Whenever and in whomever I die

There remains a trail as impermeable

As blood spewing from a wounded mouth

A film heedless in its application

But indelible against the clock’s

Carnivorous turnings.


There will be nothing left to fill me

Should your carnal absence

Deprive my sole occupation

All I have ever wanted

Can be surmised by the company kept

When there is no one around to witness.

In the dark I am always and never

God and monster, nightmare and aurora

A contradiction same as everyone else.

Unrelated to the post

I have been having a hard time writing lately,  as a result of overwhelming stress I think I have switched off or tuned out emotionally for the moment. Did I mention our car broke down again from another problem? We have no choice now but to buy another.

      1. Sometimes it feels like one needs to schedule relaxation doesn’t it? 🙂 Hoping you’ll find your balance. Me, I’m going to try to fit in a yoga class once in a while.

      2. Yoga is a life-saver for me. Depression would’ve taken over if not for yoga. I have been doing it since I was 12. I do it several times a week but I want to find a way to get it in everyday again. I have even taught yoga

  1. i think on some level we all have a little god and monster in us…i touched on that in my piece the other day…our circumstances often dictate which comes to the surface…more than we do…

  2. Wonderfull and powerfull poe, I loved the image of carnivorous clocks, and I liked the ending very much!
    I am very aorry about the car and hope everything gets sorted!

  3. I hope the stress levels reduce quickly and your luck changes – its odd how sometimes every bad thing seems to happen at once! Sending positive vibes your way my friend! 🙂
