Tears

Eyes sting
Ears ring
Black ravens sing

TEARS

Spirit ages
Face rages
Devil turns the pages

EMOTIONS

Soul urges
Heart purges
Ghost plays dirges

AGGRESSION

Mind thinks
Psyche blinks
Wise owl winks

REPRESSION

Body falls
Anger stalls
Rancid rat crawls

SOLITUDE

And eyes sting
And ears ring
And black ravens sing . . . again


Note: My fellow-blogger and friend, Tanya Cliff, penned another “vers l’avant,” the type of poetry read above, and inspired me to do the same. Thank you, Tanya! This was an invigorating challenge and fun!
