Addict


Today for Poetics over at dVerse there's a picture prompt based off of images from the blog of an artist named Leovi...I chose this one entitled Your Love Is Like A Mantle Of Bubbles...

Pain

leaves such a

vibrant residue

as it spreads.



It

bleeds out

across a spectrum

of desolation finding

paradise within beads

of despair sparkling

and fizzing with a

carbonation of sadness

that clouds the judgement

of a life fractured by stalagmites

coated in analgesic

prayers.



As

heaven

becomes a

syringe full of healing,

rehab always seems to reside one rainbow over the spill.

  2. Your description of addiction is lucid, poetic and quite brilliant.

    " paradise within beads of despair"

    "coated in analgesic prayers"

    splendid imagery.

    "rehab always seems to reside one rainbow over the spill.

    Someone of your poetic fired up brilliance is beyond the spill beyong the rainbow and belongs to the splendid galaxy for the truly gifted( no need for gilding the lily enhancements:)

  5. This is interesting. I used the same picture, and I also had a 'rainbow' in my poem; but such different subject matter we used!! Smiles. I like 'heaven becomes a syringe full of healing..'

  8. This is just great. First the description of pain and desolation and then the healing with heaven like a syringe (or is the syringe heaven?) nevertheless, fabulous and powerful poetry.

  9. This is such a perfect description of addiction. Seeking heaven in the syringe, the analgesic prayers - your words paint the picture so well.
