Wax Figurine Living On Molten Dreams

Wax Figurine Living On Molten Dreams

A Poem by The Rock And Roll Cowboy(REBEL WITH A CAUSE)
"

I am reading The Heroin Diaries for a second time and it inspired this little write.

"

 

 

Time is a cold reality

When tossed about

On the waves of infinity

Inside a storm of neglect.

Home is nothing more

Then a square white circle

Sectioned off and marked

       As evidence.

One sniff of the soul’s aura

Brings echoing cries

Of hell’s hounds taunting

       The lonely man in the moon.

When childhood is a prison

You’ve escaped from

Adulthood becomes

Solitary confinement.

The only refuge

Are those straitjacket lies

That wraps the mind

In sugar coated peace,

Till the saccharine melts

Inside a ring of fire

From Satan’s glare

Making your eyes a lit wick

And flesh the wax

When you burn the candle

At both ends.

once standing tall and proud,passions ignighted along a trickling stream of hot wax,only to climax into a pool of reflection,of what it used to be and has now become...these lines hit hardest to my ears...
Home is nothing more
Then a square white circle
Sectioned off and marked
As evidence.

I like the intensity of the poem. You end it with and upstroke of energy rather than letting the thought sink away.
I like the line, "Making your eye a lit wick". It is even fun to say out loud. Ha.

Well thank you, I never thought of it that way.

Wow, I really love this above section (the whole piece really). This is powerful stuff, my friend. The imagery is bright and honest and extremely real. I love the ending as well...somewhat of a cliched term "burn the candle at both ends", but in this piece is works like magic. I love your wording and phrasing. Nicely done!

Thank you so much... I was quite inspired by Nikki Sixx's autobiography.
Glad you liked it.

Thanks :)
I like the imagery in this one...turning the sweet and natural to the bitter and costic. 100 daisies my friend.

Great inspiration, apparently! One of the best of yours I've read. I think you only get better over time. :)
Your descriptions of emotion are poignantly visible.

great descriptive write as always. the flow is fluidly done and this paint as scene of horrendous inner conflict. This is a poem of a drug addicts madness. Creatively done.

"When childhood is a prison
You’ve escaped from
Adulthood becomes
Solitary confinement." ... there is much truth in these words.. none of us can wait to grow up when we children, if we only knew...

This is an excellent write. The word choices and the flow are perfect. Also, it speaks to things that most people can relate to. Frankly, if one can't relate to something in this poem, then maybe they aren't doing it right (life).

Thank you for sharing, I thoroughly enjoyed this piece :)

Some outstanding lines and descriptions here. Overall haunting piece

The only refuge
Are those straitjacket lies

Dark and good, very good.
