Death of Tears

Unfettered passions congeal with confusion
each night as in darkness, my mind's journey roams
depths of desire, deviant and untrusting
leaving me despair.

Twisting tourniquets ever-tightening grip
as urges of fantasy relieve torment
in tranquil pools of obsession, life falters
yet intensely grows.

Weeping rivers cast onto downy cushions
meet their demise in sonant voiced billowed plumes
that cosset my fatigued head with caresses
of indulgent dreams.

    Not sure if the "twisting tourniquet" is the sheets from tossing and turning (smile) or, drug use. Either way this powerful write speaks to me ... Congratulations Jem for having your heartfelt writing selected as a feature this week here at the Soup !!
