Romantic Bloom

I’m Leaning Towards Insane

This teardrop RIDE INSIDE I HIDE

until their wetness SUBSIDES, 

of their GLOW and FLOW

I KNOW Their MEANING so DEMEANING

 

I’m LEANING towards INSANE PAIN

I can BLAME  it on SHAME

however LAME Life isn’t TAME

Like a OBTUSE EXCUSE

 

I LOSE ! Yet I have to

be STRONG, Not WRONG

LONG as I LIVE, Life Can GIVE

Not IMPASSIVE I could SEE, and BE

 

Retain my DIGNITY My WEALTH of HEALTH

Is stacked upon my SHELF!, my mind is  HEALING and DEALING

my soul REELING,  My ears

LISTENING and Teardrops GLISTENING

      I know you'll think I'm sad
      but I'm leaning towards insane
      and it's driving me mad.

      Great write.

        Cutenesses! You’re far to talented to be insane! Best to you hope all is well

        Your strength pushes out of your words and you will heal, deal and glisten in your life.

        To me this reads like a mindful assessment of self in preparation to reset ones self upon a more positive track for future wellbeing. With a lot of colour along the way.

          Thanks Dusk, it’s exactly what The thought process was, while trying to adhere to the
          strict rules of This poetic form!

          Thanks for stopping by

            Rules? What rules?... personally i don\'t use someone else\'s rules when i\'m writing. There are so many different styles of writing here on mps... some are more formulae than poetry..... i just use my written words as a way to express my thoughts.... when i see some of the poetry where ends of lines rhyme then all to often it turns an otherwise good piece of writing into a nursery rhyme. But don't misunderstand me, yours is far from a nursery rhyme.

            Smilez, yesterday was the first day I didn’t

            Braids! Wink!
