I grow, I grow

by Rook

Age Group: Adult

"I was angry with my friend:
I told my wrath, my wrath did end.
I was angry with my foe;
I told it not, my wrath did grow."

~William Blake, Poison Tree

each second of
each minute of
each hour of
each day of
each week of
each month of
each year – seasons

malign, benign, each
with their own alignments, correlations, patterns and
deceptions and truths to which I subscribe
my Thoughts, faith and body
to question, to plan and to rule this world of mine

Reality as I know it fades into each new
assumption I breed within my mind,
utopias far and away
from what I’ve known could be bought,
yet taught I stand, knowledge raw, muscle unwrought

I Feel myself mentally flay my insides, chest concave and
open, a gash, in my side
beats the metaphorical wings of fury, a
fury awake, battering its walls, my rib cage
and the pump which spurts blood to and fro inside, my veins
they glow in my dreaming eyes, quickened with passion
and happy smiles, glaring toothy grins, gleaming
silver, bitter sooth indeed
has a scaly skin coat and fangs
