Some Would Say Cessation


Sublime images appear, racing along a searing white tunnel
A cannonball shot through stark nothingness
At the end, a gate stands tall an entryway with no walls
Surreality painted in black or white

A bit of info on this poem: Its my first attempt at writing an imagist poem, i based it off of two Ezra Pound poems.

It has deeper meanings to it than meets the eye.
Please, discuss it Very Happy i'd like to hear feedback

Death?
The white tunnel, like.. when you die?
Sublime images are what you are supposed to see, your life flashing before you?
You're the cannonball into nothingness when you die?
The gate, is the the gate to heaven(forum) XD

I don't get the last line Sad

people seem to have problems with the second line and the last line
try thinking of the poem as more than what you're seeing it as

i like your interpretation of the cannonball though
when i think of it like that it adds more emphasis to the third meaning of the poem (i think it has three, each deeper than the last)
bounce yay for discovering more about your own poem lol

Black and white...
So, complex things are made simple by the ideas of Life and Death!

White = Life
Black = Death

Nothingness = Black/Death?

Cannonball..
You are shot into black nothingness of death?
