Poetry and Photography: Take #1

No More., originally uploaded by kamikaze productions.

I’ve have decided to start writing again, poetry, prose, whatever moves me when I finish processing a shot. I used to write a lot more, and it only seems write not to abandon the craft…especially when the arts are incredibly interwined and touch the human emotion centers in many of the same ways. Here is my second poem but first blog posting to start 2009:

“No More”

There is a calm before the storm, but a calm follows swiftly in its wake,
The lull of destruction swirls with the unknown reality of limbo…
Will it end, will I move on, what do I do,
Live.

A tongue-tied heart and a teeming kettle of a brain,
an inability to silence the hurt, nor to communicate the joy…
yes, joy — jealousy brought about this pain,
never again and no more — I will not feel like this.

The world may ignore, but I weeped for you,
to have witnessed, was to have felt,
to have listened, was to have fallen with,
and to have recovered was to love…one day they will weep too.
