Ugly Ego, reared inside, bares its teeth,
Recognized, slipping slyly past blind eyes.
Beautiful Id, girths its smile, slow-released,
Perceived-wise, skipping softly…

Fetid Ego, trapped inside, fangs its teeth,
Petrified, slipping slowly past old eyes.
Natural Id, earths its smile, time-released,
Vision-wise, slipping softly…

Dying Ego, wails inside, blunts its teeth,
Agonized, skipping swiftly past new eyes.
Cosmical Id, births its smile, death-released,
Freedom-wise, weeping softly…

I had fogotten how deep and sensible you can be, Poet Friend.
This is remarkable in composition, and good enough for "in sight" storage. Tank you for sharing such thinking. - Bill

Excellent poem. You manage to take me through life in three verses.

Wow, Erin, this is deep, powerful. This will have many meanings to the myriad who read and study it. To me, I see a crotchety self-serving young man who has a good heart, but hides it. As he ages, he mellows, still hiding his heart, and in old age, dying, recognizes his mistakes, missing all he has lost, but too late, and he grieves from the soul. An excellent poem!

In sense this too reminds me of where my head was at tonight writing "Bulwer's Bligh in Bed" but in another sense...of aging.
Enjoyed this side step into yet a different thought of same...
Love and Peace~
