This Day is Gone


Poem Commentary

felt like letting go for a while, let me know if you enjoyed it

This Day is Gone

destiny shadows over me
a quest to sanctuary
complacency my enemy
i must resist the vacuum of everyday velocity
i need this too much
im just wasting time
i cant help but feel im falling off surreal
alone and stoned
sometimes drinking to make pain rhyme
give me time
give me time
ive got one foot leading me astray
and i cant feel much of the rest of me
i must be losing my mind
i doubt every crime of passion
but i cant seem to stop my reaction
to her naked invitations
and who am i hurting or deserting
nothing more than faithless obscurity
worshipped idols of my childhood
decline into fables
of someone else's divine
church of symbols and design
im not worried
im just tired
bored of this place
its rules, its equilibrium
my inner ear unbalanced and queer
i cant help but let
whatever happens
im not upset
i deserve what i get
amused at your regret
like a record i play out
tune out the ordinary doubt
the sufferable disease of saying please
when you just want to explode into rage
and break through this cage
for no other reason
than to see the look on your face
and take away your tame safe place
the jungle devours and displaces
your manicured myopic world  
and i am finally hurled
into the chaos of my birth
and i drown in my death
i breathe in poison and i laugh
at the void beneath me
your worried lines strike hysterically
you have no idea of the life you lead
id rather bleed fire and writhe in brimstone
than spend another night
alone by your side
i cant help but hide
my sorrow and shame
i couldnt have chosen a better person to blame
for my  misery and our history
tomorrow ill wake up scrubbed clean of my  name
and this game we play each and every day
ill be on the highway
naked and unafraid
wishing for the next semi to take me away....

I liked this one a lot. I found it to be a strong and intense verse filled with the anguish of a man that's both distraught and lost. And yes, alcohol can make us forget, at least for a little while. But, no pun intended " It doesn't heal us when The Day is Gone!

You sure covered some ground on this one, lol! Btw, I myself have just had a couple drinkies! Don't tell anyone! I'm not gonna preach here, ok, I'm gonna preach here, lol! Alcohol and poetry (alcoetry?), although interesting to a certain degree, does not necessarily have a lengthy half-life! Forget Poe in that alleged context. Also, and however loosely, deeper writing comes better from the heart - without the liver being in-line! 'Alone by your side' - I bet many more feel this way (in both genders) than will be admitted. I've been there myself, surprisingly more emptiness than satisfaction. It's a very precarious balance between spirit and sexual drives. Keep your head on your shoulders, and don't beat yourself up so much. If you feel more, then you simply must process more! 1(ten)0

Nice purge! Filled with great references all the way through - too many to name. 10 from me.

wow amad you are one poet that always blows me away with what you write alot of though provoking things here but it all flows together perfectly your way with words is outstanding your a true artist poet that can write about many aspects of life great poem as always never expect anything less from you your talent shines in all that you write loved it thanks for sharing it with me a 10 for sure

Poetry is either something that lives like fire inside you or else it is nothing, an empty formalized bore around which pedants can endlessly drone their notes and explanations.
