Who speaks Irish here??

a athair

July 9, 2020



ruptures my fragile soul,
rhythmic peace distorted, 
shallow breathless gasps,
dread filled introspection's awakened, 
wildly roams previewing visions,  
echos repeating, over and over, 
mind whirling, intimate voices,
violent nightmares, triggered painstakingly,
harshly crush the heart-wrenching memories, 
afraid, traumatised, painfully alone, 
floating like a child's sail boat,
drowning in a lost sea of confusion.

acceptation of the final stand
heart pounding, pound after pound
shattering fiercely, glass of a million pieces,
risks unleashed, jeopardised, threatening self,
following heart, ignoring mind,
defying weakness, disregarding soul,
be a saviour, a want to be warrior,
all for this one person,
for the loyalty wouldn't be returned.

    Replying: thanks for saying that :)
    (I edited and republished it because I read through it for like the tenth time and just now realized that the grammatical errors were HEINOUS.)

    hello, i'm sorry but i'll have to disqualify this piece. i don't think you've used science at all in this poem, and i was looking for entries written from only a scientific point-of-view, which, unfortunately, this entry is not. however, you're free to enter something else under the same prompt if you wish! :)
