NIGHTMARES FROM AN UNBLEACHED SOUL

OMBROS

DOWNPOUR

MONSOON

DELUGE

DELUGE

DELUGE

Hide in the bathtub
Cover up your ears
Rain is beating hard
On your thin windows
Nothing will alleviate 
This nibbling of fear

A Thunderstorm arriving
The bolts hit where they care
The rivers all have flooded
Onto roadways and everywhere
You take a shot of bourbon
To wash away the trembling 
of your hands.

DELUGE
DOWNPOUR
DELUGE
TORRENTIAL RAIN
DELUGE
DELUGE
DELUGE

Drowning, Drowning
Yet completely dry
Bloated bodies float along
In your fucked up mind
Drowning, Drowning
It's not Chinese Water Torture
Or water boarding at Guantanamo Bay
But the fear blows your mind

DELUGE
DROWN
DELUGE
GO UNDER
DELUGE
BEAT DOWN

Ombros, Ombros, Ombros, Ombros...

MUSICIANS, or people who know musicians, hear my call
I would love to find someone to collaborate with. Not every one of the 26 Lyrical Poems are winners, and most will need some tweaking. I would just love to hear some, or all, of these put to music.

My theme for this year’s http://www.a-to-zchallenge.com/ is Nightmare from an Unbleached Soul. 26 Lyrical Poems throughout April, using the letters of the alphabet as our daily jumping off point. If you want to find blogs that match your interests, check out the Master List.

Comments are always welcome. Why you do, or don’t, helps me in honing my work.

Thanks for stopping by.
