A Poem by Ana B.

In my soul lives a body,

That’s stubbornly hunched.

A willing slave of demagogy

That can’t stand after being punched

By life.

Bitterness is a bitter mask -

My agglutinate knife;

I wish I had more questions to ask

After being punched

By life.


                                                     

Shadows are dripping

Making ink for my dreams…

In those moments, while fears are sleeping

I paint my world from dazzling figurines.

Where the world is simple

With no walking hollow souls,

Where the gypsy moon shows her dimple…

No metaphorical black holes…


Just music.

The way in which this poem is presented is beautifully artistic. The music, gif, and image all create this atmosphere the blends very well with the text. The imagery (from the words, not the actual images) is striking. Very well done.

Thanks my dear :)
You have spun some amazingly artful ideas here! The idea of being hunched over after being punched -- such an amazing metaphor & you've spelled it out in a way that helps us feel it as well as understand it. The idea of being punched by life is a feeling that's so relatable, yet the way it unfolds in your message is quite original. Even tho I love all your imagery & metaphorical expressions, I'm not ending up with a strong understanding of your overall message here. But that's not a requirement & I like the contrast between the first & second stanzas full of imagery (((HUGS))) Fondly, Margie

Thank you :)
The music, (as always)... Gorgeous and haunting, I stay hunched over to my very soul from the weight of the shadow ink... Seriously, that line, and, in fact, that second verse really shined through... If black tar could shine, heh... A master choice for the atmosphere, and a perfect black-hole of metaphors... Gravitationally penned...

:) I'm happy my words have such an effect, thank you again.
Picture, music.. more than appropriate and, quite extraordinary.

Your words are a contradiction of how to be, how to feel and whatever felt was a kind of travesty.
Perhaps. Life is a killer, kills hopes, dreams, lies, steals, near drowns what was/could be a magic place where pain's merely a word. Perhaps. Read this twice, still not sure.. but .. maybe the raw emotions will always be yours, and, yours agone.

Fine, fine writing.

It's more of a hopeful hopelessness. Thank you for the sweet words dear Emma.

Artwork and words. Perfect and beautiful. I liked the use of the powerful description and the feel of mystery in your words. Hollow soul. Can the soul know peace? Thank you Ana for sharing the amazing poetry.

You are welcome dear Ana.
Expectations unmet... changes somehow missed... feeling left behind as others moved on and yet you're there again and for you it's changed but still the same... the world dreams on while we danse to our music.
