Who is this new you

who has just arrived

who summons me

like a siren on the rocks

like tinnitus pesters

constantly signals

who upon rocky shores

would destroy me

suck from my spirit

the emotional stuff

that sustenance within

who are you today

that would entice me so?

Tinnitus is no fun companion in life. But when this recreated apparition appears it is all worth it! But for whom? The enticed or the enticer or both? Excellent query posed.

here is poetry that doesn't always conform

galateus, arkayye, arqios,arquious, crypticbard, excalibard, wordweaver
