“ Not A Cicada ” ~ this tinnitus ~


There is a buzz

Said be tinnitus,

A ringing sound

Ne’er holds leave,

Tho has no cause

Save but it does

Till seems a hiss,

Like a cicada’s

Endless kiss,

A grating bound

To drive one mad,

As could be found

Echoes from hell,

This buzz made feel

As would a bell

Of endless peal,

Wants  buried be


And thus so well,

Rather than decapitate

As the alternate stead,

To stop tormenting

My wretched head!

  1. I am really impressed with your writing skills and also with the layout on your blog. Is this a paid theme or did you customize it yourself? Either way keep up the nice quality writing, it’s rare to see a nice blog like this one today

    • Thank you for your accolades, I indeed enjoy knowing that my poetry writing and presentation of it brings you pleasure enough to take the time to comment. Know that I’ve no intention of giving up writing in this fashion, no more so than I should give up breathing. In addition, your encouraging words are an important added incentive to keep doing so. As to the layout of this blog, it was created with and by my life partner’s talents, with some nit-picking interference from me. I thank you for caring. JJF

    • Oui il s’agit… Pour raconter de cette façon, une d’histoire du genre, il faut connaître sa torture, dirais-je plutôt intime que virtuel.

      In the language of my poem, a story told in like manner needs know its torture in a rather intimate fashion, as opposed to virtual.

      Jean-Jacques Fournier
