White Noise




White Noise





with the oppression of summer and winter's bitterness juxtaposed;

you desire an escape

once finding what you thought you wanted

now you long for something more

ever present the drone plays pretense,

lulling you into a relentless spiral of lost emotion

it is a presumed safe place, 

feeds you faux nourishment, 

comforts you with all things vacant

coddles you into the bliss of apathetic harmony




only opium soothes your soul

and the persistent hum of your requiem plays on

so many people out there find their soul comforted in ways that are not always the best but it does not change the fact that their souls to begin with were in need of real soul healing. wonderfully heartbreaking and beautiful . Always Maggie.

Hello Cindy,

This is one powerful rapport to a loved one which clearly is fighting against a serious form of addiction...  A very intense work!

Peter,

Wonderfully expressed in its melancholia nd despair... so beautiful in its sadness and shrouded in the expose of the vacuum that dependence creates and fills with the many kinds of nothingness that can come to fill our lives.  A beautiful mind you have -- and a captivating heart to go with it.  Nicely penned.  Tristan

Wow Cindy, a very deep, foreboding poem here! Harrowing it is when one has to conquer their own demons, sadly some never do. This was excellent!  Hugs,   Henry

Not sure if this is about the drug or a relationship that is dying...but either way, it is a powerful write. Addictions, whether to chemicals and other things, or to a person, can sometimes become the downfall to even the strongest of people.

Well written, Cindy...

Hugs...Glata

A complex write that really makes the reader ponder, strong imagery.    
Comment By: Freeisobelle on June 27, 2010 06:23:15 PM Report
Soothing language defies the sadness of this piece, almost like opium itself as the reader sudenly realises what is is about. Lovely language used here, much enjoyed though there is such sadness beneath the surface, Issy x

"it is a presumed safe place, 


feeds you faux nourishment, 


comforts you with all things vacant


coddles you into the bliss of apathetic harmony".....wow

you've developed a place that's more a hologram - a void of reality that doesn't exist.  it's so good to see the words flowing from your talented pen - no one is better than thee, ms cindy loo hoooooooo

This sounds like a very bad place for someone to be Cindy. The poetry of your description contrasted with the reality of addiction make this a very poignant work.
