2009 A Recovery From Her Spiderweb It had been 10 years A cold February Kentucky wind Through a panic call I guess united by fears Silence, on a dark night drive Clarity, lost through the wires Arrivals to the death of Indigo. A foolish man falls prey To a Jekyll and Hyde constellation Her screams, her pills, her knives & blades threatening I have to be bare like the roses Or else, And now throw me to the pond, Leave me a fish wanting to die. In obscurity, floating with a manic dead mind. You tried to weaken me, with words, with threats Used me, Driven me away to a trail of trauma Like a long walk into a viewless forest. Planted seeds of fire to my heart. Trust comes on like impulsivity now In a fright, For what is real And what is a monster with soft skin I blister to my hands from a false touch. That spreads like a virus. Current bio for Fevers of the Mind’s David L O’Nan editor/writing contributor to blog. Hard Rain Poetry: Forever Dylan Anthology available today!
