Leading Behind

the painting of pictures in the minds of readers of words Needs wetlip brush stroke consonants as complementary colors Rhythmic connotation rhymed alliteration as wet accentuation so their lack of concentration will allow initiation by sleight of hands of invitation to let forgiving magics fluidic flow in streams of splashing dashing flashing activation that lets the wetness of the darkness whisper slithery reactive to the painted light of reason reflecting faintly wetly on the wall Is it really there at all? A shiver of sensation a tingle in a fingertip That empty tasteless hollow feeling behind or in the ears some words are hard to follow and harder yet to find Using them is easier than leaving them behind In the walled wet halls of darkness By the looking glass of fears Instinctive genuflection Self reflective tears Salty recollections Chill cold years Sharp honed A shiver Pain It's gone again Or was it really There
