KHAN'S BLUES

KHAN'S BLUES

A Poem by kublakhan27

01 27 14

"
Not a single messenger
of solid clarity is safe
beneath my senses

The most trivial of visual
acknowledgements
shrivel windows into
nominal extinction
before me

Poor Winter windows
sentinels of colour gone stark
I'm afraid I must
declare you all mirrors now
tethered in the wayward
blisters of an inconsistent rain

Poor Winter poles
all your schoolyard tricks
of adhesion will be numbed
by the leather of my chapped lips
while my eyes blur your icy
emblems into epitaphs

"I'm afraid I must
declare you all mirrors now
tethered in the wayward
blisters of an inconsistent rain"
These lines make me think of someone I used to know and hate. Someone who I thought I loved. that is just a reflection of what I abhor . Nice write Kubby

i really like this Steve...

i see it more as winter meaning that life itself has gone cold and numb...and i have too...i don't feel much anymore, i am just an image of feelings...a reflection from a mirror of what used to be...

the colors have gone stark...yes the hue is fading, and i just don't care much anymore.

really strong poem.

When it rains, it pours...and with the winter blues, it can be blistering!

"Poor Winter windows
sentinels of colour gone stark
I'm afraid I must
declare you all mirrors now
tethered in the wayward
blisters of an inconsistent rain"~ You never cease to amaze me, Stevie!!

I felt the freezing rain...

Dark emotions expressed to perfection!! Excellent!! :)
