Garden of Promises

Garden of Promises

written by: Maciej Pająk (Matthew)

 

If they promise you – the peculiar kingdoms
Where you will fit – as they say:
As a king and a tyrant
Ignore them
False friends they are!

If they promise you – immortality
Instead of a short but full life
Be aware
Eternal life without a shine
Is not divine
False friends they are!

Simple listen to me
The keys you need to reach
Are my offer
You will open the gates
Of the real garden of promises
Over there – your satisfaction
Will be found among the leaves
Of your desire
Just come in…
Please…

NOVEMBER 2021 AUTHOR OF THE MONTH at Spillwords.com
Maciej Pająk (Matthew) was born in 1978 in Poland. Poet, athlete, globetrotter. A maritime navigator by education. A graduate of Maritime University. Laureate of poetry competitions. He writes in Polish and English. He made his debut in 2018 with a volume entitled "A night so blue" and then he published in 2019 a volume entitled "Blue Hourglass". His works appear in anthologies and magazines. Music has also been created for many poems. Maciej describes his remarkable observations with exceptional sensitivity, sometimes even feminine delicacy from a male point of view. This has a remarkable effect of complexity and ambiguity in how the reader might perceive his poems. Looking into the past, contemplating the future, delight, duty, pride, contemplation of beauty, falling in love. Originality - this is the basic feature of Maciej's poetry.
