I will be fine

Today’s state of mind

is not as poetic or earth-shattering

or as wise as yesterday’s.

Perhaps it is softer, subtler

in tune with the crystals

in public bathrooms. I see

everything and that is a bloody

curse. I know. A twenty-four hour

sleep cures nothing. In fact,

it awakens more dread

and sweeps the dark

under the light. I will be

fine, as you always

appear to be. In this

home, at this stop sign,

under the half-moon,

trembling at all these

diseases that eat up

my daily blessings.

I will throw words

around, too fucking bad.

Read me or not.

Love me or not.

I will not die

but it has changed me

and my hands,

they are the ones

that suffer

the turmoil

of my soul.

You go on

and build your

beautiful home,

discreet love,

Past transgressions

and future bomb attacks.

I have to keep up

with these appointments

cure myself

see you

in my Reiki sessions,

I whither with some kind

of grace.

As long as I have my memory

and the rest

could eat me up inside.

It’s all crystal clear

needs polishing

to claim

the prize.

Bring your magic.

    I stop writing so I can do more reading. You slay me. Now I’m a fan of Monsters and Men too.

        That is fantastic! After the song you selected finished I clicked on a YouTube link that played about ten of their songs. I listened to that as I made my way through WP. Anything Good! Absolutely! besides the 5 books I find myself reading at the same time, your poetry is stellar. There are so many talented people like yourself that I find myself using my very limited free time reading blogs. I stay perpetually behind but those moments I get back are the best! I’m infrequent but always a devoted follower. ๐Ÿ˜€

    I see your website needs some unique articles. Writing manually is time consuming, but there is solution for this.
    Just search for; Masquro’s strategies
