Uncomfortably numb.

Uncomfortably numb.

A Poem by andrew mitchell

Dark scribbles.

Lost in the wilderness of mind
where memories are stranded,
moored in alcohol fuelled wetlands,
the synaptic bridges broken
with clouded visions that
battle the tides, now obscure;
euphoric numbness resides
wandering desolate grounds
erased, and a bottle
lying empty.

Wow-powerful and nightmarish altered state of consciousness despair. "Lost in the wilderness of mind"..." a bottle lying empty".. a mind succumbing to numbness. Great imagery and metaphor. Kudos!

I love pushing the limits on writing poetry. Not everyone's cup of tea but maybe a few will enjoy the twists and turns, the simple, the depth of simplicity, the bizarre and the ridiculous. Strindberg.. more..
