Overcome


Red Blurred Lights by Petr Kratochvil
Red Centre by Sharon Apted


Overcome

saturate my control with bold strokes –
unwind me open - tension sword-bladed free–
unleash all skeptical passion with irresistible might -
until I am but one repeated sigh 
falling one unto the ninth degree 
repeated into mindlessness –
melting into the crescent moonlight 
flinging my final often offended reserve 
over the threshold  
into midnight mystic madness

  3. I like the way your italicized words tell the abbreviated version and the negative words emphasise the action in this piece.

  17. If you can become a repeated sigh, you will have entered a realm known to but a few. In fact, you may be the first the explore that realm!
