stun
it was a crossword answer yesterday
the question was
to knock senseless
that would be me
I am
stunned
donít quite know
how to get up
donít quite know
if I want to
donít quite know
anything
except that
I see
birdies, little explosions of colors in my eyes
my legs are shaking
and
I can smell the mat
blood, sweat and dirty feet
and
hear all around people
screaming
get up
get up
you can do it
and
all I want to do is lay here
and
throw up
uncle you win
how many times can I fall
to my knees
before my brain turns to jelly
how many times
can I take a direct punch to the face
before I talk like Ali
I took the upper cut like a man
but
I
am
stunned
knocked senseless
no fight left
TKO
that would be me
someone ring the fucking bell

Josie,
You know your poems are always packed with a strong punch! I really like that, they are real, and express the emotions so many of us feel! Keep ranting, it makes you feel better, and they give strength to others in the same place!

Hugs,
Maria

P.S. Have you ever tried writing Da-Da poetry? I have a friend who writes it all the time, and it is Awesome!
