By Her Implore- Max Meunier

even in this wintry wake

she whispers words untrue


still, i can see

far beyond the walls


where once i knew her


waging wars

within her arms


i could not walk away



to the fragile child


who wept

in shades of fury


these preambles never fade

from light


found in the aftermath


branded by the searing touch

of cruxes


born to bear


no more

do i hear my own voice



through time’s collapse


having been eclipsed

by her implore

    • thank you, oldepunk. i write a lot of silly, arbitrary, and superfluous poems based in emotional and existential futility. but once in a while, i can’t help but write the reality of my sorrow. thank you for being so conscientiously attuned to such expressions. your intuition and wisdom are highly refined, and your heart is as open as the skies beholding wonder. oh, snappies! i just found several epic signs today at the dig site. i found several studebaker rd.’s along with a whole slew of recent additions. there must be some names that would be relevant to SD in one way or another. i kinda want to figure what might be suitable, and send it to the SD headquarters as a sort of mini tribute. SD should have a reliquary of sorts. maybe it’s a bit far-fetched, but i kinda dig such things. i’ll send you my latest list. i guess i have become an antiques dealer of sorts over the past few months. pardon my superfluous and meandering response. i’m just glad i was able to communicate, albeit in this awkward presentation lol. *hides under nearby kitten*

      • you’re welcome Max. Kindred souls speak a similar language, no? The signs are really cool.
        Would love to see the new list! Jasper and Rick would appreciate them I think. An SD reliquary would be kick ass; we should figure out how to start one. Hope you are well buddy. take care of yourself


    • i love this compliment! i can only hope to live up to it. thank you for your kind words and consideration. i must show my appreciation through conscientious participation with everyone. if there’s any reason to try to overcome my severe avoidant issues, it’s the shared love and support fostered by everyone at SD.
