close up of a bonfire flame

I want to rage I want to rage so fiercely Like a hurricane ripping up the land I want to rain fire and brimstone I want flood the lands with stormwaves tall as mountains I want to swing my sword cutting through meaningless flesh I want to scream until your eardrums burst I want to let go let go of holding back the chaos And thus I sit My back to the wall Arms wrapped […]

Sadness

dramatic night shot of full moon peeking through bare branches of trees

Sadness is leaking Like broken plumbing Sewage of pain Better out than in ey? Trying to stop the leak With bad habits Chocolate Mainly No drugs Never drugs Brain on emotional rollercoaster And it keeps spilling everywhere If you don’t watch it It will stick to you After a hug with me I don’t want that So I leave Walk alone In the dark In the woods I am not scared I am the woods […]

The tumbleweed of random thoughts Can your mind be empty? Breathe the thoughts away Let them roll, roll, roll Down the stream of consciousness The tumbleweed of random thoughts Sometimes takes me places I do not want to go So like tumbleweed I just Let them roll, roll, roll Away Until I am ready to look at the tumbleweed
