55-Resistance

Symphonies of destruction play. We recoil in the darkest hole. And they hunt us. They are within us. Our rage turns into wails. Into tears. And they never hear. So we burn. We burn them all. We burn us all. They fade in the whirlwind of days. But we’ll always last, in the particles of air.


Song 12: Recess-Muse
Check Out G-Man

Hello, Maha.
I think this is beautiful. Distraught and troubling but beautiful too.... "we'll last, in the particles of air."

Burning bright! Happy weekend to you.

My 55 is up too!

This was so powerful and amazing.

When I saw the title of this post, all I could think about was the song Resistance by Muse. :)

all that sorrow but you leave us with a glimmer of hope, maha. this was frightening, desperate...

G-Man said...

Yes Maha...
NOTHING is ever completely destroyed!
Excellent 55 My Friend.
I hope that you do not always feel such pain and desperation, but you sure can write about it!!
Thanks for visiting, thanks for playing, and have a Kick Ass Week-End...G

Maha said...

I do not always feel such pain and desperation, but I surely cannot write about anything but it! I just cannot write normal, everyday-life stuff. I believe that pain has its own attractive dark magic that touches every heart. Come to think of it, if Romeo and Juliette eventually got married and lived happily ever after, would that play be immortal?

Brian Miller said...

You've captured the despair and turmoil so vividly in 55 words, Maha. Trapped in that miry pit, unable to escape, and the anger and rage turns.

Jessie said...

very powerful!
exceptional.

Sam Liu said...

Wow...I'm speechless, you've how captured conflict transforms a people, how it insights fear and then suppression and death in only 55 words. This was a joy to read.

So good! Those furies are inside us and outside us. So much energy.

Buzzard said...

You do have a tendency to go toward the dark side. There is magic in the light also. Not all love needs to be tragic to be immortal.

Wow! That's powerful...beautiful, and hard, too. Great 55!!

Cynthia said...

oh yes, the rage that turns into
these walls, erected by fear,
that burns with intensity.
almost but never truly destroying
us, because "we'll always last,
in the particles of air"
brilliant, maha.

Magpie said...

Wonderfully done, Maha. Suffering does seem to inspire great emotion.

Leslie said...
