Basic Black



I f I could see the color of my thoughts I know they would be primary,
Basic black
the color of heaviness
of a spirit covered in weight and slow moving like a turtle with a brick on its back
and I don’t know how to jettison this baggage
this tar I drag through is pulling me down and I am panting
exhausted from the struggle
One hand still stretches up
one hand still hopes
and I think I can feel the light reaching it
but its not enough to ignite
not enough to illuminate
and now the shadows have taken over the places that stood empty for so long
I find it peculiar
 and surprising 
just how heavy they are…
I accept the heaviness
and with my neck bowed like a penitent monk
drape myself in basic black

About chimerapoet

I write. I write a lot. A. LOT. There are times I am half blind with a sentence ricocheting off the walls of my stupid, cant be shut off to save my life, brain. I am miserable until I get it down on paper. Punch it up a bit. Usually cross out half of it. And then breathe. Relax. Only to do it all again..... But I just thought that was me. How I am. Not a writer....noooo...not me. Writers are.....writing people. People Who Write. REALLY write. Write things that matter. All grown up very important things. I am just a scribbler of sorts. And I was/am content with that....if it's true, well then....a scribbler am I. Until the thought wormed its way in to my brain (the furtive sneaky bitch) that maybe...just maybe...that is writing. My style. My strange way. But....still writing. So here I am at the dance. Not sure I know any of the moves and the music is entirely mine. But.....only one way to find out. Would you care to join me?
