you're reading...
Poetry, serious poem, spoken word


This is another brain dump, friends… for those who don’t know – I call these types of poems where I am trying to process something that’s going on in my life “brain dumps” … just dump all my emotion out on the page.  So yes, it may be poetic and it may still resonate with the reader, but it is therapeutic in nature, more for me than for you…. But that being said, it’s Tuesday, so it’s OpenLinkNight at Dverse … So read my piece, comment on it, then go over and indulge your poetic fantasies with this wonderful group of poets!


Heart in stasis


shocked immobile

by news that my love is

again in the care of the medic

this overwhelms like the swell

of tsunamis on emotion’s coastline

not sublime at all

waves of pain stand big and tall

overpowering fragile heart

unable to call for help

in the shadow of the wave

Run! Run! Goddammit, RUN!

This is not the time for fun

and games, this is serious shit

Hearing this again racks soul with pain

but electric paths don’t move from brain

to feet – heart rooted to the spot

Unable to move, my soul cannot

process this – let her be alright

And come home again to be wrapped up tight

in the arms of my love…

But for now I need to move

can’t let fear paralyze me

Gotta escape this monstrosity

of fear that wants to crash around me

with the power of the world’s worst tsunami

I need to keep radiating positive energy

and not succumb to the lure of negativity

She’s gonna be fine, just you wait and see

and once again be smiling and happy

and not connected to yet another i.v. –

please, my love … come back to me!

  6. Jesus Robert, I feel your pain in this, your frustration, your lamentation of wanting to do everything, anything, one thing and feeling as though you can do absolutely nothing. But that is not true, you can do two simple things, you can be there for your love, if not in body – in spirit, she will know and once you’re there – pray.

    I just glanced at your response to to comment above mine as I type. Good to know things are looking up. Peace my brother.
