As the dust settles

Pheromones’ anguish, settle for censored compromises

Windows layered across beckoned cathedrals
Shattered by chipped stones of the hypocrite

Wanton hearts scramble to restore weakest links
To a forged importance

Vacuumed tears towards a leader-less Sun

Yet, these incipient bonds
Will
NOT
BREAK

For it was today
Where cognitive dissonance fell unto a rejected, abstract morrow

As disarrayed perceptions
Copy & paste their way to mirrored confessional booths
Begging for error’s atonement
In order to repeat pencil-drawn, vicious circles
Tomorrow

…

Oh, what good is a curdled beggar reaching out for God’s clarity?

When they already took back the “change” left in His basket?

    One of the many reasons you are a lovable bear is that you're self effacing based on comments below. This poem is a masterpiece and I am not a depositor of superlatives by habit. I must fav this because it rocks from so many different directions that it would take me much further than this space to do it justice.

    Eszes Avatar Drake Eszes Date: 12/23/2013 11:10:00 PM Block poet from commenting on your poetry

    This is a hell of a comment. Flat out. I am truly flattered by your thoughts on this. This really took me by surprise. Thank you very much for your thoughts on this, Craig.

    Good morning Drake. I hope you are enjoying a cup of eggnog maybe a bit of Rum and surrounded by those you love. Merry Christmas Drake.
