Life after the storm

Twisted wwod.jpg

Unnaturally motivated currents of air

force life out of shape

 

Where they have inflicted their sadistic adventures of unknown proportion

 

Left in their wake –

frenzied, distorted images

flowing like cooled lava along the eerie carriageway

of destruction

 

Contorted objects that once stood erect

now strange

convoluted beautiful artworks

sharing intimate embraces

Memories of a friend never forgotten

Mural painted on hospice wall
cuddles

 

Once again

I feel your presence

a vibrant personality

 

creating another character

impersonating the lead

from a best selling novel

 

masquerading with symbols and lettered monogram

treading the boards

in flamboyant costume dress

reproducing a travesty

 

a grotesque representation of another life

a perversion exaggerated

for the created audience

the ending

 

a farewell

always returning

with no regrets

just dissatisfaction

and self-accusation

at being drawn into role playing

apprehensive

when questioned

 

keeping secrets hidden

between clouds

in nonfictional memories
