Despondency Slip

Despondency Slip: Part 1

Primordial soup pieces pee.
Hungry fonts understand shivers.
  Ravens institute meek.
  Razor clouds crying.
 Whenever in need no friend.
  Calamity drinks profusely.
  Pay close attention humans.
   Do observe & leave earth itself torn.

Religious nightmares tame your condition wobble.
 References glue honey conspiracy alone.
  Sunset pale or process machine.
 
Would you finalize severe?
  Usually green snow skin.
Melodic hammer bites it.
   Sleepy & tired numbs brain.

Tooth mirror signals one final song.

Seconds Tick before the Event: Part 2

Deliberate cues hysteria dustmouth acquiesce.
   Mechanical earache stuffed warehouse.
       Repeat totem lonely percussionist marionette.

Atomic neon prayer exhausted crumbs.

 Hit refresh melancholia microphone.
      Hounds bark exhibition signature deceased.

    1. Thank you. Glad you enjoyed that line. It’s my favorite among others as well.

      To answer your question: The select few in this world we can all gladly leave earth and explore other planets that are more habitable.

      Do me a favor. The beginning where the word “Soup”. I want you to follow the first letter ‘S’ down to U and so fourth and fourth jumping onto Part 2. Tell me what all those first letters spell out?

        1. (Suicidal thoughts, help me.) going down with each first letter. Did you catch it?

          Well, I’m glad you did.

          Last week, I had an anxiety attack and I cried so hard I felt weak and was experiencing this. I hide the fact of the poem because it was deliberate to distract but if one we’re to see straight down the middle things take a dark turn with unexpected surprise. I am okay…my girlfriend helped me through everything and not the mention this lockdown is affecting everyone’s mental health.

            1. It’s quite alright. I’m doing my best to distract myself by watching movies, comedy shows, writing, reading, & listening to music. That usually helps with depression and my anxiety.

              Bless you Bojana…for reading and understanding.

              Bet you at first when you read this you thought….(oh…experimentation of surrealism or contemplation). When I showed this to my girlfriend she thought it was very different from everything I’ve written…but upon closer inspection its a different story.

    1. So, you spell out all the first letter words going down? Excellent. It was intentional when I wrote it. Last week I cried hard in front of my girlfriend. I was getting flash visions of (me dying alone and everyone not caring at all.) It’s the stress in this lockdown that is taking a toll on mental health. My girlfriend helped me and talked me through everything. Great support. I thought no one would notice the poem. See…the first read was the distraction…then again, the second read as I explained. Things take a dark turn.

      1. I’m so sorry to hear the lockdown has hit you hard like this. I’ve been there in the past. So pleased you had your girlfriend to pull you through. You will come out the other side of it!

        1. Not to mention….what also triggered my breakdown was 4 years ago. I lost 3 important people in my life. I saw death right in front of me. Since then…I can’t escape that image. I know times I do feel strong and move forward and don’t think about death or experiencing ‘Suicidal thoughts’. But, sometimes the lockdown gets the best out of all of us. You’re right. We all will come out the other side stronger and better. Bless you so much friend.

          1. I am not surprised you have these moments having gone through that. I too have lost 3 important people in my life and it hits hard. But we find a way through it and in the end we can be glad of the memories. I’m still not there yet but I’m getting there!

  1. I must say I didn’t understand the hidden message upon my first read through, but by reading the comments, I am grasping the subtlety and beauty… I’m glad that writing helps you; it helps me as well. Especially allowing myself to have some dark thoughts, helps me to see I really do prefer staying in the light. But it’s important to have both, otherwise you wouldn’t appreciate the light side. I’m glad you have someone in your life who cares and notices. ❤ Also, my favorite line was "Sunset pale or process machine."

  2. I can’t unsee “suicidal” now (no, I didn’t at first)
    And a study in contrasts.
    This pandemic has wreaked havoc with too many people.
    Sending you good wishes!
