NIGHTMARES FROM AN UNBLEACHED SOUL
Keep the head down, take in a breath Arms tight across the chest, hold hold legs are rooted to the floor, hold hold Relase stone shoulders, and Collapse and sprawl, release Exhale Exhale Exhale Walking through a crowd Stop to find a calling path Others push past, not perceived Invisible to all that mill about Need to scream gets cancelled out Deep breath in, and hold Sit at home, so few reach out The initiator receives no replies Excuses made feel like lies While gatherings swirl about Not a second thought, or third Deep breath in, and hold Shutting down becomes the norm Someone checks in, clouds start to fray Disconnect. Nothing changed anyway Find happiness, find joy Can't take in, they bounce away Hold breath deep, then exhale Look forward, but it's a blur Calls for help aren't heard Windows beckon to so much more Stillness seeps inside Distress and fear halts the way Deep breath in, hold, exhale What is superficial? What is true? So confused as what to do Disconnect and hide Completely numb inside Breath, hold, exhale Deep breath in Hold Hold Exhale Deep breath in Hold Hold Hold hold
I don’t care if Monday’s Blue or Black or it makes me hold my head or even if it all falls apart…We’re in the last week of the AtoZ Blog Challange with the letter W.
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, I know that. Many will need some tweaking if I take this further. I would just love to hear some, or all of these, put to music. Anyone knows, please email me.
My theme for this year’s AtoZ Blog Challenge is: Nightmares from an Unbleached Soul. 26 lyrical poems during the month of April (no Sundays). It started on April 1st and ends this Thursday on April 30th. After that, a week or two later you’ll be able to find Reflections on the experience. I hope you found new blogs to like and follow. If you still wish to, go to The Master List.
I’ve asked a few questions along the way: what genre of music you think suits the lyrics best? Who or what style of music was in my head when I wrote these? My last one for the week:
- Why Nightmares From An Unbleached Soul?
- I’m curious.: How do you interpret it
- for yourself ?
- why do you think I chose that as my theme title?
Comments are always welcome.
