Exploring possibilities

the music was blaring
it made him deaf
thisthingthatthingthisthingthatthing
over and over
and over

movement, motion, kinetic
potential, position, promise
sacrifice, sanctity, salvation
over and over
and over
thisthingthatthingthisthingthatthing

the hurdles in the prose
were making it difficult
but he was not going to
stop this rush that was
more than a suburban train
thisthingthatthingthisthingthatthing

move
relax hold
scream

thisthingthatthingthisthingthatthing

understanding this ain’t
going to be easy as i
thought it would be
considering the fact that
i don’t know this at all

P:S Thanks so much for the inspiration Ranj. And I give full credit to you and you only for the italics idea.

Firstly, sorry, doesnt change things, but sorry, I can't seem to keep away from this place.
Secondly, this poem was too much a reflection of the constant state of my mind to refrain from commenting.
Thirdly, I wanted to casually observe that you've improved so very much as a writer and a self express-er.
Sorry again.

Poetry can never die. In fact it has the power to bring back the dead. Thanks for the comment and welcome to my blog!
