Treasure Island

Dagmara Anna AuraDagimar

(06.08 1983 r. / Gdynia)

a tunnel of fear

question mark on the lips
and you are going into dark tunnel
of the gloomy ill nature

on the way you are passing rows of chairs
of observers what
this way last not lighted

as people for which time
stayed in the place is standing
so as broken watch

long standing chairs already notice
how you are striding between them
you are following your fear

it is assuming the black form
of the shrewd agile leopard
what is a fatal guide

and it is leading you to nowhere
above the steep deep chasm
of the nervous breakdown

and you don't give up
there is always some exit
try at least to change direction

    The poetess Dagmata has penned the futility of what I call my running in circles...the anxiety of defeat of the mind heading in multiple directions, yet stalled as she so eloquently put it 'time stayed in place' the aura of impending doom yet the human condition forges ahead (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet Rupert Brooke

If I should die, think only this of me:
That there's some corner of a foreign field
That is for ever England. There shall be
In that rich earth a richer dust concealed;
