Speaking in Poems

I. Clogged

The tap is dry

The well is full

The pipe is clogged.

II. Well

Let down the pitcher

Draw from my well

Water as sweet as wormwood.

 

III. Cold Sun

It is sunny

How is it that I am shivering?

Sadness is the sun

And pain is the blanket

Wrapped around my soul.

IV. Fruit Basket

A basket full of love

Balanced delicately

On the heart

A feast left untouched

Luscious fruits left rotten.

  1. The gloom’s not only thick and poignant, its REAL! Plus, sarcasm’s greatly enthroned…… alive, breathing, awake and ruling oh so supreme! ‘Water as sweet as wormwood’?! Really?! Eew! LOL

    This concept grabs and I love the arrangement of the poem in itself! The imageries and wordings are simply wondrous to say the least….. wickedly concocted, deep and quite insightful but still yet, they boast of something I can’t quite place my fingers upon and in a very good way too, I must add! Bottomline, this is ingenious and you just bested yourself as you always do! I am in awe! Kudos Doc, keep speaking in poems, prose……..just speak! You were born to do this and I contest not! Cheers!

        Plus, I just meant its an unusually composed monsterpiece! Pretty jazzed up, with such loveliness that transcends the ugliness of the situations being described! You totally carved out absolute beauty from gore! See where am coming from now?! *straight face* LOL

      1. No dear, it was completely in error. I didn’t even realise it until yesterday. You know the kind of things that happen when you have your smart phone in hand and are dosing off and doing things you don’t know you are doing…..I guess that must have been what happened. Haba, how can I even begin to contemplate unfollowing Topazo? Hmmm. Mbanu. Impossican’t! Lol!
