Tell Him Dear, For Your Sake

Tell Him Dear, For Your Sake

A Poem by Ethan
"

My mother is a fish.

"

Today, not unlike any other mind you, 

I seek through creaking grounds some 

Respite from my headache.

And ache it does, 

Like a great gong signaling a Chinese feast, 

Reverberating with sounds of pounding feet. 

They fall and shatter, these glass globes of crystallized thought. 

The cogs are frozen over once again, and 

When the wheels attempt to churn, they crack 

Like spinning plates of china. 


Sister or mister, 

God kiss whichever soul heals my head. 

Prescribe me something, Doctor. 

Anything, Dear Doctor.  

Help me to sleep, as you sleep. 

Help me to die, as you die. 

O Lord, what a thing am I that I may call myself I, 

As if I could be anything other than an I in the great eye 

Of my stormy amalgamation of mind-shards?


What's that? 

Who's there?

Is Papa knocking on my skull again?

Oh Papa, you know you can't come out now.

Leave me be, go to sleep.


It is not the season for reason, fellow men. In fact, it is the crux of the issue at hand. Smash it to pieces, that boring ball of reason. Every man must each shatter it inside himself so that he may be called a true man of the Everyman. A fork in the eye, a chip of the tooth; we possess no such primordial flaws. Follow me into the void, leave yourself behind. Drift simply. Simply be.


O Storm, hold me.

Wind, blow me.

Mountain, mold me.

Farmer, grow me.

Lover, loathe me.

Teacher, show me.

Father, know me,

For my head is most holy.

Oh my gosh. This is beautiful. You should make a Bible. The way you wrote, and the words you used.. They sounded like artifacts or something haha. You have great potential. I thought I was good, but being on this site makes me feel terrible at what I do haha. Great gob.

Thank you very much
I really love the imagery you are able to conjure up in your writing. I get the sense here that there is a lot going on in this mind and that makes the headache even more tantalizing. Very well written :)

Like a headache itself, not simple to explain. I can definitely relate to the notion of not being able to escape ones self.
I like your style, the loose format but with pockets of rhyme. Nice work
