A Quickened Death

A Quickened Death
PUBLISHED wFOR OPENLINK NIGHT FOR
dVERSEPOETS THIS TUESDAY
NIGHT IN JUNE!
I don’t know anything
Most certainly ~ nothing!
Feelings drown out my
day
Thrown down & tossed
out
Ragged myths of farewell
bliss
How to step up and fight

Carry on
Didn’t you hear me?
Hours of the day
mount
Sullen moments
belie
My solemn
dread
the calm before a storm
I don’t know anything
Most certainly ~ nothing!
Uncertain future plays over
again
and
again
Too much to control with too much
waste
  Fast forward as I’m in a
rush
Meaning escapes me ~ I place my
 hope
in a quickened death
Carry on
Didn’t you hear me?

  2. My first poem as I awake today is such a powerful one, and affecting. I can relate to such thoughts as asking for death to hurry up and get it over with because life has become too much to near. Written about them myself. But not like this.

    Extremely moving, Joanie!
