ELEGY FOR SERENDIPITY

ELEGY FOR SERENDIPITY

A Poem by kublakhan27

If you need me

I'll be on the couch soaking in

the sour entertainment

of bent arms in the clock

 

From the corner I am pinned to by sight

the machines have abandoned

embodiment of an appeal

for infinity's human-infused assurance

 

Has the coil of communication

choked on a knot of fiberoptic shadows?

 

Humidity's stationary air

is severed by a wisp that has conquered

survival in a chill

on my forehead of stillborn condensation

 

Seeping like poisoned blood through the past

are the unchained embezzlements

of my identity

in a recall of cutting floor relevance

yearning to be forgotten

but a lame duck emotion

needs a living home

 

You won't need me

“Elegy for serendipity”. Quite the plaintive, melancholic introduction. Your words are heartfelt and personally I do find them relatable. Hopefully there is something that will find us in this downheartedness and alleviate our spirits. Thanks for the share.

I get the impression of a tortured soul held back by the great weight of inertia. A relationship, perhaps? The last stanza is particularly plaintive and resigned. The writing is top-notch what ever the emotion. Very good work!

I must be hallucinating poetry now, because I swear I read and reviewed this already, yet my comment is not there. I love the imagery here. The question in the middle is pretty brilliant.

Life's ups and downs certainly speak volumes to us. Listen to your heart and learn from life's lessons.

Thanks so much Troy :)
Your last stanza really spoke to me, Steve. So tiresome being the living home for that lame duck emotion... But time is its own kind of roller coaster ride; sometimes we find what we need (and who needs us) on the downward slope...

I would feign from being too self analytical in the critical sense when you produce such edifying, cerebral writing as this!

A metaphoric treatise, hope it's not your epitaph lol....ps great accompanying song to compliment your reflective, poetic somnolence!

Indeed, a classic !
I get the feeling this is about your life or relationship maybe yours And the thought that its gone flat ' I read this three times and all i could keep thinking of were the words of my friend david lewis paget
I wonder what we all had in mind as youngsters would look like along side what we have become in reality?

And soon we turn our backs on them
Those shadows that were once young men
Who never dreamt hypocrisy
Would spill their dreams, philosophy;

And rule them with a rod of steel
And teach them well how not to feel,
And lead them blindly through their days -
They spare no thought for younger ways.

And where that dream, ideal, that once
Was held to spell deliverance?
Well we might ask, and well we might;
It’s life, not death, puts out the light!
