Spinning 'Round Here Insane

Spinning 'Round Here Insane

A Poem by Neva Flores Smith - Changefulstorm
"

Everything I do seems to make time kiss the places where I spin, stroking........ as it devours.

"





No matter which notes are played on still waters

they weigh heavy on my pain

when they fall.

There are days when I realize

I am spinning 'round

and murmuring,

feeling forced and raw.


It seems that time dwindles down

into its own sea

then wakes the night

asking to be filled with hours.

Everything I do

seems to make time kiss the places

where I spin,

stroking........

as it devours.


I can feel a searing look

from eyes on the sidelines

when I attempt to hold the jewels of darkness

next to me.

Their footsteps

are like the million curses of tears,

stinging..........endlessly.


Before the door closes on my life's journey

I know the moon will rise

in all its angelic innocence

once again.

Until then, I will dream

of polishing those jewels,

spinning round

here......

insane.

You style is of elegance and aloofness of spirit. You make the words alive and the images to dance in our minds. Something that is unique in all your writes...

The above lines were my favorite. Life seem like a spinning wheel sometimes. Always moving and never know where we will land. Thank you for the outstanding poetry.

"everything i do seems to kiss the places/ where i spin/ stroking/ as it devours"

that line kissed me square on the lips and ate me up...great stuff.

sometimes we spin everywhere but don't land where we want to...

everyone keeps us turning looking for answers...our head gets so filled up it drives us insane.

others judge us...they don't understand...their eyes always upon us...as we seize the darkness and try to make sense out of it.
