Not Uniform Around The Edges

written by: Rania M M Watts

@CCInkQuills

 

open up
a little wider
hmm a little more
please

there
-- perfect!

now take your
size 9 shoe
shove it so far

inside your mouth
that the big toe
point keeps
on a path
to collide
with one intimate
wrecking
ball

words
without a filter
can destroy
an innocent
unassumed
victim

but what of the one
who stated such phrases
from a point of honesty?
an inner conflict exist
between what is said
and from the place
it came from

no malice
riddled with sorrow
at the pain caused

-- forgiveness
from a kind heart
elevates anxious
trepidation

but what of the script
that plays itself
over and over
.i. .n. .s. .i. .d. .e.
the non-predators
ridiculous
brain

stop
rewind
play

stop
rewind
play

stop
fast forward
play

stop
rewind
play

stop
stoP
stOP
sTOP

blood hell
STOP already!!!

an endless loop
of innocent
stupidity

My name is Rania M M Watts, I am a stay-at-home mom of 4 whimsical children & wife of one brilliant & athletically inclined husband. (Oh, and, I take Pizza orders over the phone to help make ends meet) I'm looking to finally pursue my dream of being a working poet. I was born in Beirut, Lebanon to Palestinian parents in 1974. With the outbreak of the Lebanese Civil War in 1975, my family emigrated to Canada when I was 2 years of age -- for a peaceful life that didn't involve bombs or explosions.

I dabble in myriad of Art mediums, however am most at home with a: pen, crayon, eyeliner, quill and any type of parchment. Always deemed a freak of nature because of my outlooks and perceptions, I've allowed my imagination to dominate my core since the age of 13 when I told my Grade 8 teacher Mr. Natale, I wanted to flee to Europe with a typewriter and create in fields of long grass... Ever since, I've been a Master Imaginarium & Oubliette Architect, there is NOTHING I can't write about!

Cement Covered Ink Quills is my brain-child blog where I relish focusing on the premise of 'The Verity of Humanity' via various Art Mediums.
