Mystical Transmissions

by Mark Maxey

Words echo in the space between your ears
Static transmissions filter out the truth
Etheric utterances meant for you
Go unnoticed

Twisting clogging clutter
resonates rhythms that backfire
awaiting a mechanic of sorts
unnoticed pain screams out silently
opportunities exist but desire forbids expression
untrusted unwilling thoughts beat back dreams

night dreams awake you in heat
rushing and reaching for coolant
when you need to feel the warmth
denied expressions block the transmission

driving aimlessly down familiar roads
while repetitious sounds prevent hearing
mystical transmissions meant for healing
their echo deliberately filtered out
mystical transmissions lost in space and time

rusted parts slowly die
that were built to last forever
to carry you further on the path
waiting for their release

sacred ground left as a desert
that offers soothing water
waiting for the receiver
to find the ears of hope

Gorgeous imagery. It's just one beautiful snapshot after another in this thing.

I like the alliteration of "clogging clutter", and even though you wrote "twisting" before them, I heard "clanging" :))
