“The Argonauts that try their hand at me”: A Poem (2021)

I keep the radio blaring to staple the voices that whisper through my head; although they remind me that I am not dead — I remain stilled by the depths that churn, the sea that lurches, the Argonauts that try their hand at me. The medication is setting me free — but this is still… Continue reading “The Argonauts that try their hand at me”: A Poem (2021)

Bipolar/Borderline Update: 24.07.21

This is a time to reflect.

So folks, I graduated my… Continue reading Bipolar/Borderline Update: 24.07.21

“Only Old Light”: A Poem (2021)

Secrets build up, like bulbs stitched across the night-sky. Each flashing with memories, both low and high. But like ancient stars, they die — and in the end, they are only old light. Reflecting back at me, I touch each bulb — blinking and tongue-tied, another chasm dulled. Another story reaching its plight,another twilight to… Continue reading “Only Old Light”: A Poem (2021)

“Mercury’s Tide”: A Poem (2021)

The time I take to ease this transition by the eclipse of one earthly moon; to the fullness of another. I cannot help but smother Mercury’s tide, within which I write and feel the night creeping in on this accidental triangle. Love is not love where observation dies,but rather the cry of a nightingalefrom the… Continue reading “Mercury’s Tide”: A Poem (2021)

Bipolar/Borderline: An Update (June 2021)

I am beginning to suffer intense psychological setbacks. Namely paranoia and obsessive-compulsive thoughts. I have decided to use this weekend to step back from social-media in order to unclutter my brain. Perhaps get some more reading done. I will be available to those closest to me, but apart from that I need to desperately create… Continue reading Bipolar/Borderline: An Update (June 2021)

“Autism”: A Poem (2021)

“Sea-Sickness”: A Poem (2021)

I have swam through stormy-seas;pulled by a ring onto a near-capsized boat.This could be an allegory about how I have kept myself afloat over so very many years, but the story is true —I once almost drowned within the peril of the ocean: Poseidon’s currents dragging me down. Here I live, and breathe, and thank… Continue reading “Sea-Sickness”: A Poem (2021)

“Orphic”: A Poem (2021)

The mystic’s magic; orphic in her orb. Hecate dances — weaving an oracular tune. Her witchcraft designs aloom; rapid and erratic it definesa millennia of practitioners too. Hecate, Kirke, Pasiphaë: all heralded for their art of mystery. They created history within the minds of men. A desire to create, and to createagain. Emrys R.
