L. B. Mek

A classic


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.

            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.

              • Goldfinch60

                • 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! 🍻
