My mind an endless corridor
My diamond heels clinking on the marble floor
My inner self
Walking past each and every shelf
Made out of glass
One of the shelves I couldn't pass
The book covers were made from pearls
And decorated with silver swirls
Through the silk pages I flicked
Until a new page I picked
With my pen, ink of liquid peacock feathers
I scribbled your name with golden letters
Putting it back on the shelf, I looked at the blue flames
Of the candles burning the handkerchiefs that no longer had names
The poem is very symbolical. To help you decipher it I'll give you what these things symbolise :
1. Corridor - symbol of direction, which will inevitably lead to the desired goal.
2.Diamond - spiritual power, committment
3.Marble - clarity, self-control and stability both physically and emotionally
4.Glass - invisible protection, but also brittle, unsteady one.
5.Pearls-perfection and incorruptibility; it is a symbol of long life, hidden knowledge, and it is highly feminine
6.Silver - mirror to the soul, helping us to see ourselves as others see us.
7.Silk - strife for respect and appreciation, despite no valid achievements in your life, trying to compare yourself with other people
8.Peacock Feather - immortality
9.Ink - thoughts or decisions being permanent, irreversible, or serious. Thoughts about the finality of relationships, agreements, plans.
10.Gold - knowledge, spirituality and a deep understanding of the self and the soul
11. Blue Flame - core of the very strength and energy.
12.Handkerchief- When lovers sent handkerchiefs to each other it meant their love had faded
