Oh, yeah ...

Had a poem done yesterday ... not been writing much ... didn't even have my notebook with me ... but time for writing is time for writing, and I wasn't going to let it slide!

                    DOWN DEEPER THAN DECLINE

                    scrambled function
                    erased time
                    too much demands
                    too many intrude
                    the matrix fails
                    all things go grey
                    emptiness swallows
                    the void over-rides

                    substance alters
                    support drops away
                    we have nothing
                    but these shapes of dreams
                    and frames unfunded
                    by dollars or by days
                    all things potential
                    but impending doom

                    new pathways beckon
                    beyond this haze
                    there is no real road
                    that leads from here
                    only visions of the mountains
                    dream routes on the sea
                    nothing tangible and now
                    able to be seen

                    a darkness hovers near
                    an evil presence
                    hid behind the flow
                    of our existence
                    a maleficent force
                    that would destroy
                    all growth, achievement,
                    attaining, worth

                    how to build
                    when in destruction's path?
                    how to climb
                    in avalanches' sway?
                    the deck is stacked
                    against survival
                    the die is cast
                    for our despair
