As Days Go By

Inspired by Opeth – The Drapery Falls and this entire year…

I sip on Super Mario Brothers hot cocoa cup
Filled with convictions’ drop
From streams of consciousness

Ready to skinny dip into a new plateau 

No
Holds
Barred

Ferocity’s grip
Looking upon God’s yesterdays
As He hands me a pen
Asking me what I have learned

…

As days have passed

I slow dance with convex mirrors within glasshouse.

Remedies to my confusion
Thrusting me back to the day

A befriending of cotton candy souls
As we ride against Ferris Wheels with a song
That should never end

Holding hands through rickety roller coasters
Pulling me downwards
Upwards
Parallel to perpendicular resolutions

The square root to pale ghosts
Staring with onyx want

All of their tainted wishes
Were for brighter days

…

As these days pass

I recollect collective smile upon my spiraled breaths.

There should have been more.
There could have been more.

It’s not too late for early newcomers into my atrium.

But, you better have your ticket in hand.

For I have already tasted the scalding broth of disappointing screams
Overpowered in salted dramatics

Please
Just come as you are

Unfiltered

No plastic surgeries are welcome within these heartbeats.

…

As days go by

I continue to dream of tomorrow’s smile
Placing loudspeakers against silenced seclusions

With ONE MIC
I hail to cathedral sanity

Swimming within my stream of consciousness that few can dive into
Without turning their backs

…

As tomorrow approaches

Who will be the spark in our cherry bombs?

To light jeweled, nocturnal ionospheres within breaths of security
And sincerity coated fingertips

Who I ask?

Speak loud!!!
Speak in unbridled frequencies!!!

Don’t wait for another day to go by…
...without me waking up to your sound again.

    Absolutely brilliant! I love the lines.."Looking upon God's yesterdays as he hands me a pen" and "Speak in unbridled frequencies" As poets we must tell what we have learned and tell it loud! Happy New Year a little late. I was secluded with my grandchildren for the holidays and loving every busy minute.

    Ahhh.....Drake, my favorite DJ......you are kickin-ass with this rollercoaster ride! What a way to end an era...and start a new year off with this amazing poem. I'm so sorry I've been on "cottoncandy overload"...with family, and holiday stuff, that I was late reading this, and just now caught up on your last radio show..(that rocked, by the way)..Monterey was a great co-host...and this will be a new year for gathering up a larger audience.!! The lines in this poem..I want them all as my own!!

    HAHA! What a classic comment! You never cease to charm me, Carrie. Yes, the show w/Monterey was utterly beautiful! You enjoyed your time w/your family, I will always value that too...as I have been doing the same.

    Is this one from you book? I feel like I have read it before. Perhaps I have just had a major dejavu moment. Either way this is spectacular and fits New Years like a six fingered glove dipped in chocalate sauce. happy New Years my friend!

Its such great fun reading this lovely piece of your signature poetry!

    What a very fitting year ended poem, Drake... If I could kidnap some lines here, I would. So i won't mention the ones that I really liked. Kidding! But the thoughts you put in here, so true, i won't be able to babble here on the specific parts, since typing on my phone is kind of a pain, but just a wonderful poem throughout, really enjoyed it and can see i hope some reference to your radio show? My computer's still busted, so listening in is no dice for me, sad to say. You have a brilliant year ahead, Drake and thanks for passing by with your enthusiasm, yup it's been a while...
