Dreams of a Mad Poet

A bit of short poetry (form) These are imagery building exercises. I know you're saying where's the rest of his circle poems this is not a part of the series-don't worry they'll be back soon to bore you .


Shortfall


Misery

Sorrow
loss pain
what once was~ gone~ no more
numbing grief tears perfuse no relief
Despair

(the holy revelations of Storisosa: acolyte and middle priestess to the Blue Dolphin)




Morning After


Daybreak
time to wake,
nightly shadows dissipate-
alarm clocks, dirty socks, whiskey on the rocks-
porcelain distress, what a mess, stomach in duress-
throat’s dry, still high, I can’t get up… don’t let me die-
shut the door--- don’t touch that drink
ever never
whatsoever,
until the
Nightfall

(poetic reflections and Inanities from the shadow puppets of the munidaen worlds)


Afterlife


Surprise
dream turned nightmare
a knife thrown in the dark
a sharp pain, memories, nothing
Wonder

(the fevered writings of Kalifera; acolyte and middle priestess of the Blue Dolphin)


Critique

Praise
dangerous desired
flattering~ intoxicating~ deceiving
an ego desert so sweet nice treat
hurting deserving annoying
indigestion suggestion
a dinner complete~ no treat
Criticism

(the holy revelations of Storisosa; acolyte and middle priestess of the Blue Dolphin)


Completion

Pure
Sacred
Beautiful
Magnificent
Nothing It Is; Empty Is; Nirvana!!

(the holy revelations of Storisosa; acolyte and middle priestess to the Blue Dolphin)

Perversion

It chills
It fills
It feeds
It needs
Monstrous lust -it chills- it fills me
Cold and sickly- it feeds- it needs me

(the lullabies of yukilamia)

Lies

New Year
white lies self delusion
atoning, believing, deceiving
chocolate cake cigarettes ten dollar bets
over eating, heavy breathing, constant wheezing
determination, liberation
Resolution
