Truths and Tricks

Truths and Tricks

A Chapter by Dr. YumnaKay
"

Written in fragments. A mixture of everything which has been on my mind lately...

"
Stroking strings and 
feathered wings. 

I read you, 
and the way you 
form your words, 
your silence, which 
lingers in the air. 

What truths do you hide, 
and the tricks up your sleeve 
which peek stealthily past, 
as you work your mind 
into drunken frenzies.

Death evades me.

Doc, I like this. I often do this, put some of my jottings together to see what they become. It seems kind of a simple reverie and yet there is an underlying uncertainty with the antagonist of your story, a questioning if you will.

P.S.
I'm pleased that Death evades you. Hopefully for years to come.

Beware those silent speakers I say and the games they play. You may be able to read them, but they play better. Drunken frenzies complicate the issue even more. That's where you took me Dr Y. All good wishes.

I try sometimes to do this thought stream writing , sometimes it does connect and other times it reads like hidden metaphors..

It's an advantage either way then ;) thank you so much for your words here. Appreciated. :)
Poetic threads of random thoughts; unanswered questions and a sense of losing control (drunken frenzies) - interesting read and provoking write - .... nice... :-)

I like how you take this piece, Phill. Thank you so much for your lovely words :))
Here it feels like you've captured some of those idle moments when the oddest things flutter thru one's consciousness . . . well shown with imagery & questioning . . . kinda like thoughts bouncing against those flippers in a pinball machine. I try to wait until my thoughts line up, to write something. It's intriguing to think about showing those random mind pitter-patters instead *smile* Fondly, Margie

I do try to wait too, but most of what I write come in fragments anyway for me to arrange them into .. read more
in "drunken frenzies" we are usually most honest and forthcoming.
the speaker here hides the truth no matter what...
hard to feel and understand someone who does this...
silence can be so loud...
