Foundering Hope


Crimson shards of crystal longing
trickle dawn
into the torrential chaos
which is my mind.
Shedding complacence,
it weathers my resolve,
stokes the flames of madnessí pull,
entices me to release the chains
of this sanity
which threatens to submerge
the hopes
of the dreamer,
I,
beneath a torpid shroud
which
is the vicious bane
named society.

Amazing what you can do with words! You should have a big office somewhere..with an oak desk...and a fax machine!

You do have a way with words Chris. This was wonderfully complex yet so very simple. I also love the way you presented this piece. Bravo.

wow Chris...the imagery in this one is perfect...very nice...
take care, janet marie

 Now for me some words come easy...
But I know that they don't mean that much
Compared with the things that are said when lovers touch.
You never knew what I loved in you--
I don't know what you loved in me...
Maybe the picture of somebody you were hoping I might be...
How long have I been sleeping-
How long have I been drifting alone through the night...
How long have I've dreaming I could make it right...
If I closed my eyes and tried with all my might
To be the one you need...
Jackson Browne

This is lonely and sad and distant...Not of your mood of late...As usual, your work leaves one wondering...(A good thing, by the way...)

The dreamer, huh??? We all have to dream Chris...it's the only escape from that bitter thing they call Reality!!!!

 Open arms can be the most fragile in the world...
