A Regulated Sonata

Deeply inspired by a piano cover for a song called “With a thousand 
words to say but one”…the heart never, ever forgets. Wrote this in 6 minutes, 
the length of the song itself...

6 minutes, granted

Permission from my agnostic lord,
To shed you from these reinforced tonsils

To undo God’s whisper of 2008,
I would

To undo all my darkened hours,
I would

I taste the bastion of clouded whispers
Relinquishing greener pastures

4 minutes remaining


I still miss you.

The yesterday
Of you

But, today,
I grab exponential smile
With serenity plated exhales,
That you’re gone

I picture how irregular my heartbeat
Would become
If you whispered carnivorous greetings upon
These unfiltered eyelids

60 seconds


As the landlord of my domain,
I evict you
Still leaving a window cracked

Similar to my 3rd eye

Forever dreaming 
For the yesterday of you

©Drake J. Eszes

    Your use with words are always so unique and so dang effective. This is quite a heartfelt piece. "I picture how irregular my heartbeat Would become If you whispered carnivorous greetings upon These unfiltered eyelids" Those lines are incredible. I love this verse! Excellent piece! I also venerate the line "Still leaving a window cracked".. that can either mean hope or the exact opposite! Very strong emotions expressed on this gem of a write. Keep it up Drake! Always, Laura

    I love this poem..It is packed with emotions.I love the determination to move on,yet the missing moon seems to keep reflecting its shadow,yet you keep counting the stars with a will to keep going.Almost a dilhema between the heart and the mind..Powerful indeed.Too many beautiful lines to

    Just remarkable, intense and hard hitting. Its hard to wish for a past that wasn't your best moments but compared with the present moment they don't seem all that bad.... awesome pen Drake!

    Set to a ticking clock, this comes forth even more intense and meaningful,and it stirs thoughts similar to yours, it can make one regret the past, never asking to go back to the past,..yet never being quite able to let it go.I know the reasons are valid, forever be part of who we are.(It was so good to hear from you after your long absence!! I too, have only been here off and have missed reading yours too!! So good to connect again, and hoping your voice will be on the air again soon!!:)
