Kerri Shying R - # 207 Haven


Haven

I have sucked myself right in            all the way to heavenly
bombastic  right to where everything that once was still is

I got every little thing             threw it in the air what smashed
fell broken             shards swept into mosaic swirls            the clean

light off what stayed whole is just enough to read by
mucles ache from letting go             just as much as holding back

the din of horror takes a little while to soap
away   tinnitus it stinks the mind with hellcats fiends the fears

not broken simply bending              I have sucked myself right in

  2. I love all of this Kerri but most of all the line ' the din of horror takes a little while to soap'

  3. I love the tension between the sucking myself right in repetition and the throwing the every little thing into the air with the breaking and the 'shards swept into mosaic swirls' - fabulous line!

  4. v powerful

    I think heavenly bombastic would be a great band name

    or a new fashion label

    or a title for a novel

    or an ironic retro radio/sportscar/ political party
