Addiction

You’re choking, fiercely spluttering In depths of darkness, as the weight Of all your failure presses down And alone, you scream in the night   The surging fire of your heart Creates a muddled stormy mess Now all your self-control destroyed You sink into mania’s clutch   Burning overtakes your senses Leaving them numb, exceptContinue reading “Addiction”

Distraction

You’re most vulnerable Absent distraction Nothing to hide your Bubbling emotion   You thought the reverse That with time and space You’d at last find a Break from your mind’s race   But there is no calm No stillness and ease When really, deep down The soul is diseased   Image: Edvard Munch, The DayContinue reading “Distraction”

Trapped

She lays helpless in a haunted embrace As whispers of night call mockingly Sinister words, mind doubting the body It’s caught in a brittle and barren world   Her vision is blinded by burnt shadows As they brush her spirit callously Burning despair and bitter fear, tramples A heart locked in hopeless thought   BeContinue reading “Trapped”
