A loop that holds,
Holds my sanity
And still some push
Push me to the limit
They think I can hold
Hold, whatever is thrown at me
But when I snap and hurt them back
Their wrist get sore
Their mind goes blank
Their thoughts, like myself breaks…
Their numbness, with my severed body
Is the only thing that, remains….
Linked to dVerse Poetics. Sarah is hosting. The theme relates to mindfully writing about something in one’s hand.
Unwavering I stood, to face the fears
Vanquished, being the conclusion
Wary, I was now being left alone
Xenium of fear, by the darkness
Yielded, under pressure it flowed
Zizz, of my parents finally broke
Linked to dVerse. Lillian is hosting with alphabet sestets. I don’t have to tell, but it’s not a great memory of my childhood.
The heart, scrunched
The eyes, drip
The chains, rattle
Naked skins, scrape
Commondants and captives, shriek
The chimney, sizzle…
Another day, Auschwitz
Linked to dVerse. Bjorn is hosting with a call for poems using onomatopeia (I know drip and scrape aren’t onomatopoeia, apologies)
Forsaken, the reasoning
Lionised, rambling words
Foreboding, cheering fanatics
Lie their utmost.
Lie yourself silly,
Tell the lie and honor the devil…
As the potentate declare,
“Cowards lie many times before they rest”..
Linked to dVerse Poetics. Jilly is hosting with the theme of giving twisted adages.
The therianthropy of Devil
A cats’ gaze
Boat of life
Moving at a snail’s pace
My peripatetic soul
Bearing a mammoth baggage.

It sees, but doesn’t absorb
Reflecting closeness as it is
It’s unable to discern
Receiving everything and everyone
It doesn’t touch, yet it connects
To a reality, ever-changing
Quantifying the effect of time
Showcasing nakedness, baring it all
It proclaims without uttering..
Its silence occasionally deafening,
A hefty thwack hitting it’s body
A cracked mirror, a bleeding fist.
Linked to dVerse Poetics. Bjorn is hosting with the theme of mirrors.
