Àrchives øf the Mînd

If one spends too much time running
`round in the labyrinthine archives
of the mind, one finds a Lady Past
who, alas, can never be changed,
rather, relived–empowered—somuch
so that she grabs choking-hold
of Today, blues her face, & robs
you of your pr(essence).

  1. “the labyrinthine archives of the mind”, such delicious phraseology, very poetic indeed.
    I like the fact that you like words so much, and not just their meanings but their structures and anatomy. I’ve noticed it quite a lot in your writing, such as the essence in pr(essence) in this piece or the three i’s in infinity and others. It is the kind of thing that I notice and look for in words also, so it’s nice to see others doing the same.
    Do you like anagrams?
    I am or have been writing on and off a short story about a man who tries to destroy infinity. I would have probably given up a long while back but while trying to think of a name for the man I happened to stumble upon Peter Paul which is an anagram of perpetual… So the damn thing must be written.
    Eternity – Entirety
    Ultraism – Altruism
    My second favourite anagram is
    Intoxicate – Excitation… I would tell you my favourite but I’m excitedly drunk and I can’t remember.
    Anyway, must dash, I’ve got another 20 blogs in which I will leaving long rambling messages of madness.
    Be happy and keep writing,


I value your thoughts. :)
