NO LOOKING BACK (photomorph) & SWEET HELL (non-dream free verse poem) by Roswila


how many times have I walked away from
the hell of this impossible yet sweet yearning
you've seeded in my all too fertile and hot
imagination? too many times now even to
begin to count; but, hey, maybe that would be
a way to distract myself from the impossibility
of you: one could entirely fill a lifetime counting
the stars and my failed escapes from this hell
must equal them in number by now; ah well, I've
never been very good at math, not to mention I
tend to bore rather readily, and so I'll dispense
with counting and go on walking away from
hell each time the heat becomes intolerable,
or the smoke and mirrors of your newest act
become so painfully obvious that I can no longer
explain them away or dress them up; I've been
lucky thus far, I suppose, that each time I've
walked away and then looked longingly back
over my hunched shoulder at the sweet hell
of you, I've not been turned into a pillar of salt

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.
