Feeling Everything at Once

Feeling Everything at Once

A Poem by Kaliope

Thinking outside forces are captors, forever feeling fractured 
perception and deception are fueling dread
confession of mental infections
want to reflect progression
lost in own head, drowning in fantasies
a sweet confection of dreams and fallacies
imperfection is obsession, or is that perfectionism?

Self-doubting certainty while in debt to self
buried in depths of myself
extracting lessons of retrospection
I'm disconnected and wasting too much time
crying at bedtime, acting victimless in crimes
burning at the stake for every mistake
choosing to be a martyr over a fire starter.

Kept from ascension, trapped in aggression
in tunnel-vision dimension
pathetic and yearning for aesthetic
resistant to synthetic, manufactured feelings
they make me helpless and persistant for assistance
want rapture without being reckless
emotionally senseless
deflections and missed connections
sip new direction.

There are so many emotions of one emotion dwelling across this poem...
I can almost imagine the tune that can go with the poem!
This poem is how I feel at times, and you've managed to make it really emotional and heart wrenching as well...
Keep it up

Kaliope,
"Feeling Everything at once"
This was a stream of thought quandary. Thinking through everything all at once as the title goes.
"I'm disconnected and wasting to much time, crying at bedtime." This line was the one clue of the person in the story and the reality of her responses to all the phrases flowing through her.
It almost seems in the process of this poem that the narrator is grappling with the what ifs, or what could of beens. Your ability to form so many thought sequences shows great creativity. A really Interesting and clever poem Calliope.
Bless you much,
Kathy

'.. resistant to synthetic, manufactured feelings
they make me helpless and persistant for assistance ~ want rapture without being reckless'

There are writers that stick to ordinary or restrained structure, believing it's the only way. Not at all. If language stays in the past it becomes stagnant. Man has gone from scratching figures on cave walls to making the world light up... and your writing is just like that. It makes the mind move into motion, makes the heart sing its melodic phrasing.! Love it.. never stop, go on and up like an eagle!

Great theme, language, beat, flow and rhyme. Well-penned expression of finding oneself on a carousel of feelings with all emotions colliding. "Kept from ascension, trapped in aggression, in tunnel-vision dimension"- just amazing! Brava!

You're welcome & it's so frickin cute :) haha
I think we too often lose that sense of feeling anything while trying to feel everything at once...
This had a very nice flow. Some really good eye catching lines. Well penned, K.
