Mouth full of grit

Mouth full of grit

A Poem by terry smith

your chrysalis   
falls   
time it calls   
& shatters   
at my feet   
releasing you   
into   
the blue   
to be set free   
of me   
i take the shards   
shuffle the cards   
inject them   
into   
my blood so deep   
you trip my mind   
I feel it climb   
into your masterpiece   
I fade within   
succumbed by sin   
it is   
my   
only   
peace   
& after all   
the church bells   
 call   
I rest here   
on my knees   
wishing you   
would come back to   
the hell   
you shared with me   
after a while   
i give a smile   
to my   
incomplete   
when nighttime   
comes   
I lay with guns   
& wander   
empty streets   
& after all   
i find you   
there   
a thousand kisses deep

A lot said in the poetry. I liked the honest tone and directness of the thoughts. Strong flow of thoughts led to very good ending. I wanted to know and read more. Thank you Terry for sharing the amazing poetry.

Hi Terry Smith:This is so cool and reminiscent of some of the stuff written during the sixties.
