The Other Side

by Ashley Tong 3 years ago in surreal poetry
Report Story

A poem by Ashley

In cryptic the outlines gestate

And under the pulses they oscillate

It was a quivering hint to be au fait

With the dire adjure to aspirate

For far too lengthy to confide

Are those penchants to hide

A thought so silently clarified

Yet so audibly mystified

And my ponderous wish to levitate

From what I furtively pontificate

It was always an inkling to break and create

As it trails the merging slopes to date

And there you stand an effigy magnified

Whilst here I am on the other side

Turning my back against your pride

I pray to have my reflection dignified

About the author

Ashley Tong

If I were a painter, linguistics would be my palette, and poetry my favourite brush. If I were an artist, nature would be my muse, and music my companion, and I shall endeavour to depict life as I see it.
