evocative muse

ever present dream

the ever-present dream
in sleep & wake
discovering
a mistake

a shake
of the head
clears nothing

the radio
plays
the same song
day & night

turn it off
and it plays
in the head
damn
nuisance
creating
an ache

that

splash

splash
bathe your mind
in
unfocused fusion
letting thoughts
drop
by
drop
flowing far from
your mind

controlling contemplations
realizing
there is
common ground
between
the left & right side
of the brain

repeating

restoration

lost
in a warp of time

a zone unfamiliar
but so perfectly real

stolen from someone else’s path
wrapped up in a cloak of grey

the field beckoned
to be walked upon
to be laid on
whisking up memories

that tormented the heart
that clung to the brain

it’s so cold

 

it’s so cold
beyond a red nose
or rosy cheeks

it’s so cold
that the bones feel frozen
brittle
breakable
it’s so cold
breathing is unbearable

it’s so cold
that the limbs stuck in one place
shivering
shaking
slowly stiffening

it’s so cold

bottomless pit

a bottomless pit
of breath and clarity
a bottomless pit
of reflections

the addictions
the contradictions
the attractions
the abstract
the construed

less confusing
when broken into pieces
perplexities
sink to the bottom
and the elucidations
rise
