Albatross(Anxious Swells)


Albatross(Anxious Swells) 

what have I forgotten?
soaring sails, and rippling entrails,
seep across my closed eyes,
in the stillness of my laughter,
I coaxed a pain of unimaginable things

set to wander upon thoughts;
that hold my heart captive
race into happy dances;
of my neurological musings –
my mind…

wondering into playing fields,
they trample hidden attacks
formed within this brain –
sneaking phantom whispers;
of past aches[raging future pangs]

quandaries playing karmic-type worlds,
digging(dug) similar dreams –
unspoken, utterly exposed,
standing still,
same exact place –
what have I forgotten?

    Wow. I’m not even sure where to begin. That piece was so good. What have I forgotten? For me has a special meaning as PD robs me of my abilities I’m not even sure about what I don’t know anymore because my short term and recall processing centers are fried. So wow. Cool words.

    • Benjamin that is awesome to hear! I have been pondering the word albatross for several days. It was not until yesterday morning that these words came to me. I kept hearing in my head, “What have I forgotten?” I typed it out and then, the rest of the words starting flowing from the visuals in my head.

      I almost deleted them, but felt a strong, “No” and it ended up spinning into the end of the poem. 🙂 I do not normally share my poetic processes because people tend to think I am whacky. I guess I am, who cares!

      I too struggle with short term memory because the way my sensory processing is connected in my brain. It also get affected from my anxiety disorder at times. Shh! Lol!

      I am so glad that these words had meaning to you too. Thank you for sharing that it means a lot.

  2. This whole line gave me chills running down my spine.

    The future aches with honey, its only a matter of time if the ants don’t lick the moist from the moon.

    You are such a gifted soul and with so much heart and passion. I am glad we are friends…:)

    I will be posting my new blog today….Sorry for the delay I had to attend matters of my girlfriends health.

    • Thank you Charlie! Oh! That is fantastic to hear, “chills!”

      “The future aches with honey, its only a matter of time if the ants don’t lick the moist from the moon.” Oooo! Love this! It is now swarming through my head like a bunch of bantering bumble bees, next door.

      I am glad we are friends too. Will have a read of your post shortly. I do hope your girlfriend is well!

  3. I enjoyed the navigational experience really. As I have been searching round the internet, I could see that I have to
    utilize something apart from Tumblr. Thanks for the attention opening experience
