Magpie Tales: Draining Out of Life




Blood
Creeps in veins
And retrieves
Those hearts as they beat
They drain out of life

Hollow silhouettes
Crossing the light of the sun
As they pass
A thousand thoughts
A thousand feelings
A thousand words
Reduced into one
Muffled screams
Silenced by fear
So turn a deaf ear
And don't say a thing

Feel the innards of your soul
Crumbling down
And you try to hide
You are dead inside
Going through life
But not living it
A ghost you've become

And in those shades
I perpetually wait
For the voids
To be reassumed 
For the dead
To be exhumed

  7. I loved that Maha....I felt the words the same way when I saw that image, like a clenched and pained fist....

  10. Inhuming silence and exhuming words....freeing the weightlessness of our being through the biology of our emotions.
    Life asks us to deal with it hoping at the end we grow in its wisdom.

  11. Exhumed and assumed are very onomatopaeic (sp?) like a great tolling bell
    Like the little rhymes thrown in

  16. Please forgive my tardiness...I have been on two trips and my son was just married...Delighted to be able to return the magpie visit and to read your work!
    Such a grand mix...of that which leaves us...that which enters us. For there is so much more isn't there? I loved the way you took us through the path....
