My Irritations, Aggravations and Inspirations

March 19, 2011 ” silence”

balanced on a precipice
above the blazing black of a world
that was mine

staring over the brink
into desolate, destructive silence
without a sound

my mind is visions and remembrances
vivid and obscure as looking into the sun
or a fire

a momentary blindness
yet still seeing
spinning, swirling

vertigo
irresistible force draws me to my knees
before a wingless angel

reaching, I search for solid ground
overthrown by a lesser god
without words

falling
into nothingness tumbling
tumbling weightless

through blazing black
blacker and blacker
falling

wondering why, why
falling
wondering why
