Dreams & Delusions…

(Overwhelmed by) Inarticulate Desire to Express

There are so many emotions
Coursing through me-
When I try
To express one,
I am wrapped up-
In another,
Then another,
An ocean of spirals,
Pulling me under-
Made from waves
Of Helices,
Tightening, Suffocating-
Indigo and violet swirls,
Coating my mind-
Our mixed screams
Personifying Pleasure,
Teasing Torture,
Drowning out my voice-
In the cackling din of darkness…



Edit: I was thinking about the images I used in this poem and wondering why I felt this extreme sense of deja vu,  and it occurred to me that I have used it before…

IMG_1426This is the cover to my jewelry design book that I painted 8-9 years ago…  This is, obviously, a simple expression of a rather complex idea.  Now I’m really fascinated, Was I subconsciously thinking about my design book while I was writing this poem?  Why has this particular image stuck with me for so long?  Trippy.

  1. Your poems are very expressive. Good job. I, again, am sorry for your loss.
