The Blush Vertebrae

Icicles of vulnerability

dangle over my crucified nerves

Leisurely indulging

a mass consumption of integrity

Thickening the backbone

Watching frustrations corrode

Tortuously eyeballing the poison

seep in my blush vertebrae

Struggling between the roar of

disarray and the calm light

Hacking up chunks of sincerity

Clearing my throat to voice

the sound of everlasting waves

from my vibrant spine

Drops of sorrow fall to my feet

Faith never misled my center


  1. OMG I wish I had written this. It is EXACTLY what I feel today. These words are SO descriptive. I attempted today to say something similar. But nowhere near as well as you have done it. That is if I have understood this piem correctly.
