Tuesday, January 8, 2019. Daily Brit Wit.
Put (or have) the wind up:
Phrase, British informal
Alarm or frighten (or be alarmed or frightened).
“Words inside my head
creative devices and imageries
I am left alone
echoes bouncing off walls
I am nothing without my poetic words.
A devastating storm
like a wild-eyed toddler
and nothing pretty, shiny, or worthwhile
will be left behind.
Without my words
I have no friends
because everyone left
evaporated into the ether
and any sanity I had left
walked out on me five hundred years later
when subliminal love came wandering by.
I’d put the wind up if I could
but my arms are wired together and
my lips are chapped blueish grey
the ether is coming for me
because the words have vanished
and I can no longer
create my little world I live within
merrily wrecking havoc
and masterminding peace
so here is my last attempt
to reconcile my losses
if you don’t find me in the morning
I never existed in the first place, my dear.”
