Rusty spikes in my eyes

Bark and thorns of the Honey Locust

Bark and thorns of the Honey Locust (Photo credit: Wikipedia)

slenderly sliding deeper and deeper….

Opening a cavity to my buried thoughts…

Like a cracked dam

they begin to ooze out….

A secret here…

A secret there….

Rumors that I think I heard…

Confidences that were earned…

Breezes blowing through the trees…

Growing thorns beside the sea….

Saps my mental faculties…

Like syrup dripping from a tree….

Know that I so truly need.

to plug this hole inside of me….

  1. Your words just flow effortlessly David… even while you suffer with migraine 😦 you continue express in magical ways. I am sending healing energy to Florida to lift the ominous head pain. Know it all too well unfortunately. Great work but feel better!

        • Sigh…I know and that is truly no fun…The weird thing is that I typically feel and behave positively…Yet my writing wants to veer off…I just wrote something else that should be a love letter to the world buttttt…I’m not sure that it is…lol

  2. Maybe this is a good thing David. You may be cleansing yourself of the negative through your writing, and then you are unencumbered and freer living life. Hmmm… maybe I need to let my creative work ‘veer off’ — very hard for me to do for some reason. Ok – Love Letter to the World (positive or negative) I am totally looking forward to this one;)

      • πŸ™‚ really? Ok – I may have to write a poem about the nerve pain (think bones cut by broken glass) in my feet that this spine procedure caused!!! LOL! – not funny and hopefully tansient- but had to say ~ just don’t think my ick would come out as lyrical and poetic as yours! I better stick to ‘sappy’ !! I will look out for your Love Letter — know it will be another great piece. πŸ˜‰

  3. Hi David,

    Great post! You have allegorically linked migraine to thorns.
    It is the small things (like thorns) that prick with intensity.
    Makes one ponder how tiny ‘thorns’ can distress as such;
    how little thistles can stress as much.

    Have a nice day!

    • Yes!! But, I have had a couple of fractured arms, and I will take that pain over migraine pain any day…It’s shocking how bad they can be…Thank you for commenting, Chito

  4. What is oooozing out is the question. The spikes on the tree….very effective photo to match a very prickly and piercing poem. Love how you capture a mood with few words.
    πŸ™‚ Sam the Ram
