The Valley of Weathered Hearts
I left my self at the shores of frustration.
In search of my true salvation
Driven by the love of elation.
Shadowed by my fear and consternation.
No time left for mental masterbation.
Full throttled vibration.
Understated, unrated, undercooked maturation.
Destiny is my creation.
Done with—someones else’s verbalization.
Enriched by inspiration.
Taking it down with perspiration.
Pillars of spiritualization.
Dripping from the tears of experimentation.
Rhythm-less rhymes of orchestration.
The conductor has left the podium—the hum of yesteryear echoes in the valley of weathered hearts and vagabond dreams,
A small note shows itself,
alone and naked
in ‘self’ immolation.
D. Paris 10/15
