    My ‘Humanity’s Habitat’
    Housing
    Haunted Hieroglyphics
    Voo-dooed & Hoo-dooed
    With incarnate incantations
    Producing palpitations
    Of, sometimes, joy
    And, sometimes, lamentations
    Springing from my meditative mind
    The thoughts, feelings, dreams & wishes

    >>>>But, rapid & rabid>>>>spirit possessed: LEGION
    *Luke 8:30*

    My Tainted Tablets
    Tooled with Life’s bitter commandments
    As each word and line vividly represents
    The anguish, plagues, and torments
    Of my troubled soul
    Cathartically made whole…..

    My Poisoned Papyrus
    Printed & etched in the angry, saddened ink
    Of misery and despair
    Yet minutely woven with a heavy-hearted but hopeful prayer>>>Insanity’s slayer

    The daily Death Of A Poet
    But, through the power of words
    (outwardly) Projected
    (inwardly) Reflected
    Connected
    Inspected
    Detected & Directed
    I become
    Poetically

    with each "death of a poet," there must be a "rebirth"

    Pains of disgust staggered me
    …enveloped me
    As uterine contractions
    Forced me from the belly of my desolation
    Through dilated walls of vaginal expanse
    From ovum(s) of hopelessness

    New Birth awaited me.
    Slowly…
    I journeyed down fallopian tubes
    Of manic distress
    ‘til immersed in the quiet serenity of
    Untapped happiness

    The amber richness of twilight’s last gleam
    Touched me
    …brazenly caressed me
    In the wee hours of my
    Solitude…
    Its brash rudeness softened my heart
    As waves of misplaced anger departed me
    Leaving me…destitute
    Devoid of the negativity
    Days long adventure bestowed upon me

    No longer does the disease of
    Emotional starvation
    Or mental deprivation
    Attack me
    No longer do tentacles of despair
    Reach out to me
    …haunt me
    With visions of
    “Never will be”
    Happiness

    With dawn’s early light {There is…}
    Rebirth.​


    AS ALWAYS, ENJOYED THE READ

    THE RIVER FLOWS.

    Thank you, Rich. And I'd love to read your piece. You'll have to give me the link, though. I can't do a search.


    @Baller: :hi:

    As always, you have the perfect match! Thanx!
