there is a mediterranean maelstrom
inside of me, and frankly these demented bones,
are inventing a thousand ways to drown
my soul inward,

the curves of my cartilage are overripe vineyards
for myriads of apprehensions blossoming
age, insipid sand charting the honeysuckling
progression of snapping parabolas

the tempests swat opposing ranks
& I am afraid that I have begun to lose myself
between the roaring of my ears,
                       torrent in a can,
                a soulless man -                
         and what is a man without a soul
[ I'm lighter than that] 

these mythical caverns of what once was my days
are condensing into dripping pages,
I want the books to etch my ruins into libraries
my workshop of obituaries will carry this hollow
crone among the waves - these days, I do not forget
my circles
   
7/31/13 I seriously cannot title in this funk.
His last words were allegedly, "do not disturb my circles."

edit: oh my goodness, I never expected a DD! Thank you so much to *SMAdams for suggesting and ^NicSwaner for featuring! :heart:

I love the rhythm of this one— which I'm sure was a little tricky to hammer out, with all those (very nice) long words. Keep it up!

Wonderful piece. :clap: Congrats of the DD!

I did spot a small typo however.

"the tempests swat opposing ranks
& I am afraid the I have begun to lose myself"

Just thought I'd bring it to your attention.

Great work! I really enjoyed reading.

I enjoyed this piece, for it has a level of beautiful complexity without being over the top. It tells you how it is, but in a more dramatic way. Quite a pleasure to read.
