Float On

Float On

A Poem by Crowley
"

Eying the world from on high....

"

  


The twilight seemingly everlasting, shimmers with lightning bug flashes

On the bed where my fleshly shell rests, mortally ticking with engaging thought

Lying motionless excepting only the visual cues that uplift my spirit

I see the world in curse and revelation


Slowly I leak ethereal

Rising, lucidly, with purpose, commuting in experience

Riding on currents, freshly bending time and warping intellectual process

Eating quantum bits, and breathing Christ like tendrils


In war, I saw the soldiers grip

An infant broken with innocence leaking blood and light

He saw me and cried for help, fingers sketching injustice

My gaze a Valium, placebo to allow the soul to live, cheating insanity


In love, I drift and eye a pool of sizable lust

The male hooks my gaze, his hands on milky breasts, his guilty smile

Her pool accepting a temporary thrumming, hearts bombastically syncopated

My smile a sail of hope for enduring communion, blissful companionship


In death, the creation of space and energy, a needed vacuum of mortality

She longingly sobs to my feet, not daring the torturous glance of truth

Pulling the maggots from eyes long since milked over

I settle anxieties meant only for tears welling in active bosoms


I float to prize a tumultuous past

I float to preserve hopeful, mesmerizing dreams

I float to eat the ripe paste that nourishes a doubtful tomorrow

I float because….I need you

Thanks so much!!! I appreciate the read and the kind words.
This seems different for you. Usually your message is leaping off the page, whereas your wordplay is more subtle in the background. At first, your message had me by the tail & V2 blew my socks off in that regard, but shortly thereafter I started becoming mesmerized by the sound of the words (many being complex words with interesting sounds) strung together so that I was feeling this on a more visceral level, based on the way it felt to read it, more than on what my brain was reading into it (((HUGS))) Fondly, Margie

Beautiful choice of words, it is truly amazing to read into these raw emotions, there is truth at the heart of these words, a bitter taste to them. Powerful poetry. "a needed vacuum of mortality", "Eating quantum bits, and breathing Christ like tendrils"... Astonishing imagery and frightful imagination!

I must agree with the previous reviewer in that this is not a poem willing to give up its secrets at a glance. I like it and I hope to be back and say more about why after some consideration.
