Taking back a Disregarded Epiphany

Updated on January 22, 2014
I'm the disregarded poet 
A shepherd of woolless sheep 
My words don't rhyme 
Or fall in line, 
They punch holes through 
The barricades of society 

I often awake at night  
I don't know if I'm alive or dead 
Fighting off the sudden urge 
To set my mattress a flame 
You can't think of a word 
That surpasses desire 
Bound my girl to my wrists, 
don't speak of a thing 
That you might have missed. 

I've forgotten all of you already, 
Me and my queen will get higher 
Point us to the cosmos 
And set this hideous earth on fire

Source

Sleeping Muse

A quiver
Of lucid dream arrows
Fire at will
Just take me with you

Tossing
Turning
Help me surrender

Gently 
Madly
Float me
To your private cloud

Gradually 
Rapidly
Scream
Like a Wild Cat

Lucidly
Dream of me
Dreaming of you
The maddest things
With a smile so heavy

Awake with me
Under the night sky
Lets share a bowl of noodles
And paint each other 
Into the surroundings

      Jodah, I'm glad you can feel an impact from my poetry. I feel that the more raw and real your writings are, the heaver of an influence they will have on the reader. I appreciate your time!

      Keep punching holes...yes! I love the "in your face" style of writing you do. Yet the second poem is gentle and quite different which is also a treat to see varied emotions.

      Love the last lines about sharing a bowl of noodles and painting each other...a great image in my mind. Your writing is far more interesting to read than most I've seen on hub. Thanks for sharing it!
