HAMMER on METAL

HAMMER on METAL

A Poem by TerryDarcy-Ryan akaSheerTerror
"

" thunder is envious of lightnings perfect hit hammer on metal as the gods crack their whip "

"


                     


the sun plays with darkness

stabbing and jabbing in departure

black unwinds, stretching, encompassing, a creeping abyss

stillness has one hand on the wheel

the glassy dark

makes a water's reflection clear

striking shallow sweet a place of phantoms


man kneels in grace

he is hammer for the god's of war

creating his place with a hum and rattle

time is man's finest driven rival

a flash in the sky

we fall and fly

lost inside our own battle cry


hammer on metal produces this metallic sound

agony’s pleasure just beyond

again and over the echo resounds

calls us home while blinding us profound

a cue recurs flowing slow

passes over our ears

a clear place to set a crown


quicker than quick we are controlled

a finger on the trigger

Chosen for one but all ages can be a player

the rules have come undone

to beat a new order

the next train jumps the tracks

a chain snaps back releasing a bullet named terror


this bedlam competes with the sound of conflict

in a place found just past bliss's hitch

tattooed with metals ink

engraved skin feels pains true kiss


thunder is envious of lightnings perfect hit

hammer on metal

as the gods crack their whip

Photos and words. Outstanding.
"man kneels in grace

You took the reader with you to realistic places and I liked the above lines. The poem hard, direct and true. What poetry support to be. Thank you my friend for sharing the amazing poetry.

You are welcome my friend.
Fantastic piece of writing.
In all the darkness of this, I spotted a singular line of beauty.
"in a place found just past bliss's hitch"
Even though that's a dark line, it's really gorgeous.

Relic, thank you for a stellar review

The last verse cracks it home, but the whole thing...

*this bedlam competes with the sound of conflict
in a place found just past bliss's hitch
tattooed with metals ink my engraved skin feels pains true kiss*

... And many others... You fabricate such distinct patterns, and an almost thick feeling of realism...

I do not have the depth of self to confront the issues you do in your writing... The ledge is too deep for me... Strongly penned...

The title drew me in and your words kept me chained to it... you explained the chairs of humanity so elegantly yet with a greasy edge. Really dig this one.
