don't fear death

poetry assignment :)

write a poem using these lines:

“Turbulent stasis on a blue ground”
“In every sense of the word I’d roam”
“I saw the best minds of my generation destroyed by madness, starving hysterical naked”
“You were blind to me”
“I sat silently examining the candle’s apologies”


I sat silently examining the candle’s apologies written crookedly on the walls
recalling yesterdays when the wild wind would dance with the red flames
I saw the best minds of my generation destroyed by madness, starving hysterical naked
thoughts and dreams yet unfulfilled have become Turbulent stasis on a blue ground
In every sense of the word I’d roam to follow my own and come to you for peace
yet You were blind to me, and i to you, and we lost our way and fell into the candlelight.
