Best Ellis Cobb Poems

+ Fav Poet


standing in the line i feel the pressure, scolding, start to build,

i feel their each and every iris as they climb the height of my structure,

this fortress i was forced, by fear in youth, to unearth and bare in hand,

with time has weathered thin and i with it feel increasingly translucent.

mutter and glance, hands attempt to contain their maintenance.

to look and to listen, not a single tone to note or color to perceive.

their contaminants infiltrate my ventilation, the stench is sickening,  

pulse erratic and mind askew, i flee, steps fueled by incubated haste,

cause comes to such effect even the beaten path is bruised by its confusion.

the archway constitutes a sigh and with that a slow of pace,

fumbling finger over fidget, pocket full with whispers coaching panic on its way.

the breathe of smoking paranoia shrugs a calming gesture.

a wink of timid silliness and nurtured nature bring to mind,

how, even aware of relevance, dissimulation fogs the clouds.
