USURPED FROM

Folder: 
POESIE HERESY

 

Usurped from

            my serene

              bubble

 

I am. . . . . .I am. . . . .I am. . . .

 

             thrust into

             the pitfall

             of pestilence

 

the defeatism         a frustration

 

     & fear

            of failure

 

        tranquility

                fallen

           over cliffs

              onto jagged rocks

 

             swept away

                in the

                     salt water

               of the ocean

 

Reason—rationale                   disappears

 

             into

       solitude

 

          I survive

            the fall

 

    a few fractured bones

            internal bleeding

                        but I still rise

 

          attempt

             to claim victory

but it is not so easy

 

              trudging thru

                         eternity

 

                 every evening

                 every afternoon

 

rise to darkness

set to light

 

rise to darkness

set to light
