Into The Flesh – Day 07

Posted in Writing with tags , , , on 21/11/2021 by GeoSolus

“Raw nerves can become second nature. The twitching brought on by years of blows can become a still cold ready to erupt into a burst of extreme violence at the slightest physical contact. Tread lightly the closer you get and announce that you are coming before even thinking about taking a step.’

‘Is life important to you?’

‘Mine? Yours? In general?’

‘In general.’

‘A life worth living is important.’

‘What’s a life worth living.’

‘One where you achieve what you want without destroying others.’

‘Have you destroyed others?’

‘It’s always an option but never my intent.’

‘Is that a yes?’

‘Not that I’m aware of.’

‘Okay, I think a drink and maybe some background music is in order. Any objections?’

‘Go for it.’

‘Do you like Miles Davis?’

‘I prefer Coltrane.’

‘Coltrane it is. Whiskey?’

‘How about bourbon this time?’

‘Bourbon it is. Will that lighten up the mood?’

‘It will put me in a different one.’

‘One that will tell me what is chewing your brain?’

‘Nope.’

‘Then I guess we just drink and listen to the music.’

‘Sometimes it is the only way.’

She peered in to the devils eyes

And saw innocence

Her questions answered

With sincerity

Answers

That would sow a grain of change in her mind

AWake Dreamer 2I never fear for you
You are too strong
And inspire a desire
I haven’t felt in so long
But I look out just the same
As I know the world and its games
And I want you to shine
Like you do
And I want you to shine
Beyond anything I could imagine

As Above

She lay her eyes upon an image of the heavens at night and said: “I do not recognise any of these constellations.” To which came the reply: “That is because you have spent your life staring at the wrong stars.”As Above

You don’t see you
The way I do
The lines you draw
When you close your eyes
The curve of your spine
When you reach deep inside
The corners of your lips
That are almost a smile
That is the magic
That is you
That is the magic
Of which you are now aware

Dice

We play a dangerous game
Not for the gains
But because death is a certainty
Whether we play or refrain…

The Slow Burn

A question, a quib
And a misty eyed lady
Wanting straight answers
And getting a maybe

A tango of words
A side step, a charm
He understands hurt
But means her no harm

A mingle of manners
A mystic charade
Where one wants to touch
What the other can’t save

The lost and the found
Exchange their position
As a deep sense of duty
Meets a mind on a mission

The 23rd

Barely more than children
Discovering secrets
Those emotions
Under skin
Touched
A revealing shiver
Shining eyes
An intimate breath shared
An innocence discovered
Thoughts lost in the other
A new secret comes in to being
With a promise made

Dancing With Ghosts

This trauma taunts
The wish and the will
As the wall
Starts to fall
In silence
They’re still
Ready or not
A hesitant touch
That moment is now
But it all feels too much
And the hurt cuts it short
As the old wounds still bleed
And they bow to the sorrow
So that anger can’t feed
And the silence returns
Quite different this time
As they both feel like victims
Of another’s dark crime
And the warmth turns quite cold
And a tear is held back
And regret and the longing
Almost feel like attacks
On a moment so perfect
Even time had to say:
You should not let the past
Darken the day
