“Let us think the unthinkable. Let us do the undoable. Let us prepare to grapple with the ineffable itself. And see if we may not eff it after all.” – Douglas Adams


Eff it all, what’ is thought ineffable;

Think the unthinkable, and so persist,

There’s more than the unimaginable.

You don’t see life, of what it consists —

Creating such possibilities;

Surpassing the “I can’ts,” the “What if’s.”

In childhood’s books, I seek ingenuity,

Rereading print words, traced with strange greatness;

Writing of potential necessity.

Willingly do the undoable, hate —

Not those who won’t risk, but strive — keep shoving;

The envelopes edge torn — so stop waiting.

Discover roads to success, endeavour,

Until you’re aching inside, then, grapple —

Impossibilities aren’t forever;

Don’t let the indescribable baffle,

Nor the smoke of lies curl, expressionless mist;

You’ve heart, so question the laughable.

Be amazed, ineffable, not frightened,

Let not the unknown curse you with harsh plights;

Eff it all, what is thought ineffable,

There’s more than the unimaginable.

Poem: Cascading Etherees –  “Him Narrating Defeat of The Pillow Wall.” #wordhighjuly #amwriting #poetry #siping

http://www.wifflegif.com

——-

Here siping beside you on our comfy, 

Stalwart bed; the pillows stacked so high.

“Why so many pillows? Explain what,

You need them all for because–

Babe, you don’t touch me and I, 

Miss you and your bright, 

Smile; as we delight, 

In us both, 

Loving, 

Well.”

—–

“But, 

Now you, 

Build a pile, 

A pillow fort.

Are bed is divided, 

We can’t even see each —

Other; and it feels as if, 

We’re children playing games you  —

And I; forts being a fun thing in my past, 

Yet with you, there’s no fun only, silence.”

——-

“I tried breaking down your wall once you woke, 

I said, ‘”I’ve had enough,”‘pillows flew, 

Throwing them on our bedroom floor, 

I brought you so close to me, 

Told you,’ “I missed you,

Please, let’s not fight you’re, 

right. I’ll spend more, 

Time with you, 

From now, 

On.”‘

—-

“You, 

Gazed, 

At me in, 

Shock, smiling a —

Bit sleepily, 

Saying, ‘”My dream has come, 

True; but I need us to always, 

Be a priority in our —

Life, together;”‘and I smiled with hope, 

Held you, whispering:”Baby, me too.”‘

——-

Plead not;

My wings need catch, 

The wind.

——

Aloft, 

Flying, soaring, 

Need space.

——

Paths flown, 

Travelled down,

Why them? 

——

Don’t know;

Earnest you plead,

Knowing —

——-

I fly, 

Where I fly and

Find my —

——

Respite.

With wings grazing, 

Treetops.

——–

Know for, 

Myself, wretched, 

Defeat.

——

Perhaps, 

Delight, sunsets, 

Freedom.

——-

How do,

I inform you, 

I need —

——-

To fly, 

Test wings expanse.

Your words —

——-

Make me, 

Want it all the —

More and —

——-

How do, 

I tell you this —

Is life?

——-

We get,

Hurt and tattered.

Banged up.

——-

You taught, 

Me well, so trust, 

I know. 

——–

How far,

I leap before, 

I soar.

——-

And if, 

I fall, call it,

Learning.

——–

One has, 

To learn to know, 

Which path —

——–

To take, 

Dangerous or, 

Roads safe.

——–

Plead no —

More; I’ve miles to —

Explore.

———
I’ll see, 

You soon, but now,

I fly.

——–

Sparrow, 

With featherd wings, 

Sky bound.

Midnight, Starlight, Dreams.


I want to live the dream.
I need to go somewhere.
Been stuck in inaction for probably way to long.
Baby, I just want to live life, starlight, do more than survive.
I can’t do this too much, no sleep thing for too long.
I’m a jailbird songbird who needs to be free.
And the lessons I’ve learned, I’ll never be free.

You’ve got that red heat glowing look in your eyes.
I don’t want to be trapped their layered all up in pain.
Because this beautiful life it’s just not the same.
Baby, I need to live my dreams.
Have God answer my prayer.
So give me grace light, starlight and all the hope that remains.
Free me, release me, unbound me from chains.
Because I’m a restless on bedrest girl with no name.
And if it’s going to be forever;
We’re taking this way to far.
Got to build a life, have strength and might or, I’m just meek and ashamed.
Understand now, the words beneath the pain.

So, it’s going to be forever.
But baby, that could change.
Will you always just leave me.
And go do what you please.
You ignore my pleas, and I plead.
And it went up in flames, burn this starburst, starcrisp, down to a cinder.
So, it’s going to be forever.
But I need to live my dreams.
But I need to accomplish.
Do you understand the pain, rain down, restless sleepless night with no name.
I need recognition — a nameless dream with something not ashamed.
I’ll take my red lip, lipstick smash it all into glass because I can’t do much this way.
So heal me I pray.
Heal me I’m wounded and unkind.
Heal us, I don’t know how far the medicine goes.
But it’s midnight and I’m up in flames, give me bright lights, Suns calling my name.
And baby, all day we will live our dreams, and hours will pass, the days will go on, and life won’t be such a fight.
Midnight, I’ll live my dreams in the starlight.
Nameless of names.
