    Poem: Shadows of Indifference

    Shadows of Indifference by Jacqueline Wu

     

    A night, midnight blue, one with no stars

    An eye peering through the opening, clouds reflected in gaze

    And blank stares, pearly white- drenched in tears

     

    The pendulum’s swinging, completing its endless cycle

    Hushed whispers ripple the surface, then back again

    An unfathomable abyss and death’s glare upon us with wings of black silk shadowing

     

    A mirror with many faces, broken shards blemishing beauty

    A girl, no two. Nameless, shamelessly looking. Dreaming-

    As the sweet, soul sucking vortex redeems her again

     

    Walls encroach upon the silent dreamer as she remembers

    Transparent glass walls that cuts us with its sharp frame and protects-

    Unshackled but made captive, the dragon’s strength wanes from toil

    As two wrongs aren’t made right with Chaos king and darkness spilling

     

    It isn’t tempest from which I hide, or fire that chars my flesh

    Nor is it chilled autumn morns, or even emotion in flashing thunder and wet torrents

    Or love or hate, illusions conceived by the human mind

    No, it’s indifference, rather ignorance in all its selfish forms

     

    Colorless with grey hued skies and shapeless mist delusions to cold eyes; tasteless

    Silent as despair, undiscerning as the raven veers towards temporary paradise

    Poison dripping from the black tongue that blots and burns

    For the fair rose with its delicate shades of pink-

    Is nothing but deceit.
