    Only ashes are left when pen and pad contact..



    My hands are like fire,
    Burning and branding words upon the page,
    They flow like lava from my pen.

    I'd like to take the ashes from the paper
    And spread them over my shoes,
    Rub them into my palms,
    So I might have a better grip and step.
    So I might dress myself in me.

    Drunkenness calls,
    wanting to rumble with my sobriety.
    I yearn to drink from inkbottles,
    But know thier sweat and tears
    Will help ingnite me further,
    Will make my hands too hot,
    And my words a widfire,
    Consuming me.

    I stand on a rooftop,
    Conflicted with my want of fire
    And my need to drench myself in water (liqour),
    So I jump into a pool of gasoline
    And slowly die with every cry and
    Utterance of my words.
    They shout and stab me,
    Leaving open wounds,
    And I look down at myself,
    Watching my blood dance with the flames,
    Letting myself melt into meaning....


    Take care, Hugh

    :wow: Hugh, this is a complicated and contemplative piece...my head is spinning! But I like that it shows both clear intent and obscurity at times...lot of passion in this piece! I really loved the whole thing but my very favorite line is below...I think we all want to "melt into meaning" at some point in our lives...so profound.

    Letting myself melt into meaning....

    Hey HUGH - Seems my Boy has been going through some THANGS since the last time we talked. This poem shows a lot actually - a blooming of sorts into................humanity. If that makes sense. Kinda like you've seen "more" of that which inspires you to write a totally different tableau of thoughts - Like the phoenix that blooms, burns; returns more artistic ------- more.....real perhaps?

    This poem is a complicated write. But it really speaks loudly of the artiste that just simply wants to BE.

    That very last stanza is mind-DEEP - the last line is titilatting to me in a way, as I know this feeling oh-so-well. To think that there could be another who just simply wants to BE...

    Let it burn!
    Thanx for the poem.

    Jacquii.
