Milk of Nepenthe

I have been writing poetry, fiction and short stories for many years and have completed a book of poems. I also enjoy comedy writing.

Milk of Nepenthe

Milk of Nepenthe

They take me to the sky without my permission

Abducted, bright lights and blinded vision

Tall beings, Man they called themselves

I am just a man kind, modified like a good sold on shelves.

A Vale of ignorance covers my face

As the God beings knowledge totally out pace.

I see things I cannot comprehend

Things that makes religion obsolete and come to an end

My mind cannot accept this new reality

Please put me back to my mortality

Oh I wish to forget all what I have seen

Unable to understand these supreme beings


Are they Jesuses?

Are they the beings that come to different nations as a Messiah?

Who will I tell of this experience?

Everyone will call me liar.

I can’t bare these memories. I need the milk of Nepenthe

I will drink the milk until my memories of this day fades away

Putting me back to my simple mind, the way I wish to stay

Something’s are just better not known

A simple life, a lie life, mankind walking on this ground.

I knew there was a reason I never liked milk! Another out of this world piece, and I liked it...

You have a great imagination and this makes this poem very intriguing.

This one made me think

Well done. But perhaps we cannot go back.
