Daily missive for Wednesday the 27th of November.~by Peter Forster


 

 

Daily missive for Wednesday the 27th of November.

I am the tingle
In an open wound
Every nerve raw
The tiniest sound
An assault
On the ears
The expectation
Of ending
An explosion
Of colour
A myriad of burning suns
An optic nerve
Irradiated
By the blindingly obvious
A reference to die for
In the conversation
Of a poet
Of little consequence
Unable to distinguish
Between one rhyme and the next
Darkened by doubt
Someone caught
Between breaking in
Or out
Of a life in death
Splintered uni-verse
Macrocosm
Of disbelief
As a slow drip-feed
Of self-loathing
Is drained in exsanguination
Devoid of the spirit
To break free
In a bloodless coup
Displaced in
A boundless void
An endless despond
Lost in essence
Of the familiar
