Insipidity

Insipidity

A Poem by Tai Ryens

The white noise
of the world
bristles
in my thoughts.

Silence screams.

Static screams
back.

Winter feels too warm,
yet my bones shiver
in the breath of snow.

So, too, does my heart,
with every breath,
alone.

Silence screams,
my lips sing along.

Static screams
just the same song.

What used to be
the unbearable sound
of gloom screeching
in my ears
is now nothing
but a mimsy
walk in the park.

I always believe that my thoughts are loud as the silence stood, numbing. That's the time I think the mind is such a complex river with tons of passages or tons of doors to pass through. The ending is quite just right for me... and I like it, like somehow I can relate to its voice. great work my friend.

oh, thank you for clearing this :)
love "mimsy" .. thank you for that! ;) how awful to be in that state of mind .. your poem for me borders between emotional and mental illness .. you have created strong tension says i ... the white noise is overwhelming especially today, with our constant electronic devices ... all we have to do is unplug :)

I like the way you think.
finally all the screeching sounds of life, of the world, all the craziness is something we get used to...
and we find ourselves just walking in the park, not hearing anything...everything starts having a dull finish to it.
insipid...
but the poem is not...the rocks.

There's some classic Tai in this. Change the word "thoughts" in the first stanza to "bones" and I'd know you were the culprit who wrote it if it were in braille and I have no clue how to read braille. That's how classic Tai it would be.

That last stanza is amazingly foreboding...
