    Poem Commentary

    So this is what happens when the body and mind are on different paths. One of them has to die for the other to be dominant...because they no longer wish to coexist. For the body to have its way...it must kill the mind. For the mind to enslave the body...and make it do all sorts of crazy things in public...it must "kill" it. This is a conversation between those two entities. I did not label the parts so you can guess at which part is the mind and which part is the body. Enjoy if you will :)

    The Misconceived Symphony Of Synergy


    Why must I die....for you to live?
    Do you remember all the joy that you used to give?
    Maybe I’ve gone crazy.
    Maybe I’m dead wrong.
    Maybe I cut myself...
    and I bled this song.

    Why must I die?

    Why must you create the hate...
    that ingratiates the state of this evasive fate?
    I’m perplexed in this pervasive place.
    Am I a perpetual patron...
    or a paper weight?

    Do I buy now just to take away...
    or sit and do nothing...just a vacant stay.
    Do I fly high like paper planes...
    or dwell nightly ‘pon memory
    and hatred’s lane?

    Am I proactively exchanging lanes...
    or merely standing pat to await the reins?
    Am I acting...to vacate these chains...
    or simply lying flat...
    content to wait...
    for change?

    Why must I die....for you to live?
    Do you remember all the joy that you used to give?
    Maybe I’ve gone crazy.
    Maybe I’m dead wrong.
    Maybe I cut myself...
    and I bled this song.

    Why must I die?

    If the absence of evidence isn’t the evidence of absence...
    then how do I explain how my lack of presence...happens?
    While my body’s in a black pit...
    my mind’s intergalactic...

    My receptors receive static...
    while I’m trapped in the attic...
    the whiskers of a catfish...
    tickle my synapses.

    I’m disconnected from the masses...
    they are all captives...
    believing they are active...
    ... I’m beleaguered by these tactics.

    I leave these worldly themes...
    to the fiends and the fascists...
    and retire to my space station...
    overlooking Atlantis.

    Overcooking the atlas...
    my world is blazing...
    the fact that I’ve been gone this long...
    is just...
    amazing.

    Why must I die....for you to live?
    Do you remember all the joy that you used to give?
    Maybe I’ve gone crazy.
    Maybe I’m dead wrong.
    Maybe I cut myself...
    and I bled this song.

    Why must I die?

    Disassociation of the entities....
    a crisis of the inner kind...
    or one of the identity?

    If I motion to deny them both...

    how much energy...
    is left for the inner me?

    The power and the synergy...
    the showers of the imagery...
    the hours of efficiency...
    the blueprints and the finishing...

    which led to this epiphany...

    without a sound body and mind...
    .
    .
    .
    .
    there can be no symphony

    Your writing tone has a distinct familiarity but is most contemporary in your observation, witty and refreshing as well. such a surprise and wonderful viewpoints on the interesting relationships you have chosen. I am happy to come back again and again especially when I need to smile. Thank you

    Thank you ken...Malikism...I like that lol.

    Poetry is not the expression of personality but an escape from personality.
