Black Coffee drips
                 Periodically

As the silence screams to be heard

Confusion
            Permeates
                       Settles in
And (inevitably )         Takes over

The resonating drip
                   drip
                       drip
                           -plink-

Drip

Pounds against the hard, scratched surface of the table
                                     Seeing the words

                              Listening to their sordily rapid movements

But not hearing
               -not feeling
                          -not touching

Frustrates the senses beyond ( basic )
Instinctual insanity

Clawing and scortching the page with eyes ablaze

The body            Tightens         Tenses and       Clenches

Futile tears of Frustration form as the muted

                 ( raging )

Howl of a woman undone erupts from within

The drip of black liquid divides

The Voices - of - Silence; drip-slash

Drip-slash.Drip-slash
                     Drip ( slash )

Blood throbs between the temples were an ache

             Drip...slash

Gathers like a posse of corroding famished scavengers

Raking through the dregs of black on white

Picking up pieces of ( loose ) leaf litter

Pictures form

             BURN
       ( disintergrate )

Then return as the percolator ( finally ) snaps into place.

               ~Ripple~
ok so i hope that that peeved you off as much as studying did to me....   ...black black coffee...black black coffee....*floats away*

This was pretty dark poetry cherish. I liked it so much though. Simply amazing.
I read it Natalia and she really liked it. Keep posting and i'll keep reading.

I was born myself, raised myself, and will continue to be myself. The world will just have to adjust.

I'm in love with my shadow
I admire it daily

You already know how much I liked this poem. I really do hope that you win in that thing with this poem (I'm sorry I can't remember the name of the publication thing). You did really well with this one-LOL- it was the first time i thought you had "talent" of any sort LOL...I kid!
Good job on this one-it kinda puts me in awe of you-yes Patrick admits to being in awe of you!...only in the slightest though-LOL!
Bye Cherish bebe

hey cher! I had to read through it twice to actually understand it, but it's been awhile since I've read anything of real meaning that didn't have to do with school or some other useless thing that has to do with work. Sad, sad little life I've started to lead, haha. Anyway, enjoyed the read twice.

luv ya!!
