hurdling & ghosts visiting

cruel fragments of chronicles—

flashing randomly, hurting me.



i realized this evoking.


too intense,

these silly & pathetic strikes.

i won’t be dragged.




impatience skews inspiration,

anxiety batters,

i’m brawling & wrestling.


rescue me, rescue me,

i can’t die today!


i’m moving, waving, flapping,

disregarding the sirens inside my mind,

returning from a daze.


at last—


i am home again, winning.

    the line “impatience skews inspiration” rang true with me; I relate it to writing. I must let ideas sit and mell, or not, for long periods. I’m not sure how you are using or refering to it but thanks for reminding me.
