THROUGH WITH KEEPING SCORE

THROUGH WITH KEEPING SCORE

A Poem by kublakhan27

"
Soft shelter
I urge your preternatural
brigades of perspective
to ground my resignation
in some hypothetical
formation of inclined leisure
If I'm treading mere chance
in my hope then I urge you
not to simply humour me with
sly tomorrows assuring
optimism in the brittle molts
of days shrinking to reveal
solar aspirations
I'll turn my back
to the broken weather like
a naked sibling
There is nothing humourous
in humouring
though I've taken it
in self-destructive perpetuity
Tie me to the rack of realism
like Odysseus before the Sirens
I'll sigh and swallow
yet another new medication
one for soft shelter
in compounded sleep
where perspectives hide
and the chemicals of moods
long dismantled
congregate behind blindfolds of
destiny's clumsy executioners

So glad you enjoyed it mojo, many thanks for the kind words.
Don't you love placation and there there along with buck up and it will get better. Yeah, sure, humour me, but it won't do any good. Your anger shines through this work, and makes it a home run literary-wise.

Thank you as always for the support John.
Brilliant, brilliant, I can tell you my interpretation but I don't want to get on my own nerves today...or yours lol but when I see the title in the poem I want to say it will wear you out keeping account of injury in any form even self-inflicted. If you let go you can breath and tackle the next issue with a clearer head.

Take me seriously. Find me beneath the medication. I am more than my troubles. Stop placating me I am not stupid I am right over here, you just have to figure out a new angle to see me:

There is nothing humourous
in humouring
though I've taken it
in self-destructive perpetuity

This is fabulous Steve!
