THE GINGER NIHILIST

THE GINGER NIHILIST

A Poem by kublakhan27
"

02 02 05

"
at the same time
they fall out of grammar
and hang from the source of their shape
like a silk dress to a slim
wire hanger by a shoulder
fault-line wavering significance
arrives at my words
impregnating the barrens of my open jaw
with sentiments hauled in
and barricaded back by timid tongue
and left to hold court with reason
and not to comingle with my heartbeat
and  come out in stutters

Another old chestnut I just found, from an era when I was still committed to lower-case letters.

I do love to read your older pieces, for they are timeless, and still so relevant my friend...

Hmmm a difficult one to interpret, I thought at first, you compare yourself with a jacket, but when I read it was a silk dress, (students? at that time) so it was inneens female in my mind, a jumble of thoughts, but I think most of that you try to express what it was in 2005, when and how you stood in life, with all the side feelings next to it. I could be way off, but it was splendid, in metaphor. Thank you dear!

It reminded me of something you told me about during your high school days. It's related to girls:) Not sure if our convo is still on your PM but my fingers are not used to pressing the delete button so it is still on mine. Well I guess the emotion or the occurence you were implicating on here is not uncommon to teenagers regardless of the gender or preference:) I, for one am still experiencing this in the present time. I think you have perfectly delivered in your own style the process of taking shape or the materialization of your supposed thoughts into words only to find it interrupted by your lack of courage maybe? Or pride? Or insecurities? How about denial? Based on this write, though your voice has improved a great deal, it's still immanent.

Loved this one, my friend. Your poetic voice is screaming in soothing verse here. So many great lines...and I sense an undertone of super sensuality for some reason; maybe it's just me. lol Well done!
