Salty Perserverance

Salty Perserverance

A Poem by Confuser
"

A look at life, what we endure, what is courage, what control do we really have, our importance as humans

"

Salty Perserverance

 

Locked away without a crime

A rusty needle, an IV line

Strapped down on an oppressive gurney

Helpless but my courage redefined

In between worn out lines of

Clods of dirt piled so very high

Somewhere inside my cloudy mind

The dirty curtain dashed away

Exposing curious onlookers

Phantom spirits of my life

No response or emotion in muted eyes

My life disappeared, undisturbed

Doomed to ration death molds

In crevices meticulously created

And hidden away, below the daunting days

Secrets sins haunt the orison souls

 

Reinforcing courage is attrition to mortals

It is blind and distorted, the memories’ fragility

Thwarted like garbage in a green bay,

Rips and ripples remain depending on our state

Of decay…

 

It’s the drawback of the wave,

Lying within that abandoned trough I will remain

Waiting for the tsunami’s courageous display

It is its relevanance upon that ridge of power

That ultimately fills my spirit, I wait

 

Reckless wild fury collects and pulls me away

  Receding… I am only debris

The way you lead the reader through a downward spiral of emotions is mesmerizing. I've always wondered when reading your works...What do the different colored words stand for? That is not a critique in anyway. I'm just merely curious. Thank you for sharing.

Really enjoyed the imagery here. It so captures the feeling of being drugged down, bogged down, or over-inundated with a reality we don't care for/can't stomach. Love this! Thank you!

As my state of decay progresses I am thus assured a calm tide upon which to ride. Thanks for making me think.... and feel.

See, there was a significant event in my not-so-distant past that causes me to read everything in my head with the voice and pace of James Spader. This poem is awesome. This just made it more awesome.
Keep it up!
