I am sleeping
With the door open
In the sea
The indescribable.
A beauty
Much wilder
Even than the words of then.
A span
To the island of eyeless poets

And I see
The poems
The ones of a tomb
Written in my mind
By the hands
Of the suicide

    Shall I Continue

    To continue as I am will surely add
    to the column inches in the Belfast Telegraph

    To change what I am would perhaps finish me
    I cannot go back and there is nothing ahead of me

    limbo has been removed

    I can destroy what I am on my own terms
    or be destroyed a little at a time

    I can rage in the hope that the dog below
    will be the last echo in the streets

    I think I should take myself for a walk

    I say this poem is deceptive to the mind when read. It is very good yet very bad. Illusive.

    Sorry to dampen the love fest for this poem but it was more like the ravings of a deluded mind. No rhythm or timing just a bunch of random thoughts, not just free form, just no form. Discipline is the first rule of poetry. The placement of words can be random if they make sense this doesn't, this is just bad, if I dare use the word in this context, poetry! ! !
    May be use a little thought when you pen the next one how it got to be a poem of the day I'll never know. yours Mr Blunt
