Spectrum

distort my shadow with play of prism

elongate and fenestrate the light in godly prison

subjugate such spectrum with uncanny precision

.

i watch as you deftly twist the beam

with sleight of hand, perverse

and palm unseen

when fingertips are pungent,

this air is kerosene

.

you want me fire

intensify

to heated point,

but I am rainbow

lavish

set to page anoint

  1. Hi Diana! I really enjoy the sound of your poems. the sounds flirt and flit around like a butterfly, but an uncanny butterfly…

    The imagery here is so vivid, so intense! Especially loved the finale, where the dark gives way to the light…of the rainbow, of you 🌈

  3. I loved how you used your words to represent the protest against the distortion of your personality and real self but no energy is strong enough to dim the light of the rainbow soul that you carry within.
    Such a profound thought.
