Wordle #131 “November 28th, 2016”

Week 131.png

A moribound wave suckles at my veins.
Too many nuances to sedate,
emotions both pivotal and redundant.
We have been here many times
and yet each new birth must be named.

Stars jaunt episodic beneath
a swaddling of ashen wool.
We are not broken, at least entirely.
Maps catch fire beneath a callous wind.
I no longer remember the origin
of these implausible dreams.
At least my memories
have not yet forgotten me.

The moon is my reference.
Her slight figure, the endearment
on which my infamy is tested.
“Do your beliefs cripple or serve?”
Always the same question,
always the same dilemma.

I defy the axis around which I spin,
my tears so much wash and bother.
Does your plasma bend or persevere?
From one Penny Dreadful to the next
I leap without ever grasping the plot.
Still it thickens and I feel myself,
at most, unworthy of the subterfuge.

Does your stelliferous heart
burden or does it merely fend?
Pain cannot be bridled, bottled or bought.
Will it catch you unaware,
a spindle, a catapult,
an archive of mute, intangible horrors
or will you examine tenderly
the outraged orphan within?

  1. So many evocative, powerful lines, but I am struck by: “At least my memories/ have not yet forgotten me.” and “‘Do your beliefs cripple or serve?’/Always the same question,/ always the same dilemma.”
    As always, an emotional roller coaster ride. But, a ride worth taking.

  2. great use of the wordle – love how the “story” unfolds – each word carefully used to imbue the essences – and as usual, your lines are stellar Yves – you drawn images that are seductive, even if dark

  3. “emotions both pivotal and redundant.
    We have been here many times
    and yet each new birth must be named.”
    “an archive of mute, intangible horrors
    or will you examine tenderly
    the outraged orphan within?”

    It is the folly of humanity to name everything, even that which has no name, the orphaned wind that blows through the electricity of our brains.
