morbid brainwaves
on painless suicide
prancing inside this
the blood on
my cold nape

i solicited
a quiet
meditation on this
total misunderstanding
of myself and mind

so silly i’ve let a
demeaning imagination
crumple my neat bed

so silly i’m lethally soft
so silly i’m literally alone

    The last two lines close it really well.

  4. Nice one, literally alone (all one) ~ Thanks! Who am I writing to? And I do so love to write…. no matter to whom ~

    this is incredibly sad but greatly expressed

    Loved the last two lines! Thanks for checking out my blog before, I really appreciate your poetry. I’ve had a demeaning imagination before as well, but better days eventually came; I live in the midst of them now.

    What a powerful piece!

    How “silly” of me thinking I was the persona telling those lines. Your poem transforms into to a figure similar to mine. I can relate to it really well. Wee done.

  9. Profound & quite lovely. Great piece!

  10. I have nominated you for the One Lovely Blog Award – please follow the link to find out more 🙂

  11. I liked that poem too. The last two lines are particularly good. There isn’t enough poetry about being silly.

  12. Good poem! It seems easy but it is not. It seems sad but it is not, because there is rhythm so there is a cose connection to life.

  13. haha, on the subject of typos, of course I mean close not cose.
