~ Misanthropic Flagellation ~

Black, Blue, and Blood,

Discordia reigns,

Forcing submission, acceptance,

Of all of the intangible, abstract, nebulous

Heart-ache I rail against.

Removing any choices,

Taking away freedom

And imprisoning me

Within self-imposed isolation.

This heart has been raped

By another’s thoughtless ego.

The passion refuses to submit, accept.

It shifts forms, morphs  – sometimes obsession,

Sometimes veiling itself as apathy.

Denial.

Repression.

Regression.

Aggression.

None resemble a workable solution.

Constant inner turmoil grinds,

Wears away, erodes the ability

To even care, anymore.

Numbness,

Leads to

Dumbness,

Leads to

Desperation to simply escape.

No one human being

Is worth this depth of

Emotion.

And Time proposes

Snake-oil remedies

For a wound still raw,

Which aches to be just another scar.

About dragonkatet

Regarding the blog name, Dragon’s Dreams ~ The name comes from my love-affairs with both Dragons and Dreams (capital Ds). It’s another extension of who I am, a facet for expression; a place and way to reach other like-minded, creative individuals. I post poetry and images that fascinate or move me, because that’s my favorite way to view the world. I post about things important to me and the world in which we live, try to champion extra important political, societal and environmental issues, etc. Sometimes I wax philosophical, because it’s also a place where I always seem to learn about myself, too, by interacting with some of the brightest minds, souls and hearts out there. It’s all about ‘connection(s)’ and I don’t mean “net-working” with people for personal gain, but rather, the expansion of the 4 L’s: Light, Love, Laughter, Learning.
