with a singular zeal

brute opportunity


drilling through logic and brain…

truth’s symbiotic force

took us on this visionary’s quest

letting our  need of surrender


while settling for

a  teeth-clenching renewal…

we slog nightly

through our unresolved dissonance

we’ve stepped beyond mere energy

to hostile thought and action

kindled mistakenly

by our human flaws


violation as tenderness

celebration as agony

dissonant chords, melodic

whisper their essence

soft-stirring through ash

of a once molton core…

is it enough to gash

this skin of broken heel?

on sharpened rock, it beads

gracious pain

through each nerve’s ending

leaving me unable

to step      away…

will this dawning urge

throb through as guilt’s mourning?

pulsing beyond its muffled

future polarity

i watch helplessly

as it fades

 captured by errant riptides

of cruelty

its essence

has swept and

vanished into

dark arms

of a midnight sea

About lindalou5150

as exercise or exorcism, i write...for the eyes of others, for my eyes and heart only, for the love and the rage, i write...to release the gamut of emotion...to tell the truth and say what's often thought but not written...
