My paragon

J J 

To what part of me is compensated?
This longing to remedy my despair.
Eminent beyond and above repair.
I grow as dark as the passing moon shade.
Forgotten, reminded and aggravated.
My angst is evermore present and elevated.
Must I amend my character and modify my feature.
Am I so flawed, I must defend every league of my depth?
A worn out self-diluted attempt to call upon a painful creature.
Pain as numbless, as a hole is gaping wide.
A knife taken from my back and placed in my side.
Blood flows free without the need to break the bleed.
This road I follow doesn't seem to pardon my sorrow; nor refrain
This storm in me, created this force,
Whereas the hot air of deception,
collides with my bitter cold obsession.
Winds blown by contrition with rueful rain.
This self-afflicted acknowledgement of worth,
Has me down in the mouth,
My only relief, is to hemorrhage my spirit within,
Through a ventilation duct between my fingers and pen.
To employ the ink as the grease.
Venting the letters of my soul upon a sheet,
A soulless vault, containment of self-release.
My marathon,
Running exhaust of loathing, my heart content,
My paragon!

My friends call me JJ. I’m A word Enthusiast. A word -smith to many. I enjoy the dance between adjectives, nouns and pronouns. I enjoy the rush of verbs, adverbs, and Intransitive Verbs. I enjoy the metaphors that link the worlds between figures of speech an dialects. From disturbing acronyms to Predicative Adjectives. They keep my mind in this race of who is next on the totem pole of literature. I really enjoy feedback good or bad so bring it on. I will always out do myself. By the way the reason I right so much on death is cause I’ve experienced it in more than one way …so I write to get it out. I have a quote of mine I tend to fend" Manipulation is a face without a mouth, eyes without lids, ears without drums, and a brain without a mind. " please be kind and enjoy. Be mindful Not Malleable. more…
