This Unbearable Embodiment



Assimilated now in the sapien spells,
how fully embodied I totally become.
Drown in a grail of physicality's wells,
a rescusitated begotten Adamic son.

Where does the spirit hide it's blister
of moulten euphoria in canopy flesh?
When every quivering nerve in fester,
trampolines signals in cellular mesh.

I'm a satellite beam of warped chaos,
reading every breeze on five senses.
Pulsing miasma of primate gene-floss
gleaned physical in temporal valences.

This succor of dimension's finite blend,
narrowing bandwidths of focused glow,
the rainbow fireworks of emotion I tend,
animate only this corporeal meat I know.

All the bearing stresses come in decay,
that transient sapping of a dynamic rot,
nibbling the dwindled core of my array,
lessening daily until now I'm almost not.

Oh spirit, I trust you patiently await me,
dare not forsake nor abandon please.
Rescue this prodigal one, set him free,
for my humanity has me on my knees!

Tracy Bollinger

Always liked to write and have written poems periodically over the years. I've never shared them withanyone except for immediate family. Decided to take the plunge and put some out 'there'. But bearwith me, I don't really know what I'm doing. This is therapy of sorts and I hope to let go of the need to rhyme. It's a mental condition. I recently found out my grandmother used to rhyme all herletters to anyone. Go figure. I hope you all enjoy my ranting! I do like what I've seen other's post. more…
