    Hey Haunted
    Im seeing a close up shot of a syringe and the blood pouring back in, creating a bloody morphine sunset. A Haunted sunset. Your words painted it in my minds eye. In fact im having problems getting it to fade . Beautifully done, Haunted.

    Thanks Mary!

    Jerry, I like your line better, "bloody morphine sunset". You are good!

    "Oh, yes, I do."
    "In flames and torment?"
    "Perhaps not quite that. They tell us it may be a permanent sense of loss."
    "That sort of hell wouldn't worry me," Fellowes said.
    "Perhaps you've never lost anything of importance," Scobie said.

    Various images pop in to the mind, all of them moving! Keep it going! Oddly, it made me think of an old friend, dead now, who virtually survived on morphine, but still stayed positive, albeit a touch fiery. She was always known as The Welsh Dragon, because she was so sparky, but what a character!! Thanks.

    Dafy thanks for the encouragement. I'm trying to get back into writing, it's good therapy, just what I need right now.

    Morphine is a double-edged sword. For the gravely ill, if given morphine they might never wake up. So use it wisely, unless one is a dragon, like your friend. My condolences.

    yes Jerry, I confess, I'm multiple personality

    penitentiary



    the long slow deep
    scratch marks
    on the dilapidated wall
    tell a story

    on the ground
    broken fingernails
    lay as material witness

    thereís no set schedule
    for torture

    the anticipation
    is part of the torture

    screams echo
    in the empty cell
    at times itís only
    in the head




    outside
    freedom awaits
    in silence

    there are
    no visible scars
    no feelings
    nothing

    itís a different kind
    of emptiness




    so many times
    I wake up not knowing
    which side of the bars
    Iím on

    "But do you really, seriously, Major Scobie," Dr. Sykes asked, "believe in hell?"
    "Oh, yes, I do."
    "In flames and torment?"
    "Perhaps not quite that. They tell us it may be a permanent sense of loss."

    You my dear Haunted... I have no idea why you call these poems Trashy. They are all exceptionally good. But this one is better. This has now become one of my favourites. I love it. It's how most people feel, but deny. Well done again chickie.

    Mary, thanks for believing in my work! The trashiness will return, I promise.

    Nik, I'd like to think that this reality is just an illusion. I'll always look to you for spiritual pureness.

    "Oh, yes, I do."

    Well if you are on the inside, you instruct not to be rescued. And as the haunted lady, bars are no barrier. particularly like the first three stanza's.

    very observative Jerry... so, eh, what happened to your friend?

    "But do you really, seriously, Major Scobie," Dr. Sykes asked, "believe in hell?"
    "Oh, yes, I do."
    "In flames and torment?"
    "Perhaps not quite that. They tell us it may be a permanent sense of loss."
