I'm looking for forbidden places
maybe displacements, inconceivable states of being
Or hollow subject beyond seeing
followed by paths of secondaries thoughts.

There prowess have hidden its memories
left under cold, heavy stones
on subsequent nights of faded tones
Compared to over played melodies.

I'm seeking for a voided space
recondite, cancealed on cryptic layers
Where time has veiled its face hermetically, blinding eyes of betrayers.

There lays the verity of temples
uncloaked demystified sleeping
Coiled under vertebrae vapors
musing, probing, desirous, awaiting.

    Wow, Malu, and you said you are missing vocabulary! Well I guess you found it! 'uncloaked demystified sleeping' is not something you pick up on the street!
    Great poem, I salute you!

      Thanks Fred. Well, like you said this language is not found on streets. Perhaps on dictionary. I'm a student of the Gnosticism and this is where it comes from. Before was very secretive but with the internet not so much. One can find the language but it's meaning still left for any one of us to discover. This is why it is forbidden. You can only find it inside you. Within

        Malu, you know we shall all see these places again in time and when we do, our earthborn questions will become insignificant as, we relax into the comfort of our spiritual home, our place of re-birth. I think you describe our earthborn quest beautifully here.

          I'm replying again because I wrote something wrong on my other comment. I said it is more to be felt and not felled. Sorry about that. It is more to be felt than to be understood. Thanks Dusk. You understand it.

              "I'm looking for forbidden places"
              Once you find it, please open the entrance for me. Thank you.
