The Sins of Boggy Creek

The new preacher is young and naive, but the forces coming against him and his town are as old as time and sly as a serpent...

Applause


 

A certain noise, a vain of laughter - comes

The folly of my wisdom hears their applause

Clapping, clapping - the thunder of a mischievous one

Spiteful people gain your attention through fear, not through love;

Their applause rides unbridled gathering up the storm

Unleashed, gently with twisted wedding band - mindless the while

Hauntingly, the line of un-silvered clouds bring up the rear

And with sullen looks – ghosts of tattered memories appear;

The part of me left in them – now convulsing as undignified waste

Waste, painted as quick-slivered art on heaven’s breast

Painstakingly dissipated by their, “to human is to air”

Remnants scatter, head-stoned, disfigured, no longer in pain;

Mourning shadows, un-imaginary lines – my new dawn scurrying

Scurrying from a decayed relationship - took years of planning

Nightmare – will forever be in desolate pursuit

Applause, applause – triumphed with unspoken phrases;

Now vanquished, wisdom is my peril

My agony, my cries fall on forbidden ears

Their un-thoughtfulness proceeds in a creeping motion

Clapping, clapping . . .

WHAAAAA!!!!OH!!!! Tinka...you two have outdone yourselves in this.
I particularly like the line:
"The part of me left in them...now convulsing as waste."
That is hard-hitting!

Tinks ...

It seems that you have finally passed through the portal and have found peace. This write is rife with enshrouded information. And I for one am eager to know more about these unfolding mysteries.

You and Dennis make fine collaborators Sissy. Brava!
