Emotions emerge...


The tears start to boil
in cauldron
inside,
pull the skin out,
create a phantom
nonexistence
parts
out of comfort zone
alone,
not holding hands
barefooted
sometimes
on hot
asphalt
like in childhood
(did not stop at that time,
anticipating
the fun –
a body followed soul-
proceeded!)

I rate the hail
at highest scale,
pour the storm
on white field
to pedal
thru rows of
horizontal lines,
maybe these zombies
become alive…
how I then survive
such a battle…

Those words have
so many meanings
for one life…
type them with
fingers,
connected
to heart,
vena amoris
delivers a spark…

triggers: sight, 
sounds, smell
activate insight
in our mind,
drill a new pathway,
new thoughts,
new chance to align
with nature
your heart-
get up!
get your base
fire up!

  1. Yes, words do take on many meanings throughout our lives. I remember going barefoot on asphalt (ouch!), popping tar bubbles with our toes...
    Thank you.

  4. It's funny--I see several have commented on the "barefoot on hot asphalt" line and that's the one that caught my attention, too. We seemed to be able to withstand so much when we were kids and now--call me whimpy.

  7. Very vivid! I love the flow here of collating thoughts with verbs so befitting their place on horizontal lines.

  9. Sometimes we have to be so strong as to not let emotions control us.

  12. Great stream of consciousness in this, it pours over the lip of the poem and pushes us along with it.

  14. This is an open mic night piece for sure, short hard hitting and full of attitude. There were some unforgiving lines, and that last paragraph about the triggers....yeah, triggers, wonderful. Great work and thanks for coming out!!!
