Dark Choices

——

Hallucinating…

Salivating….

On the banks

 now enervating…

Feel the breeze

invigorating…

where to jump?

 quick calibrating…

Deep inside

infatuating…

Sinking down…

illuminating…

Resting sweet

invalidating…

Forever Night..

asphyxiating…

down below…

There is no glow

deep beneath

the river’s flow…

  2. Salivating! You will when you see an amazing seafood dinner I had over the weekend. Watch this space! Err.. Actually not this space because this is your blog. Watch my space! Not myspace. But my blog! Sigh. You get the idea.
    -hazrock, almost went parasailing.

  3. I like the photo it is kind of mysterious and on the other hand very soft even the poem is beauty like always, like this lines even they make me feel sad. Have a great father’s day.

  4. Reminds me of a child-like glee, standing before something worth having and about to plunge. Liked all the “ing” words…..gave the poem a certain appeal. Beautiful photo. HaPpY FaThEr’S dAy!!!! Enjoy, enjoy, enjoy. Sam 🙂

  5. A piece filled with doubles and conflicts, joy and sadness…quite a heartful piece of work. Hope your day is going well.:)

  6. You had me at “DARK CHOICES!”. Ha ha ha This was a swelling mix of dizzy. It made me want to dive under to see what I would discover, but then I thought the imaginations you triggered were far better. Liked this very much and the image!
