Sur le Fil – Yann Tiersen  Music from the French Language Film “Amelie”

A familial facial reflection
Unneeded outlandish rejection
Replacing precedent’s expectation
With a necessary deregulation
Turning creator into slave labor
Not given necessary fortification

Craving reliable idolization
Causing dreams of undeniable suffocation
Due to lack of continual unaltered representation
Of adulteration and uplifting sensational glorification
Spirit denied spontaneous cleansing and clarification

Unspecified non-existent qualification
Not mentioned in self-ordination
Just some minor miniature restoration
Portraying similarities to specification
Of a ghostly nightmares petrification

Pitiful the need for constant ramification
Being  receiver of nonexistent gratification
Smoked and mirrored reflections filling imagination
Tired of less than spontaneous regurgitation
Usage of words lacking depth and personification

Ideas are dying thoughts losing representation
Minds laying waste from bubble gum strangulation
Bodies losing life force removal of living sensation
Purposes and focus absent due to brains mortification
Spiritual awakening weakened minus enlightening stimulation

About the Author:

“Never Tell Me I Can’t Do Something.” Words which make me feel challenged and pushed forward until what meets me is accomplished. It is within me to create from thoughts, images and sound. There are five questions: What? When? Where? How? And Why? My compulsion is to figure out answers to them all. I am a writer, poet, artist, blogger who uses her tools to search the unknown, to discover all the possibilities and impossibilities, and to live as full a life as imaginable. Jk the secret keeper

  1. Jennifer, this sounds like plaintive cries in an emotional dessert. It is sad, poignant and powerful. You have grace and the amazing ability to take us into the maze. May you always write. You are a gift!

    Jennifer,

    These words are a pithy commentary on our times:

    “Ideas are dying thoughts losing representation
    Minds laying waste from bubble gum strangulation
    Bodies losing life force removal of living sensation
    Purposes and focus absent due to brains mortification
    Spiritual awakening weakened minus enlightening stimulation”

    Superb piece!

    Larry

    • Thank you Larry for your strong support of my portrayal of the sadness of what is lacking in society. An apathetic response to life. Where is the substance? The Meaning? It is all pushed aside to celebrate Andy Warhol’s doomed concept of everyone’s 15 minutes of fame. The specialness seems to be slipping away. I liked it when there were some people who were truly really really special. They could be emulated. But society wants to tear people to shreds who show any length of quality.

      It is a sad statement what I wrote, especially in the final verse.

      Thank you again Larry for taking the time to read and evaluate my poem. :-) Jennifer
