"R-U-in..."

A Poem by Chris
"

The title says it all - doesn't it? Read slowly or fast - one word or many.

"

A title may say it all - whether read slow or fast, one word or many ...or even as the last.

 

“R-U-in…”

 

Are you “real” -

or a dream?

…a voice?

…or a theme…

 

Inside

 

Beside

 

- ‘tween my breaths

- behind my eyes

 

another of mere whisper?

 

- a life’s trap of dreams’

  “fondness” of wishes

- a wandering for …ends

 

Todays hints beckoning

…the draw of spun magyk,

a lure of will… a wisp

to be gone yet again?

 

A tomorrows’ tear

More an unforgiven “wish”

On unending stars - falling

and falling and

falling

far

…so… just beyond fingertips

 

…so near…so near…

 

so …paused

in …fear(?) …of…

 

What “closeness” is

dreamt-meant to be

when echoing over-and-over-and

over

through

me’s.

 

“R-U-in…?”

Lol...unfortunately it can definitely start one way and end up the other. hopefully the one way that I read it happens a few times before the second way takes over. This was clever.

chuckling here as well... The "I" 's see as they always will ...and the "WE" 's go with their flows.

"My Review of R-U-in by Chris, A Fellow Writer's Café Author"
by PB Jacobs (www.writerscafe.org)

Well, I strive not to wear Fake Media Astral insignia, which I call Little B***h Rhetoric, if that's what you mean. I really don't buy the Agent thing, media-wise, as an Agent to me is a useless thorn in my side, that is more of a nuisance, to me. Why should I hire an Agent, when I can do that kind of work, myself? That's all I need and want is an Assistant, and that's that.

Besides, I have screwing unruly rodent types and Chowhounding Scumbucket types down pat, or at least down pat, good enough, to book gig's just about anywhere I want. An Agent to me is useless baggage.

It all starts with me being "in" on my inward life, as you put it. I know enough about my inner anatomy to keep the idiot Psychiatrist and Psychologist types away, and out of my hair. They can't shake a stick at what I have documented, and as usual, they learn and feed from me, and if they don't cite me as their source, and drop their Economic Insanity Exemption thing, they are in need of a Psychiatrist and/or Psychologist. themselves.

Nothing beats a close, inner proximity to bare reality, on a personal level! Yeah, I'm in touch with my inner reality and fact of the matter mentality, more than ever. I get what you are saying, all too well. I LIVE my "I'm in!"

Great work, Chris! Oh, and it's messed up, just right!

Thanks, I thought so too... laters.
I was intrigued by the title of this at first,
I read it as ruin...instead of R U in.
Then I read it, found it very clever and interesting.
Very nicely written.

“R-U- in”? Hmmmmm....inside-outside-1-2-3-a game of life and imagination...Olde English “magyk” overlays this contemplative musing.. Exquisite language, form, flow, soliloquy style...”What closeness is dreamt-meant to be” -in Horatio’s philosophy or in the everyman’s. ”behind my eyes...are you real?”- that is the touching and brilliant question here. Each to their own answer. Superb write Chris.

Tulips seem so far away. But there are potted plants in the library window sill. I can touch those.
You danced on many topics and emotions.

I did like the above lines. The ghostly words made me think and believe. Thank you for sharing the amazing words and your thoughts.

I'm really enjoying your writing style. You make excellent use of punctuation, pauses, and spacing. Really loved this one.
