THE JONESING BRAIN (photo) & DARK ANGEL (non-dream free verse poem) by Roswila


who tarred and feathered you
and flung you at my back
as I finally gave up on on you
and walked away,
and what crime did I commit
to suffer you like this,
a dark angel stuck to my back,
shadowing me from head to toe,
bringing tears of frustration
each time I try to shake you
and an agony of loneliness
even as your constant phantom
writhes on my shoulders,
your stygian heat
and crumpled wings
plastered firmly to me,
like a curse for ever having
yearned for you at all

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,
