Mental Interpretation to My Body
written by Kaysina Melody
My skin laced like ribbon with secrets
embraces the haunted house of a rib cage and a tight rope spine;
a heart that pumps oil rather than blood,
and lungs that have never been permitted to exhale toxins
leaving me to believe I have no room for healing or light.
To my amusement,
light does not supplement or define
a suitable synonym for healing,
just the inability to experience insight
into my own choices.
So as my heart beats loudly,
my rib cage turns into a xylophone of horrors
crying out in haunted pleas for solace.
Trespassers have been warned at my rusted gates
to never be fooled by the sun rays that pass through my transparent
Remember, the light blinds those who wish to see a vivid picture.
As time flies,
my bones begin to deteriorate into coarse sand.
The same sand that negotiates time tables and fate
to those on the edge of their own destiny.
My facade has lowered, not due to my own will,
yet somehow I find peace in its own silver lining.
As the last haunting melody chimes through the wind,
I am reduced to nothing but a tiny seed,
just in time for the next soul to be swept away
in their own parallel universe.
I again would like to congratulate the winners of the contest, “Suppressed!” Thank you for granting me the chance to post your poems here in IdeaStrike. I would like to apologise sincerely for taking a couple of weeks or more before I could post them here. I have been busy and haven’t gotten that chance until now.
Hope you’ll follow the next posts for the winners’ incredible poetry.
I have been trying to sleep but for some reason, I just can’t. So I try to finish commenting on all the remaining entries for this All Poetry contest.
Also, I manage to at last choose the 5 finalist. I would like to congratulate all the winners for this contest!
Thank you for all the wonderful submissions I’ve received. It’s been a difficult decision as I’ve received a lot of great writes. I’ve based my decisions on how much their poems touch me. It may not be the same for everybody but the list above is the official list of winners.
Congratulations to all!!
The contest in AllPoetry.com has ended 9 days ago as the maximum of 40 entries has been completed. I would like to thank everyone who submitted their entries. I have already read them and they are all amazing writes.
However, I have not finished on commenting on all poems. I can’t give everyone a trophy but I would like to congratulate everyone for submitting really fantastic pieces. As a reward for the very meaningful and emotional pieces submitted, I will exert effort to give every entry a nice comment.
Hoping for your patience in waiting for the judging to be completed. I have already selected some pieces which stand out for me emotionally but I am yet to eliminate some from the selection to arrive at the 5 finalists.
Finalists will be posted in this site soon.
