Akimbo-OldePunk/RamJet Poetry

RamJet Poetry

akimbo

In part, impart

we departed toward

unknown parts

unbeknownst to most

disillusioned, disenchanted

disappointed with the loneliness

we want more

the love we lost

somewhere along the way

the lost we loved

nowhere to be found

today

it is soothing to believe

it is out there

19 drops off the ledge

and I still haven’t

fallen far enough

soul akimbo and awkward

with an alabaster sheen

and guts in between

a misbegotten toy

my love is longing

I long for love

like yours

to feel joy

I could be your real boy

I would sing and

I would dance

I would do anything

for another chance

I am disappointed with

my loneliness and akimbo

a broken stance

the love we lost

the lost we loved

twixt us two

for me and you

I do, do I

soul akimbo and shaking

close to breaking

love you

soul akimbo and awkward

misbegotten

Help me quit my job…-Georgia Park/Private Bad Thoughts

Sudden Denouement is proud to announce that Georgia Park’s first book of poetry is available for purchase.

I am a poet! I am. I am. I am a poet, I reaffirmed, ashamed.

And buy my book! 

GP_Cover_full

This poetry collection has a beginning, middle and an end. It covers two months’ worth of misadventures in the life of an embittered and slightly arrogant young woman who decides to quit her job to become a poet out of spite after being called a few choice names. Sometimes you will like her, sometimes you may not. Sometimes you may laugh or cry or want your money back. But life’s not very fair that way, now is it?

This is a coming of age story, and that age is almost thirty

In All That I Am – Nicole Lyons-Nicole Lyons/The Lithium Chronicles

Nicole Lyons

In All That I Am

If I could draw a blade across my wrist

to show you that my veins clog

with the sludge of ugliness, you would

never again ask me,

“Why are you so tired?”

If I could crack open my skull

to free my mind, you would

see that it is not splintered

by madness but rather patched

together with clarity, you would

never again ask me

to swallow poison.

If I could rip this body open

to show you the raw red wounds

that have been lashed onto my soul

by every inhumane atrocity

this world has endured, you would

never again ask me,

“Why are you so sad?”

Instead, your accusing eyes demand

simple words to simpler questions that

the simplest minds can process.

And in all that I am,

simple I am not.
