invisibly chained

I cannot recall the number of times

he had advised not to revisit the ghostworlds of regret

as if they were joy destroying wastelands

parched,occupied by minions of a strange purpose

a dead fleshed country,its blood long ago spilled

or a gateway opening into mind raping voids

threatening pits entitled despair.


For he himself had known only too well

their clinging powers,their false honey traps

how they can trawl you back to their painful exhumations

or drag you down below their sad surfaces

and how omnipresent  are those blurred spectorial images

rancidly reverberating 

enforcing thoughts to dance again and again in whirls of old losses

even after decades.


Yes,he knew well of the damage

the unstoppable temptations to return

to scar to sacrifice promises of the future

as he was made to do more times than his wearied soul needed to remember

Although to me you ARE golden,there is no way I would have the disrespect to add 'oldie' to that description..

Ma Rose, not sure I take too kindly to being called 'goldie oldie' but I find Rajjy boy quite endearing (hugs).

I'm on standby for your next gem!
Lotsa love.
Rajjy boy
