I Specter Eye

A Poem by Robert Trakofler (Bad Bunny)

__I Specter Eye__

 

Muses mulling my mind’s eye

Views the culling of time nigh

Grievous lulling of crimes cries

 

Crave yearn I

Carry courses cast

Parry forces lashed

Yet still I stand

 Aghast

 

Chronos captured divine sigh

Onus fracture my decry

Opus rupture entwined spy


Hearts awry

Wary ghostly grasp

Weary lonely gasp

Yet I can’t hold

Enclasp





 


I specter eye

Featured Review

This was rather interesting and unlike anything I've witnessed before on this site. I loved the weaving of philosophical literature throughout. It heightened the theme of time. Often, time can only gaze onto us with a hearty sigh as we fight the inevitable and long for what's gone. The inward eye can comprehend, often, what's amiss versus the heart. The "Wary ghostly grasp," is the attempt to grapple with what was and the, "Weary lonely gasp," is the lingering epiphany of what is. I enjoyed reflecting on this piece. Great read.

once again a bountiful ballet bombasting bouncing brain, I could be wrong but I sense a lost soul at sea, untethered at the whim of tidal flows, I did enjoy

Nice meeting you as well, excellent words and amazing pieces you have!!!
Very interesting and a bit odd poem. Had to look up the words several times and read it again to get a better understanding. It was nicely done. c:

hi Jung I'm so glad you enjoyed this
THIS is my alley... I have actually written a few of these lines believe it or not... Not saying they are mine! Saying great minds can only help but think alike...

Tooling of ones syllables up and down to a point of succinct is not only the best option available its the only option when choosing a melody...

SEE WHAT I DID THERE...!
Haha, you are voracious, keep slinging em my carnivorous word friend...
They way you winded it down with syllable count, but still such lilt and wordplay...

'Chronos captured divine sigh - Onus fracture my decry - Opus rupture entwined spy.. ' Trio played into a space of thought, perhaps...

Sometimes I need to read your words at least twice in order to recognise or not the notes underlying the beat of them! You seem able to turn twenty-six letters into musical interludes complete with soft pedalling and crashing cymbals! There's a feeling of a gigantic leap held in space too.. just realised it, reading a third time.. I give up, will need to read yet again...

I actually got near to it? Wonders never cease! We need hold breath before we leap too, yes?
You not only perceive the divine sigh that Aion captured, you unravel it as well. And make the muse sway to your cadence, Robert.

One of us is definitely dancing not sure which one maybe it’s both of us:)
When the muse orders us to write, write we must and time has no bearing on her demands. At times, though, it is difficult to grasp the words she offers up. Your staccato lines filled with alliteration are powerful. I like your style, Robert. Lydi**

Amazing use of words Robert.
Hearts awry

I liked each set of lines but the above lines, I could write a epic poem from. Thank you for sharing the amazing poetry.

You are welcome Robert. I will attempt.
Such beats. Such use of language. So percussive. Each line following inevitably almost from the other. I find myself thinking that this poem has always been there but it takes the Bunny to shape it.
