Morning Person

Morning Person

A Poem by Alias

The poisons in my veins are yet
to leave me
they nestle sweetly buzzing
await their farewell bite
bodies surround me
sticky with sickly morning sweat
sleep, hard-fought, has taken them
stale breath forms clouds 
above us all
limbs ache and heavy heads
loll carelessly on makeshift beds
the wounds that at conception
were nothing to us
insist on being felt
murmers and grunts
join the morning chorus
only I am there to hear
the disjointed harmony
of the flightness birds I find
snoozing at my feet.

Sounds like a terrific orgy, lol. Damn, I hate being awake in the morning. Very descriptive and the visuals are quite depressing in their representation.

Overall, pretty good job! ;)

Some mornings bring back the memories of dull affairs of the yesterday and a day-ahead. The body will not accept the life is what it means. A good imaginary there.

Love that descriptive, with its own kind of bite. Great poem...full of imagery that grabs the reader and pulls them into the emotion. Nicely done.

I had the impression that this was a drug house with a bunch of people partying for days and all coming down together. I'm probably completely wrong but it was just my take on it. Nonetheless it's an interesting write.

what a coincidence...i am just now reading this poem and listening to the soundtrack of Romeo and Juliet...and this reminds me of when he was exiled and she would have to wake without him near...and i also remember a love who departed for another country and how suddenly lonely the mornings became..

beautiful poem, Alias.
