Poetics: Beginning at the End

This poem is for DVerse Poetics and is also partially inspired by FOWC: Issue. The line I used as inspiration is below. Also linking with One-Liner Wednesday / JusJoJan for today.

“Airless and unloved, in the dank basement of the mind” L. Igloria ~ A Reparation

Issues pushed away, do not dissipate
What is buried is buried alive

What is hidden away is not hidden
Completely, but continues to cause chaos

And sadness, depression, terror and loss.
To lock oneself away locks only

The path to a life that’s better, less intensity
Yet also much less laughter

A life that is unrooted and diluted —
The unconscious mind is not deluded

And ignorance cannot be bliss here,
For ignored past hurts do not disappear.
