A classic

L. B. Mek


Puffed sky cotton, twirling

calligraphy sliced, weightlessly - it flies

warning of longing’s, tightly grasped purpling  


a silhouette, like all and none before

mere glimpse – sprouting, tunnel-mouth gasping

lingering trail of decimation: yearning’s mourning.


Eager green sprouts, startled leaping

tepid sparks: dowsed early

for out-of-season, dreaming.


Undeterred, veins throb an off-beat melody

unbridled youth’s, inert unmistakability

for a lifetime cradled memory’s: crystallised beauty.

    So poetic
    As always sir, your poetry is charismatic

    • L. B. Mek

      such a wonderful adjective
      to tag my scribble with
      thank you, kind poet
      what an encouraging comment

      • spilleronsheet

        • L. B. Mek

          too often, your comments
          outdo my humble scribbles, lol
          thank you! my friend

        • dusk arising

          You have coined exactly how my reality began to singe its way through the clouds of "oh no, not consciousness" as slowly and painfully the regrets of the night before cruised drunkenly through my hung-over senses.
          The beauty of reality opened before me and i rushed for the bathroom overwhelmed.

          • L. B. Mek

            Ha! what a wonderful image
            was hoping my writing
            was past the stage
            of making people vomit
            at a mere glimpse... lmao
            'and miles to go before I sleep
            and miles to go before I sleep'

            • dusk arising

              LOL wasn't your poetry sent me to the bathroom my friend.

              Those lifetime memories will always be there Mek.


              • L. B. Mek

                What a reassuring comment
                I truly hope so, my friend
                for they are the true treasures
                we're guaranteed in life

              • SureshG

                You have conjured up youths longing, in a collection of phrases, a rarity.

                • L. B. Mek

                  I think that's a perfect summation
                  not sure about its rarity
                  but I humbly appreciate
                  your encouraging words, dear Poet

                • Neville

                  .. poetry personified sir ................. you have my seal of approval πŸ™‚

                  • L. B. Mek

                    your approval, fuels
                    my belief, that I may one day
                    write poetry, deserving
                    of all your recognition and support..
                    thank you, Hyung
                    salut! 🍻
