Conflicting Emotions



Conflicting emotions cluster,
stumbling through grey matter, 
as they fight to be top of the pile.
Low thoughts, high thoughts,
where, how and why thoughts.
Grief and elation, hell and damnation,
botched conversations, recovered relations,
lost revelations, failed determination,
dead ideas and un-shed tears,
day-to day chores and clamouring causes
 all perspire
   while they battle for regard,
       colours blurring to mustard and rust,
               verity becoming encrusted
                           in the annals
                                         of my mind.

    1. Safar! I haven’t heard from you for ages. That’s probably my fault, as I’m not keeping up with my reading, and I recently had some issue re. notifications.
      Thank you. That’s a great compliment coming from you. I know you’re not a great fan of poetry.


    1. Thank you, it’s very generous of you to word your comment in such a complimentary way. I think that whether a particular prompt appears easy or hard depends on your state of mind at the time. There’s a lot of conflict in my life right now.
      Hopefully, if the word Ecstatic comes up a few weeks from now, it will seem easy…
