Words of a Battered Mind

By Tony DeLorger © 2011

Inevitable confusion trips a mind so crisp, lost words in sentences depicts,

a battered mind once pliable and true, now seeking that illusory cue.

Vision forms and cursory storms and fashioned thoughts of fancy,

are driven to pen and back again, for expression in life’s romancing.


A soul transfixed by written trysts and dogged cloaked transgressions,

unlocks the human state of fear, the desperate longing passion.

It is but fate that guides us here, our mental anguish given,

to drag that fear from depths to words, our silent machinations.


Writers gather the fragment past and ‘smith its presentation,

explaining all that souls protest our battered minds elation.

For strife and scars are foods for right, a thinking sublimation,

transforming thought and poetic mirth into the ether station.


Conquests are short and snap the girth of ego’s pouted fashion,

divorced from memory the words of past relenting writer’s session.

Words of pomp and elegance floating through the ether,

captured cold and momentary, held by pen exemplary.


Fashioned fine and caring verse, a battered mind a scriber’s curse.

      Thanks for your kind words Pixienot. As age progresses the world and all its battering can have an affect on the creative mind. But in the end it is fodder to the stream of words writers use for expression. Glad you enjoyed my work.

      Tony, what a wonderful use of alliteration! I enjoyed reading it and I read it aloud.

      Your message was super. The mind is a strong muscle, but can become weak with words from others.

      I denoted a tone of sadness. I hope this was just good writing and not personal.

      Great writing. Voted up and awesome.
