poetry by j matthew waters


Before opening up
believe in going back
where you understand most clearly
reasons for soliciting past-time travels

Tarnished pendulum swings
somewhat rhythmically
testing your peripheral and recessive vision
its motion repetitively pleasant
and incessantly inviting

Even insomnia can’t match the power
of precocious preoccupation
the subconscious mind questioning
suggestions from the beholder

During the reverie certain epiphanies
reveal themselves
standing alone and with merit
their undying truths
in need of further discovery

  1. This gets deeper the more you read it.

  2. Shawna on said:

    I think it’s secretly “HIPnosis,” and it’s about being mesmerized by Shakira’s belly dancing. 🙂

    Love that video, “Hips Don’t Lie.”

  3. People enter trance many times a day, so you may “formally” believe you may not know much about hypnosis, yet you already do.
