Author Joanna Maharis: Ejection


Ejection distant thunder

chase away from me

my tears.

Your seizure must place

all secrets under arrest.

Blood ties fail safe plans

to be fed by mongrels.

Survival defiance on brigade,

fire on crystalline waters

be divine by call of the lion.

Shattered heart blistered

up by outraged flames burns

through silk linens.

Causal effect, savage

darkness overrides a lost

soul drowning in convulsions.

Life conquers a progression,

psyche drives across impalement

to a mysterious stranger

on the run from caloric

binges not fueled by

love’s erasure to deplete

wounds, and diminish wits.

Bar the gold shield

across my soul, and

drive out all illusion

rushing out the door.
