About Poet: I write as an outlet to make sense of my world and experiences. My purpose of sharing my words with others is in the hope that readers may identify with them insofar as what it means for them.
As you postulate inappropriate time and place to address this turpitude you ignorantly embrace when death is commonplace we hold our breath and brace for loss you cannot erase with attempts to reface through lies you interlace and blame you displace nothing will efface the lives you debase in your political disgrace
Gambling with juggernauts tiptoeing through quicksand progressively sinking losing command Unresolved impressions pouring in my head like overflowing vodka shots clamouring “be dead!” Escape or assimilation whispers crystal clear taunting confessions each presenting fear Resilience in throws of battle hardly the enemy living in surrender unknown destiny Warring with both sides pursue or flee? non-partisanship ironic tragedy
No poetic words expressing my disdain for heinous leadership authorised to reign Consumed with disgust I've no tolerance for ego driven ruin forged by ignorance A childish devil approved to command shall start a war none can withstand
And in your death my soul is tethered A presence yet unsevered Tragic loss not well weathered Empty in your absence Unspeakable resurgence And implausible resilience Suffering in silence As none can console Not within control An altering of the soul Never again to be whole And not meant to be Of this I will agree Although did not foresee The depth of change in me Expected not the gain That which was my bane Affords comfort in the pain As it assures me you remain And in your death my soul is tethered
Static in madness silence echoes in chambers of the mind lurid pasts haunt when living with ghosts sure fate assigned pervasive darkness fosters foreboding rendering blind lifeless limbs dare not protest steel chains that bind
In rushes winter At a furious pace Upon arrival Time slows Descending from grace Shrouding blue skies In blankets of grey Dark extends Cold creeps Shall not go away Icy fingers burrow Excavates my being Hollow spirit Light hides No longer seeing Emotionless shivers Inhaled with each breath As if frozen Air stills Yet smelling of death
Unfailing ache envelopes surrendered soul Regrets moments squandered Private thoughts unshared You were dearly honoured Longing to hear your voice; Silence Inconceivable to digest emptiness unallocated Since you have been at rest Grateful for you peace Although devastated paralysing grief Remaining in mourning Seeking no relief Profoundly altered in loss enduring Acceptance in being changed Oddly reassuring
