Unobtrusive Sun

Encroachment

In the quiet of the night

When I try to slumber

Thoughts come rolling in

Like tides of emotional reactions

Like factions of the heart

Actions of the truth

 

Manic highs or seething lows could not render

 Could not decalcify the solitude

Of honestly objectified Encroachment

Put to motion by contriteness

And conviction of the soul

 

All to the forebearing completion of an undelivered lie

Brought to light by undeniable confirmation

Manifested by the silent ringing of the conscience

Who bears witness to these wild ties

 

But who's to write our rite of passage?

Watch and wait for the Encroachment

    What a powerful write.

    The silent ringing of the conscience
    The forebearing completion of an undelivered lie
    Decalcify the solitude

    Just a few of my favourite lines

    I wish these feelings were kept to the midnight hours. Sometimes they are all consuming ...

      Thanks! I found this piece from about a year ago and forgot it existed. It was really a midnight rambling but I thought I'd hold onto it. I truly appreciate the kindness!

      This is the first of your postings I have read and I'm not disappointed - what a powerful and absorbing work - will look at your other postings.

        Thank you Michael. I'm honored to hear that since your writings are very compelling to me. Looking forward to your next work!

          I am foremost an artist and love abstract work - tomorrows poem reflects this but it is very short - a senryu in fact .
