Day Thirty Eight: 30th August 2012

MORPHING

Dreaming of a girl-man,
Naked, Morphing,
And a dim laneway,
Endless walking.
Searching ideas, thoughts,
Categorising,
Labelling,
Getting organised,
Panicking.

Pheww!
Its only a dream…

Day Thirty Seven: 29th August 2012

NIGHT CRY

A foreboding cry
Disturbs my slumber,
Breathing erratically
I look at the murky darkness.
Listening to a thumping heart,
Beating within a heaving chest,
That is mine…
As was the night cry.

Day Thirty Six: 28th August 2012

LEAVING

I am leaving today,
And outside the blustering wind
Reminds of yesterday
And arguing,
Loud, Angry voices,
Accusing.
Now the magpies warble,
Reminding me of afterward
And forgiveness,
A  gentle touch
And warm intimacies.
I am leaving today,
For a while.

Day Thirty Five : 27th August 2012

REVERBERATING.

Neck Relaxing,
Vertebrata crunching,
In quick succession,
Reverberating in my ears,
The cycle restarts,
Tense again.

Day Thirty Four: 26th August 2012

THE WAIT

Sitting silently, patiently,
Time passes, slowly,
Sun turns to shade,
Then back again,
A breeze gently rustles,
Billowy clouds cast shadows,
Voices rise, then fall,
Punctuating the still air,
Traffic ebbs and flows,
Faces float past,
Sometimes smiling,
And I wait.

Day Thirty Two: 24th August 2012

A dankness stirs at my nostrils,
Dampness tickling my nose,
Putrid, it tugs my memory.

Fruitlessly my mind searches
For a fading consciousness,
A recollection of Death.

Day Thirty One: 23rd August 2012

A SOUL

A wandering Soul,
Buffeted, Injured,
Thirsty for Light,
Hungry for Redemption,
Thwarted by Power,
Broken.

Day Thirty: 22nd August 2012

VOID

Outside the wnd rages,
Heavy clouds scuttle,
So too the shadows
Of my mind,
Evading dark thoughts,
Of yesterday,
Of sadness,
A void,
Seeping.

Day Twenty Nine: 21st August 2012

THE MASK

Surrounded by whiteness,
A mask descends,
Powerless, I’m  ensnared,
Breathing difficult,
In..out…in..out,
…must escape,
…blackness.

Scattered voices blur,
Disjointed movements,
In…out…in…out,
…blackness.

Floating heads,
Bleary faces,
In…out…in…out…
Whiteness again.
