Tocsin

Tocsin

A Poem by Ana B.

Midnight conversations

At the edge of the sky…

Enmeshing fascinations

For my troubled, addled mind.

 

Amused is the ubiquity

How I accidentally survived this life

                        So far.

Cause only a true zealot of obliquity

Can relish in his crime

                                  Or justify a war…

 

And how I chase the stable instability

To make up for the missing link,

Eroding the body of the moribund sensibility

With every word and breath and blink.

 

And all along there was no missing link.

The Dark Knight with his soft lips

Awaits and whispers -‘’I’m closer than you think,

But still you get to choose your personal apocalypse’’.

Thank you :)
maybe we are not visionary enough to choose our own adventure when it comes to the apocalypse.
we are plenty alarmist however, especially poets.
This was a brilliant universal warning and also had a sense of vulnerable individual reflection. Nice!

Thank you for stopping by MP :)
I really liked the way this flowed, it seems to have a soothing rhythm to it and I loved these lines here:

And how I chase the stable instability
To make up for the missing link

We're all just searching for that "missing link" nicely done!

Awe Ana, you killed me with this final line, "But still you get to choose your personal apocalypse’’.
The entire poem is so harmonious and a lovely rhythm and up and down tempo is well used within your word choice in which I loved so much.
Your fan David.
