Trespass

Trespass

A Poem by duff

"

I have been asked to be honest here today

The box you have me in cannot contain me

I am a little curious of your future intentions

You promise me immunity I promise you hell

My dreams are beyond your comprehension

A world apart from the simplicity of your own

You will need to be medicated to handle me

I have many faces that connect generations

Dare challenge me for a murder or two child

My talons will walk your spine as you sleep

Scar after scar you will know who I truly am

No file can fathom my presence in your city

It is in my DNA to haunt you through the fog

This describes how nasty I can get when I feel hemmed in. My independence is claustrophobic. I've never heard anyone find words as perfect as this, to express how it can feel for some of us independent types to be put into a box (((HUGS))) Fondly, Margie

I guess it is just the times and what has been on my mind, but I liken this to the Covid being in the country, in the states, in the towns...
and there is no defense against its talons...it has flown in and is nesting.

This is victorian melodrama to me on first reading and then I realise just how many layers it actually has. then it becomes so much more.
Hope you had a great if strange holiday my friend.

AAAAAGGGHHH duff!! Is this Dracula himself speaking from his moldering "box"? Is it a metaphor for Covid? The goth timbre and reverb of your words are so dramatic and preternatural. Well, I'm a sucker for scary tales, so I enjoyed the fright of it. But please, keep that DNA far away from my own (crossing my fingers right now)!
