The Pill

"The Pill"

The magic pill

It sits there still

Gleaming on the windowsill

Its brassy case

I see my face

Through liquid scarlet - deadly grace

It doesn't know

The pang and throe

That plunges to the depths below

Only it stares

With stoic airs

Its silent intent unawares

I contemplate

"Is it too late?"

My chest begins to palpitate

My hearts desire

(A burning fire)

That leaves me hanging from this wire

Where freedom calls

Beyond the walls

Mortal strength and effort falls

To depths serene

With ghostly sheen

A visage; a lovely field of green

Beckons to me

Oh can it be?

That now my heart is truly free!

It's lodged there still;

The magic pill,

Splintered 'neath the windowsill.

I enjoyed the poem dear. Perhaps it left me with a bit of wondering about the nature of, and your relationship with the pill. I presume that is intended and if so it worked well.

Hugs,

Charlie

I will be starting "The Magic Pill" myself sometime in January. It's quite an intimidating feeling. What will happen? What if it doesn't work? You wrote a lovely poem describing the delicate balance of anticipation and concern. Thank you for sharing! :)

Lily, I wrote a pretty in depth response to you dissecting the meaning/intent of my poem. However, I suppose something in it wasn't suitable in some way, so it didn't show up. But I do want to reiterate one thing I said in it - it was interesting reading what you gleaned from my words. Thanks for responding.

Joanne, as always, thank you.

Peace.

I'll take the red one every time. Great Poem I enjoyed it thoroughly, even read it aloud to my SO, who pondered its meaning, being it was here at LP, was it E? To me it was!

I am honored! Thank you!

The pill is metaphor. While it was specific for me, it was intended to represent the choice that any of us makes that leads us to our individual places that are our "fields of green".

(Mods, this is the best I can of to sum it up)

      I usually find my clothes at old navy or maurices. I pretty much only wear old navy jeans. Kohl’s is another good place.

      I am one of those who react strongly to perfumes.  Sometimes, it's like getting hit in the face, ans some products can cause my eyes and sinuses to burn.    I always try to use unscented products if I can, and I don't use perfume.  With more and more places going scent-free, I can't justify using it.

      I have a very sensetive nose, can't even enter some perfume sections cuz it just hurts. Would have to evac sometimes from bus or train cuz somebody was extra generous. So normally just don't apply perfume, except for this one lotus oil perfume. Absolutely love it, but it's supposedly really strong, but no matter how little I use my partner can't stand it. Tells me he can smell it from across the room. So now I just use it to calm my nerves. Can't wear perfume otherwise.

      Once I do get to that point I will have it in a ponytail tucked under my hard hat just because my chances of it getting caught on something are very high. I won’t even wear my wedding ring because I have seen what it does to fingers if it gets caught.

      For jeans I buy tall boot cut from Old Navy (I’m 6’ 2”) . They go on sale pretty often and you can get them for under $20. They also have some of their tops in tall sizes. My wardrobe has mostly Old Navy.

      For many years I wore my hair down as far as the top of my hips. At work (sawmill) it had to be in a pony tail and under my hard hat. Got a lot of grief about being a hippie and then with pierced ears they could only whisper behind my back  because by the time I had both ears pieced the company had quite a few women and one openly gay guy and HR was on their ass about sexual harassment suits. So it was policed pretty well.

      Yes, without a doubt, you're a great looking blonde and it goes beautifully with your complexion. 
    • Emily michelle
      I love the look. I really like your makeup I wish I was that good.
    • Emily michelle
      Well to update this my boss came up to me this afternoon and I need to cut my hair because I look “fagish” whatever that means. He said he can deal with it as long as I wear a hat or my hard hat.
    • ShawnaLeigh
      Oh I do not take offense and I read through all of what you had wrote and found it very interesting.  I was just saying I did not follow it at this time as I am an impatient person and frankly I am also a tad overwhelmed in my own life with recent events unfolding extremely fast. I certainly appreciate you doing this as it can be a very helpful process for many of us.   Tori I do not understand this.  I do not feel what I had said falls into a brain dysphoria.  Perhaps it does and I do not realize it.  I'm always open for opinions and positive criticism.
