Listless Gaze

transfixed I stumble down shifting halls of my angst my distress a cold stale breath stagnates and permeates its doom onto my essence. beguiled I entomb myself in the moment asphyxiating flailing clawing grasping for desperately disintegrating walls. abdicated I capitulate to the lair that cold cavity pit of dread that pool of tears where my devotion thrashes plangently. interred in the filth of want of need of putrefying wonder entombed within every pore every inch of my desolation. moribund I turn to stone my listless gaze fixated ruefully on the luminance the far distant light where steadfast dim hope resides.

You are wasted here in the gelatinous consommé...you are clearly a real poet, a WRITER. My writing is thoroughly put to shame. I love this, most of what I am reading in your portfolio is exceptional and of a very high standard. Most poems of yours, I have had the pleasure to read so far, exceed POTD - and it astounds me why no comments yet. Yet, it doesn't astound me, why no comments yet. :) Leanne

Haha, loved your last comment. I was troubled that day. I do sometimes think it's overkill on some days. Thank you so much, your commenting really makes me grateful for you. And no, I fucking don't mean that assifuckingnine "appreciate you" phrase that's going around. File it with "It is what it is."
