Ecstasy Eliminated by Jessica Ni Leacai

Slumber evades eyes, gateways grieving, deep
dark sunken sockets eating a hole in the head, with want,
wasteful waking hours, watching momentarial madness,
all left in a life, stressfully striken, tiredness tumbling over

If dreams dragged themselves to being, how helpfully they’d
treat the poisonous peril inseeded, corpse chained down,
destitute, paths policed, no entry, nor exits, escape, alight it,
tear it all asunder, actions mind none the matter, ashes ascend

Haste has held it’s breath,betraying every escalade,
one can climb, leveling the lateral beams, but balance,
need not nourish, neutrality, straddling seats on sideway fences,
fend onwards, outwards, obeying orders  socially shadowed

Adequate attributes asymmetrically placed, potential
progess regressed ruefully, mirrors in a manse miscere,
insistent intervals, asking anxiously amnesia to attend, a
friction of forgetfulness, for such survivor seeking serenity

  1. thee alliterations are a fire pulse flow
    near hammers with a grace of always sincerity of madness grace
    a holy balance most people are oblivious of

    as always, this poem is a
    total beauty of originality,yet intuitively honed & free

    & as always with your writing, reading the poem another & another & another time shows
    the natural depth & genuineness in ever changing ways
