Cerebellum's Synaptic Soiree
Lifted lightly from familiarity
Sleep's gesture caresses cells
Taken to nearby bewilderment
Where stagnancy busily dwells

Liquid lambent shooting star forms fragment
Vapid vexations vanquished in fantasy's fire
Mist masked span transcends measurement
Vision's fusion surpasses language quagmire 

Imprisoned waking cognition 
held in category's secure structure

Pickling with delight 
purge fruits of no blight
plus condiments right 
pepper, garlic white
pleasing appetite…

Pickled  relish
powerful dish
prods diet wish
propels weight-swish…

Pickles’ glow
pot luck flow
plates follow…

Darkness cry for light
A world of darkness that's a void of emptiness inside
A bottomless pit that has no end as you fall deeper
A wall of shame showing past regrets you cover and hide
A waterfall of sadness and sorrow that never dries it's a...Read More

Sat I engaged and talking
You’d not listen, you are not listening

While I voiced myself, expressiveness and flocking

Gone are the wretched times he puked in the sink

But he remembers the vile vomit coloured in pink

Blood and acid flushed away from churning bile

"Why is that?" You asked me.
