fly away

perched on the precipice 
of uncut emotions
the delicate yearning never stops

the petals may bloom
rivulets may fall into the river
but the blues will not leave me alone

such a hopeless case
however much I might do
the Satan of bad words follow me always

that tiny bit of positive energy
is the umbrella that keeps me safe
from the sharpness of your clownish tongue

"why should I accept the negative?
why should you even offer it?"

This one I know only two well, having lived with it for way too long. Really like the image and easily relate to it. Going home was like walking into the open maw of that negativity. Eventually turned away and never regretted doing so. There is so much life in your words,

Oh I would need that tiny bit of positive of positive energy to overcome the blessing of a clownish grin.

Why do people offer the negative indeed? And there is nothing to say we must be swallowed by it.

Yes, let those tiny bits of energy be the saviour. I loved those jolts of interrogation- WHY? If we can just figure out this ultimate question....Brilliantly put!
