Repulsive Slumber  

Down the basement, 
not a single color of envy,
flat-lines, are standing still all around.
The stillness is suffocating,
everything coming my way.
Different from,
the morals,
of my old organize ways.

"Still Round The Corner There May Wait, 
A New Road Or A Secret Gate."  ~~J.R.R. Tolkien~~

In certainty!
Someone will help me dismantle this knowledge!!

A movement so loud that bleeds, 
irritating metal in the open wide.
Time standing still
tossing the dice.

Sleep walking in a slow pace,
paralyzed and lost in a smoky haze.
So blurred, my perception slips.

The concept is so untouchable,
Finding peace, I find the thrills,
I conquered.
Screaming! I wake up,
Tangible evidence, released.
Rough, pillows, invade me.

I follow my guts,
I finally found the right feelings...

Exhaling one final breath, I freeze it!
Avoiding the demons!

Impossible, slumberous visions,
entering the atmosphere ,
thickened, loud voices, ~  "WANT TO BE HEARD!"
Sliding into my slumber,
locked in one solid dream.

My slumber, 
I lay so quietly,
Voiceless, still I feel.
So repulsive, still redeemable.

My slumber,
dry like black soap.
Stillborn, yet still breathing!
Stillborn, yet still moving!

Reaching for the ceiling,
and I try hard not to dream.
An empty pyramid, winding up to a new start. 
Imperceptible pencils in my slumber, beneath me.

Now I am in wonder,
breaking my mind with this, 
from all the solidness. 

Only I can revolve around this light.
Taking hard cold metal,
stabbing it behind me.
My repulsive slumber.....
an ongoing punishment with dark fantasies.


Dedicated to NIKKOS... poem  *Elusive Dreams*

    Hi PD. This one took me for a ride and to an unwanted place! It hurt my poor little brain following it...your description of the nightmare/slumber/fantasies could be orated by Rod Serling in the old Twilight zone show... Whew!

    This is extraordinary , I feel a lot of pain inflicted with the last stanza...your words are strong and piercing. Ouch...a dark fantasy. :) :) :) gwendolen

    Hey, sweet Irma. Thanks for your congrats today. I wish I had time to view the newest winner lists. Hope you got on one? You know me, always entering the contests (except for a few that stump me!) I'm going to get off soon and make enchiladas. I love that kind of stuff. Have a great day! Luv, Andrea

    p.d. Blackness crawls upon the pillow, sidestep it, dodging like a willow, play the game of 'me no never mind,' see it stumbling far behind, laugh in its face our Bilbo, like.... "me no never mind" Don
