Vivid Flavors of Distress

Vivid Flavors of Distress

A Poem by Anusha Prabhu

The dark sky, black as kismet

No stars or signs of the moon

And there, a firefly, flies away

To the distance… far behind

Far behind the unseen moon


I loathe what I'm doing, poetry

I loathe the words

As they flow out of my heart,

I pity them

I pity myself

For falling in love… with words

For I am obsessed, and now I fear

That the obsession may drown me within


And as I'm lost in a forest

Of thoughts,

I meander among the trees, my past

In search of the moments,

Those were left in the sands of time,

And all I find,

Are the trees that have been left behind

To putrefy, and shed away their leaves

For time to feed them with tears… n smiles


And these thoughts, I fear them,

Their mere subsistence,

The mere rhythm of the vivid flavors of distress


And when I hope to hate poetry

I get poetic about my abhorrence for poetry

nicely done.
smetmes, there's a time when we all gotta escape d ridges of such poetic life, esp. when we're found quite far fron reality, perhaps, as we make a move 2 get ovr things around, we seem more wrapped up in 'em so yeah... it's kinda very vivid flowers of distress that ain't taste well. well written!
