Within The Sleepless Still

Listen to poem:
Before my breath touches the morning air, My thoughts in taciturnity upon suppression of solitudes… Inhibition initiates interdiction within the hibernal hollow, Where time a frozen fortress amidst the saturninity still. The covertness of oblivions obedient in their absolution, Daunting dorms of doldrums debilitate in their debacle… Where the vaporous voids echo in their virginal vacuums, The muted madness mandates the asphyxiated air. Segregated silent sorrows suffice within my chaotic cage. Where ignorance incubates immoral idols imposing… The hellion hordes encroach the silent sentinels standing, The laconism within my heart erupts with forbidden fury. The silence sings with thunder as a tear touch’s the ground, My empty eternal eyes dormant amongst horizons hid… My mind in a decadent declination before walls of illusions, And thus before a wounded wake, I am trapped in tangled time.

WW, wonderful use of elevated vocabulary and alliteration. Love the image presented in the first line of your last stanza. Silence so complete that a tear sounds like thunder as it hits the ground.

Great use of your extensive vocabulary WW... Nice last stanza, can silence sing with thunder, or is that lightning? Lol.. Congratulations on your placement in the contest..
