Words Keep on Flying Past

Words fly past

Informing me

That poetry they shall be

If only I can hear the silent flapping rhythms

Lure them to my pen

Capture and release

Those fleeting impressions

Moody angels circling within


Interplanetary heaven

Angels times seven


This week has been taken over by

Demons devils imps

All playing with my fragile sense of self

Pulling the rug out from beneath my happy feet

It’s hard to feel complete

When your very thoughts are constantly stolen

By satanic yodelling anxiety beasts

Ululating a deafening dirge

My sense of me is dying

A quiet suffocation

Under pox-ridden blankets

Of stress

And doubt


Swimming through blackened tides eyes shut

I sense the winged beings above

Knowing we’ll never meet

I knock as if to greet

Upon a window


No one hears sees cares

As the water rises

And I drown

In expectations

Under glass


Words just keep on flying past
