Here's mah poem guyzzz

1.2
i cannot. i cannot feasibly breath. With any ease. As my lungs are squeezed- in
.thought- I had done enough. but -WAIT. FOCUS. AGAIN,
1. task to handle.
2. (what was THAT again?)- shit...

i, i, no,
I can-NOT!
feasibly list out my daily duties like some Shakespeare sonnet songs of swooning stuck streaming in a buffering loop on youtube or whatever it may be can be-

CAN'T. I CAN'T. I CAN'T-- (gaaaaaaaasp), for air
Breathe. Now slowly... sleep, at last-- alas...


I've become

adrift with amnesia...

a gift of guillibility and galvinized
procrastination-



yes, upon tomorrow's wake it shall be
better to daily 1.
delay and 2.
dally and dismember
my
thoughts apart

-wait. FOCUS. Again,

letmepiecetogetherwhatmymindcanthinkoflikeabstractartandvomitedrainbows- oh no, no
NO. I see no colors,
a BW Print-errrr-
errr-
errr-
or

,focus, again,

just DO it, pull the trigger
like Nike with a check, a swoosh
a'round my (neck).

it's, "Poetic Suicide"

I strangle empty
thoughts, the leash around my mind
mutes my swan song.

This is the End,

I've forgotten what checks I owe,
it's-
-Due. to such greek gods of victory or mythology or,
Jesus!
how am I supposed to remember what herculean labors I must impart or
sacrifice for angry mothers,

-again
.
1.
expect my

death 2.
day

The following was inspired by an actual portrait I saw years ago at an art museum. I can't vouch for the quality of my own work, though.

Ode to an Old Portrait

Art is that which carries on
And remains both young and gay,
Though the master is long gone
And youth and innocence passes away.
The face within that peeling frame
Is ageless, despite the ages long.
Human life might be fleeting,
But such mastery shall linger on.

How bright the young man’s eyes still burn!
Their bright colors still remain
Upon that canvas, dim and old,
Within that chipped and blistered frame.
Time, it seems, has yet to steal
The gold that shimmers in his hair;
Glittering as if the sun above
Had seen its own light captured there.

The young man’s lips are parted still,
As if he were about to speak,
And time, it seems, has yet to draw
The rosy blossom from his cheek.
His surroundings have long faded,
Almost beyond all recall.
Only his image, fair and bright,
Remains, and that alone is all.

Each portrait has a tale to tell,
And at one time each one was known,
But Time passes swiftly, leaving naught
But fragments when at last it’s flown.
Though this young man might have matured
Into a fiend hideous and vile,
His legacy remains ever young,
Like that lonely, haunting, painted smile.

Eh, I used to be afraid of not finding love. Then I just resigned myself to loneliness and started lusting after much older men.

Winner is Soadfa, runner up is Duchess, third is my niggah.
Really enjoyed the sensory image in Duchess's poem, it was very nice http://i.imgur.com/8gTn00t.png
But Soadfa's allusions and breaking of form to further support his tone really got me.

My niggah's win is self-explanatory for that beautiful work of art.

Prizes have been distributed-
Soadfa, you're the new writing moderator for the months of March and April.

Well, I might enter some of them anyway. Azathoth knows I could use some additional stress outlets.
