those, darkness comes.

Keep the shadows at bay.

Pray darkness away.

Is there love here, or only emptiness?

Vibrating, beating, a heart’s beat.

Live again.

Life after death. Rejuvenate after the vibrations.

Give me more… Life.

I want a tomorrow.

Seasons pass as changes abound

Spring lopes in like a deer

flowers blooming

pollen looming

sinus never feels clear.

Summer sun wakes the birds, I fear.

Morning song is screeching

bury my head

deep in the bed

pillow drowns the chirping.

Crispy autumn leaves are falling

Bare trees reveal cold dread

dried worms are found

birds mute their sound

remember coming dead.

Visions swirling inside my head

Snow mounds growing higher

What’s that I hear?

A song of cheer?

Writing time’s come around
