twisted

i turn to find my direction
the world shifts with me... and
i lose my focus
tunnel vision invades my eyes
and all direction is lost
shadows move and dance in my peripheral
causing my mind to go blind... and
i taste confusion in back of my throat


with each turn my head swims
the light fades in and out
and my eyes see spots
my head bobbles and shifts on my shoulders
i feel dizzy... and light headed as
anxiety and adrenaline rip
through my cerebellum
i taste panic in my mouth
 

all around me walls appear
smashing into my face
causing my eyes to water
eroding bricks bleed moss
slimy and wet... dripping
smearing my clothes and staining my skin
wretched thoughts build new walls
i taste fear on my tongue


i feel trapped...
each step leads to another blocked path
each turn to another wretched thought
the world shifts twists and swirls
i look to the sky and it spins into my eyes
black and white to color and back again
tunnel vision leads to blindness
closing off my mind... the light shines
i taste the death of my soul

Dano, you are the master of dark, deary, dismal imagery, and I love it because its from your soul and not for the effect of alarming your readers. This is the real thing and that's what makes it so powerful. " i feel trapped... each step leads to another blocked path each turn to another wretched thought" —WOW!! I know this experience. Bravo!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

there is a shallowness to poetry that you read that might be written just for the sake of alarming the readers... i would like to think or hope that my poetry is deeper than that... thanks as always for taking the time to read and comment

i guess because it happens to me too...

When power leads man towards arrogance, poetry reminds him of his limitations. When power narrows the area of man's concern, poetry reminds him of the richness and diversity of existence. When power corrupts, poetry cleanses.

John F. Kennedy (1917-1963) Thirty-fifth President of the USA
