Full of tiny incisions,
Made from bad decisions
Purging of the truth extolled

Where hope floats like a rock.
With a crushing precision,
In sniper position,
Watching closely like a hawk-

Beaked enthusiasm,
Gouged madness in fleshy bits
Nothing left, but the pits,
Sacred cannibalism

Negativity perched-
In some gutter looking up
With fork, knife, plate, and cup
Every cavity is searched

Something brazen is unearthed,
A fighting spirit kicks
While the eleventh hour ticks,
A survivor- rebirthed.

Eulogy

Get in there! You were never that far lost, trust me. Such vibrancy of spirit is never lost......only found, regardless of the search.

I really like the wording and imagery. Nicely done. :)
And in the end the trampled spirit, refuses to be trodden on any longer, similar to the Pheonix at the end?

The more I read this the more I could not resist the urge to insert this emote --->  photo 5eek_zps94aqawrc.gif

Sacred cannibalism !!!? Every cavity is searched???!!  photo 5eek_zps94aqawrc.gif

Holy Gotham City, Master Bruce!!!  photo 5eek_zps94aqawrc.gif That put some yeeesh images in my ol' brain.

Gouged madness in fleshy bits. Did you just get finished watching some kind of graphic horror movie and then decide to write this?

Seriously there are some wickedly awesome images here. And that Scorpitude!!! I simply love this poem!!! The resolve at the end made me have a happy face!!!! smiley photo cid_36B6C8ADACBB41FA8597AE4A78C7B78.gif

Hi Scorp.

Very strong opening. Reminded me of the Chinese 'death of a thousand cuts'. We homo sapien sapien's do that to ourselves with disturbing frequency.

I like the personification of 'negativity'.

Well done here.

Invierno

i like this poem. i like the formula you used, and used to great effect. the obstacles presented by adherence to structure and theme is so often over-looked, and rarely acknowledged.
also....thirty seconds before reading your poem, i submitted a new(ish) one that also has the word brazen lazing about...
so now you know.

My favorite line is the 4th line "purging of the truth extolled". It makes me think of a person who rids themselves of truthful praise, in order to humble themselves, or perhaps because it feels undeserved. I think that was a very clever and well thought out line. I love how this is clearly a poem about survival, yet has a darker undertone. I found it quite inspirational. Well done.
