#TSM 209 — Limbo, or Black Days


Image source

Akilter, lying down — even
as you see me upright –
a blank in kelp bed, fathoms
below, asleep, await.
My fate unknown as yet.

Will it be angel’s lift
that buoys to sunrise?
Or fey stones, that weigh
and sink beleaguered,
deflated organs of light?

My sight occluded,
my guesses gone;
laced, blind, mind-
body tethered husk,
I dwell in ever-dusk.

    Living in dusk is no joy
    morning never comes
    Nor does night for me
    to dream
    I like your write, like out heroin, there isn’t an end? To be continued? 🙂

    I love the questions in this and the thoughts it stirs like the wind itself. So glad you are here Lisa! We have missed you! (Sorry it took me so long to get here. It was a busy weekend.) I hope you had a lovely Mother’s Day!
