Carnival of Beauty

Others will seek consolation for pain,
haunting the wishbone moment,
numb to sense.

I turn into my own desolate soul, hearing myself
break apart-
at the mental seams.

The repeated decrescendo
blasting against my ears-
screams echo and echo, echo, echo, echo,
until daylight broke.

Bless me, bless me, bless these wrists.
Mama, I think I am coming home.

Can we do another carnival?

I think I missed it.

I have started to notice how nice it is to have concourse with other poets. I start to love comments. I am getting more interested in poetry! It cheers me up. Even if it's sad poetry! I hope we can do some more things before my Internet connection dies.

Amazing poem. This line in particular: 'screams echo and echo, echo, echo, echo' wow. The repetition of 'echo' really DOES make it echo -- the jump from 'echo AND echo' to just the listing of the words really enacts this feeling of crescendo - wonderful rhythm.
