No Parachutes,safety nets,souls,or hope

Love is whispered and not forgotten
If this be so
I deaf to soft lipped invitations seek no thought of hope
I of no past collection hold thought
To forget is gruesome and beautiful

My eyes, swift allies in my war of world tell no lies

Silent in the 4 walled chalkboard blue
Shakespearean mad men twist their tongues with words of bland hue

I believe the concept of Ugliness is more profound than that of beauty
Dreams of my bladed face fill up behind my eyes...scratching my mind

Nothing goes SURPRISE! anymore
To love and lose is not the exciting protagonist to never having lost love

the optimists run in circles
pretenders of despair hunt themselves

Every street is Desolation row and my window is covered with blood

Nothing comforts anything
No advice

....just surprises

    Keep this. I love that first couplet. I wish that I had written that. Thank you for your remembrance of me and my poem. I appreciate it. I apologize for the delay, but I was moving all last month into this from New Jersey to North Carolina. Forgive me. Regards, Gerard.

    Truly, "pretenders of despair hunt themselves," Kalonji. This is a very powerful, thought-provoking write. But I do hope you find something that brings you comfort. Love, Carolyn
