A Poem by jacob erin-cilberto

ember junction

 

 

 

arranging feelings in order

of disorder

chaotic impulses

denying not an option

with grief

as it accumulates

ashes upon ashes

 

like a cigarette lying in an ashtray

I am a burnout

smoked emotions

the flavor of life

filtered out

 

along with a taste for it

myself.

This has a taste of darkness that works for me. Most of my recent philosophy seems to convince me that I waited too late in life the get a philosophy. Nicely done. ~Jim

Your poetry is full of philosophy now, Jim.
And it is deep...a ponder.

Yep ... grief is necessary but it should be an act in itself and never power other acts. So nice to read you again.
