Fighting For The Right To Live, For The Right To Love -

My hourglass shattered somewhere in the Limbo
I found myself swiming towards stones instead of stars,
my heart,fragile & curious began to beat navely,bravely for my soul's sitar,
the flesh of this stage surrounded the nerves of this sapling as roots around rockbed,
I started with limbs erect in love,spine suffused in fluid of affinity's fascination of Godhead,
baby's breath on the cool flame of Future's fortune met with glow from sensation's woe,
sorrow bit my toe,

as my charriot transmutted to a coach wagon,the payload plused,fears pulsed and the price
projected,
it seemed sudden that now hurt could hem the forecast of my dreams,that violence may
precipitate from creation,
in wrongs done unto me I saw the scales of satisfaction heave,debts remitted,and new crimes incurred for salvation,
I battled the spectrum of skeletons & centuries of ceremonious confusion,colliding with rage, cruel apathy detected,
then,in the hysteria of self inflicted hell, love burst through denial like a wail in wilderness as I threw self pity a rainbow -

J.A.B.

    Fused with power, it enwraped me in its arms. Or would if it could take form. Beautiful and godly.

    Jay, your disinterest in such appellation only confirms your status to me - The Most High Priestess and I are very close, She nedds poetesses such as you, believe me - with respect - J.A.B. %

    I wish soup gave us notifications of when someone comments back on our comments. I claim no title as such Priestess, for to do so may only anger the true. However, I thank her, and I thank you for sharing your gifts with me.

    I'm happy that the Love of my work is able to impress upon you something empowering & positively sensational Jay! Considering that you are evidently a high Priestess of divine poetry your encouragement procures much joy in me - thank you so much! J.A.B. %

    I must say a very interesting write Justin; always pleased to hear from you love and the connotations it holds are facinating to all I think, ( the test is how best to use it for positive ends ) I fail quite often I'm afraid yet hope I will always try to rise to its challenge again..)

    JUSTIN, wow... imagine that,,, your hourglass crashing during limbo. I'm gonna say it, "the swimming image towards the stones instead of stars'' blew my mind away... That is a line i wish i thought of..everything about our poem collides, with the real passion, of never giving up... all wages will be resolved one way or another...love the enigmatic image here... always yours truly PD
