a somewhere else of me

here is a planet that could be my mind

valleys bottomless, mountains that defy measurement

there is a wrong sky overhead

presently brimmed with one of its multitudinous disagreeable moods

the ground belonging to my feet alters shape

as if I had committed a crime against it

sentencing me to stumble after stumble


from the home of my sad internal sight

I can see how shadows do their endlessly black paintings

the sun will not open any of its windows for me

has a golden attitude of its own

preferring to shine on less troubled others

tows their gratefulnesses toward a hiding place behind horizons

to sleep in self-made combustion.


Peace is quite often denied access, yet when allowed entry

startles the surrounding unpleasantries with many godgifts

at which point in imaginary time

I woefully find myself wearied, weighed down by the unopenable luggage

of wordlessness.

thank's very much everyone ( likers and commenters all )

Don, Adam ( love the new profile picky Mr Action man! ? ) Ghazala, Dev, Lisa, Avishek and Keith, Leon.

Sorry, Don, I should have made my first comment to you much clearer. By ( if acceptable ) I meant if THIS poem was good enough to be accepted by YOU as my thankful ' payback ' to YOU for YOUR dedication ( to me ) poem-yes? hope that tidies my muddled comment up.

And as for me being ' troubled ' no way! I'm as happy as a lark dude so no need to take this or ANY of my poems to heart.

So thank's again guys and just to let you know, as from today I'll be taking a break for very busy personal reasons.

Hope you all stay in the best of both physical and poetical health!

beautifully grim, but in your case Rose, grim enough to be anything but non-fictional surely?

Help me here Rose. I understood the typo 'pom'. But I hope you meant 'portion of a playback of a poem' to Don. If you meant 'payback' how should I take this? Paybacks usually have negative connotations. 'if acceptable'? what do you mean by this?

Your piece suggests you may be having problems...take care

( if acceptable ) a portion of payback from a pom to a Don.
