Indignitas

entry picture

Words withdrawn,

too difficult to utter.

We immerse ourselves in seas of frequencies not understood,

mis-interpreted, mis-used.

 

On-line segregation ensues. 

 

Our intentions unknowingly communicated in silence,

subtle images suggesting a desire to disconnect.

 

Our tongues devolve,

regressing from thought.

 

Cyclical behaviour has missed a curve.

An emergent trait has seeded, 

pollenating the suffocating rag weed of isolation and assimilation.  

 

Headlong to disaster we forge,

in silence we will expire.

A meek pathetic surrender and defeat.

 

A once raging fire of intellect,

snuffed out, deprived of its own oxygen.

Afraid of its potential.

 

Afraid to love, afraid to share.

Wow - it is indeed powerful words you utter Wolfie! I've read it now 4 times - each time a different line stands out, but for me the last 4 are the killers - perfectly summing it all up.

Powerful stuff here. I keep reading it over again to more fully appreciate all that's here.
