BARRICADED (photo) & SLEEPING BEAUTY'S COMPLAINT (non-dream free verse poem) by Roswila


dammit! why won't you just
let me go back to sleep and stay there
hell, I don't ever even have
the pleasure of your kiss to wake me
you simply burn in the background
raising the ambient temperature
'til I open my eyes
wide with astonishment
that here you are again
and then you rush away
deserting me in an agony of heat
like some cat in a back alley
I'd much rather another 100 years
of denial as deep as sleep to this
flaring up of your painfully
arousing image in moment
after waking moment

PLEASE NOTE: in most browsers you can click on the above image for a larger version. Also, the photo accompanying a post is not necessarily meant to illustrate it, but to reflect some small, even slant aspect of the verse, similar to Japanese haiga (illustrated haiku).

There are many other sorts of posts on this blog. I indicate which are about or influenced by dreams. Some non dream focused posts are book reviews, "regular" poems (some by other writers), scifaiku, writing exercises, Tarot haiku, photos, haiga, and so on. However, most of those are in much older posts. There's a listing by month going back to early 2006, at the end of the sidebar.

until next time, keep dreaming,

OK, I think your comment was meant for the following day's Halloween post (the quote you make is from that post of old scifaiku). And me, too, that image is my favorite in that batch. I do hope leaving comments gets easier as you learn's endlessly weird ways. Thanks for coming back and commenting in spite of the difficulties involved.
