surreal poetry

Surrealist poetry embodies the essence of poetry itself, drawing upon shocking imagery and lyrical incongruities to comment on the inner-workings of the mind.

Puerile Boats
The ending of summer was never clear; Rotten grass, bright horizon, and reliving memories; Stretching my arms towards the angelic sky, Craving a sort of redemption from the confusion, There was so muc...

Tantibus
Tantibus I’m being bothered by a dream That takes me to the edge of madness; It happens when I’m waking up, ‘Cause I’m waking up within the dream. If I lay down to sleep at night, I never know when it...

It's the Buzz
The fly on the wall has been there for days. He casts a big shadow in the sun rays. Why hasn’t he moved? He kind of reminds me of myself, sitting there under my shelf. Why is he like me? The fly has b...

On Such a Winter
Tea sips tremble widely to the stomach I taste lemon, I taste scarlet Arizona has a place for us I was told the future is there Inside small windows and a flat roof 500 sq feet of cat hair We will dra...

From the Tundra...
From the Tundra, comes forth the Phraust. Pernicious and tenaciously clinging to the notion the ocean knows notions of potions for peace. This isn't the vision revision decision for incisions in rotat...

When It Rains
When it rains And the forces that guide us The surreal figures Who pressed Their unrealistic images To our fragile psyches Break free In scattering chaos When the Omnipresent Bears down on the horizon...

On the River
I was never aware I was never there I was on top of the river Looking at the water and understanding its elements I was not ready for the jump Neither for the height I was not ready to let go Neither ...

Life in Acceleration
95 miles per hour on country roads. Bass so loud your body shakes. The feeling of infinity. I had never imagined myself as a child to become this way. Back when rollercoasters went too high, gunshots ...

Red Ink & Mended Hearts
The stars aligned on that day. Watching the memories float in solidarity. Wishing past endeavors into validity. There are parts of me you've yet to see. Unraveled is this passion. Disillusioned is thi...
The Alphabet I Know
A. A name. I keep him in a pocket of my heart where he can stay warm, but he can’t hurt me. I’ll keep him there until goodbyes become goodnights. He’s special to me and I don’t know why. B. Bombs. Cit...

Desolate
Stay close, for we don't know what is Near, How do we know we're welcome if we don't know what is Here? A willing testament kept away from this letter Home, We made it worse when we went looking for a...

Rubble
Did I go through it? Or did I fall through It? I'm obviously the only oblivious one since You all knew it? "My heads spinning," as I said grinning, To your advantage you led me to believe that I was a...

A Blue Soul
I am everything you think I am, but not what you thought I was. I am a sight for you to see, yet something you've never seen. I am everything you feel, but there's something you've never felt. I creat...

Ramble
Trident's tease, A threesome of threes, Thorough trees, And nothing will bend knees. Nothing will sting bees; The birds, Then come the babies. A gift to manifest, To mold life inside yourself. All the...
Reveal
One spec of the dust on my neck Top notch, age perfected wreck Is worth more than a shot of the rot you can spot Slyly sitting highly up here Peering though glass, crystal clear Still shelves below the sweetest mellow and so To reveal how you feel, To know somehow what is real... Drink down your spirit sweet and face yourself complete. Reveal your spirits shine. Reveal proof divine. So, just a shot of your spirit.. Pour neat and let me near it.
The Truth
The truth will never die but a lie will find it's demise no matter when life ends it will hide among the wise evilution sheds it's skin and slithers up your thighs into that warm place of sin and wait...

Heaven's Torn Asunder
A burial for many, Daemons and Angels alike. The Revolution is nigh, rebel angels take up arms. Uncover the truth and break the chain of silence. In shadows turmoil ensues despair. Many have been bran...
