Mayhem

Mayhem

A Poem by Latifa
"

confusion can be really hard and misguading

"

heavy havoc hungers the poor spirit for insight

hazy horror holds the crier from the light

 

twirling  tempest tears the balance of one's self

turning tables twist the doors of desire

 

flustered feelings feed the peevish beasts

failing faith forbid the crier to belief

Do we choose the words or do the words choose us? Vessels of thought, emotion and subject to the whims of those "peevish beasts." It is the nature of failure that defines the word itself as it cannot and does not fully achieve anything close to an embodiment, so personal, so unbalanced - and as you say it twirls and turns and wreaks havoc upon the spirit that it seeks to encompass. These dark shadows, these inky ethereal forms ... they seek out, they envy, they lust - it is their nature, their need, their hunger - insatiable it would seem. But, a sense of self and faith in something, anything really, will cause them to retreat.

100 faithful feelings

I felt like this poem is all over the place, like it wont stay on one subject. Maybe i'm wrong. However, I love you're vocabulary.
