Poetic Fragments

 

(A)

When

 

one person’s act of overt aggression

 

…….is a storm of silence.

(B)

When

 

the only flight from fear

 

…….is to stand and wait.

 

(C) 

delirium’s trip

oh, it all comes so quickly

this dance….in your maze

Frayed

Posted in Abstract Poetry with tags , on September 22, 2014 by lengesinski

Frayed

 

Teardrops fall

from

closed eyes

steeled heart

holding

still graying secrets

long forgotten

place, time, persons

hastened steps

down blasphemed rows

as

thunderstruck cherubs

gently dropping

tulips

o’er the graves

slain enemies…..once brothers

we each have our time

tell our tale

liberation only

sometimes centuries

after the fact

euphoric smiles join with addled minds

as broken hearts escort age old furies

to the bridge

of separation

our angelic echoes

cascading

into the depths

of

a

dark

looming

eternity

wandering

the many rooms

and broken corridors

in this gray

maze

Dented Saint

Posted in Abstract Poetry, Prose Fragments with tags , , , , , on September 8, 2013 by lengesinski

Dented Saint

 

In chasing shadows

a crushing of anxiety

a building of uncertainty

the only certainty-

-are the pains that will have to be endured

 

their hurt will be without end

their suffering without end

their peace will be crushed down to fragments

their resolve will be broken

no worry

 

…..parts of you will be taken as well  

 

gradual building of giants

small things with exaggerated shadows

elongated phantom forms

magnified sounds and imagined torments

 

the enormity

of our burdens

overwhelms

 

your pain

 

but

 

my empathy

 

I see no other choice

 

but to carry……

 

 

truth be, I would know no other way

Yesterdays and Todays(Aftermaths)

 

hangman’s noose

swirls and rocks

in an ever caustic breeze….

public opinion

ever wraught

flawed

one sided

albeit millions in number

aberrant animus

a dance of blinding hate

not needing of clear and rational minds

eyesight decidedly obscured

determinations

long since concluded

 

Justice

Fairness

Impartiality

all seemingly obsolete extinct passé

 

perhaps only sleeping

Candlelit Reflections(faces and names past)

Candlelit

Candlelit Reflections

(faces and names past)

 

 

Merest flickerings

now only a complete absence

of a flame

that once set out

 burning brightest

at it’s apex…..

summit of youth

only where and when

high blue skies….

of promise

are believed to be without end

unrestraind vigor  

unbridled brashness

signaling out….

with resounding vibrancy

Almost Challenging

Lounging gods of past

to the world ahead

daring once

and reaching out

well beyond a calling to

darkest skies

of a starless night

that with certainty

will one day

come calling…..

until that time

when the flame’s intensity lessens…

until the day

where finally

light is extinguished

an inevitably succumbing

into a long quiet…..

a velvetted darkness

forever

Shema

 Frozen Ambivalance

Almost Intoxicated by Waves

of Indifference

A Complete Inability

to Ascertain

Truth from Lies,

Where Exaggerations Would

Reign Dominant

Slippery Slopes

Where Neither Footing

nor Gripping Possible

Trading Freely,

Equilibrium for Constant the State of Flux

At the Last Minute

Unforseen Opportunity

To finally Escape

the Clutches of

Blind Servitude

And Shadows of More Gods than Can be Named

That Seemed

to Always

Shadow from Childhood

Finally,

So Foreign

Complete Openness

Tasting for Once

The Sweet Freedom

Of

Independence
