Deluge me

Deluge (VI) by Mikalojus Ciurlionis

Deluge (VI) by Mikalojus Ciurlionis



Fingernails are cutting
burning pain inside my palm;
acid bubbling; rumble;
maiming mind with loneliness.
deluge me
breathing deep
finding solace seeking solitude
in ways that clouds are forming
raining tears.

  1. this starts quite vivid and with so much pain…
    the last several lines are quite interesting…the seeking
    that solace in solitude in the same way clouds form
    and through rain…

  2. solitude alone has the power of healing from the grasp of loneliness but for that one has to walk on razor’s edge…love the imagery used here to express the journey and the intense feeling that’s been created…

  3. We all find our way of trying to find comfort in our solitude, it seems. And, ha, breathing deep does seem to be a ‘volta’ in this poem. Great example. Smiles.

  4. I am really struck by the tactile descriptions of pain – the physical signifying the emotional hurt so very clearly.

  5. The chasm between loneliness and solitude: so, seemingly, similar on the surface and yet – in the depths of loneliness – there is such an unconquerable disparity. Tears, I think, can bring solace . . . and even, eventually, some level of peace in solitude.
