Re-birth

I have died-
Seven times but one;
Crushed beneath the weight-
Of pain’s unrelenting
Hammer blows.

Straight right. Left hook.
Right uppercut. Left jab.
Right hook. Left uppercut.
Cheek bones splintered-
Lip leaking blood, Teeth-
Bludgeoned until loose.

Head spinning. Time, space
Distance blending-
Into a confused blur.
Then over-hand right –
And sight mercifully fades-
Into blissful blackness.

I have died–
Seven times but one;
But like a rubber ball
Squashed flat against a hard place,
I rebound seven times,
Reborn.

  1. Hey Mr. RustGeek, how are you? Been a while, I see you suddenly vanished into thin air, lol. Not sure you remember me though, but just wanted to say hello to you, and to hear from you. Hope Scotland had been good? Happy belated birthday. Tk cr! 🙂
