Glimpse – Some old pieces – 2008

here are a couple of old pieces, spilling some angry beans of frustration due to all the drama that was taking place in Lebanon 2005-2008:
………………………………………………………………………………
hot white tears,
Burning!

Burning down, sliding, scratching,
A ripping scream silenced, pressure,
Pain, mind shattering need for release.

Unyielding the comfort,
Feeding the anguish,
Feeding the creeping madness,
Rapidly taking over the sanity,

The sound of screeching desperation to hold on to shreds of common sense of reason,
more and more panic, a rising need to regain control of those sudden emotions.

Fluttering cold chills rippling through the body, unexpected,
An empty, devastating silence.

………………………………………………………………………………

Frustration eating away at nerves transforming to anger moving to rage.
Eyesight frozen by restrained hot tears,
a dulling of emotions,
a radiation of neagtivity.
Sighs unyielding comfort
muscles hardened unmoving
a heaviness on the shoulders
a fluttering fire in the chest
energy rocking every muscle.

Cascading anguish drowning everything else,
a sad pain.

………………………………………………………………………………

That which should have been so familiar and natural, could not have been more alien. Confusion, a misplacement of a kind, a strange confusing state. what now?

………………………………………………………………………………

Fear of unfulfilling the promise, made on our behalf. Masses to pay for the faults of few. Justice in an undefined time. Blood, limbs, minds spilled, scattered, shattered. No one to answer the call for all. Minor compensation for later satisfaction. The whole to pay, the whole to bleed, the whole to grieve, hell in the now. Time passing, the pain increasing, the wounds deepening, embedding in the memory of history. A wound infected, manifesting, slowly poisoning, sickening, but not killing. cries of frustration, seeking a way to release the building tension and unbelief at what the eyes can see, the ears can hear, and the body can feel.
