Down but Not Out

Down but Not Out short poem

Caught in boundless spirals
with imminent full of doubt

Must accept unkind reality
of being down but not out

All dreams in past nurtured
now appear so far removed

Resolute earlier perspectives
for now stand disapproved

Transient phase of ambiguity
will eventually get to abate

Where most of expectations
with conveyances correlate

It’s hard but not astonishing
was known since all along

For trudge to be demanding,
tad muddled and overly long

Perseverance with patience
with dogged kind of resolve

Plain means to an apt end
where puzzles on own solve

Time would stand a witness
vindicating current stance

The very logic of this ordeal
in challenging circumstance

Freaking Out short poem

Before the spill there was soaring. And then anti-g. I readied myself for the ultimate fall. This was the poetry of submission sharing the pain of disillusionment. Who was pretending of liberation in a see-through heart? This was the time
