When all the bells
And all the whistles
Are packed away
And put back in their wrappers
Where is my wandering attention bound to go
Faced with the prospect of entering another cold winter season
With no sun to heal these festering lesions
And I am not saying life is all bad
Rather it is a hard time of year
Where dreams turn into clashes
And the springs in a once proud mattress
Make even sleep feel like molasses
Maybe tomorrow my angel will come
And I will look back on this
As nothing more than the ramblings of bliss

    Christopher, i like the measurement of resistance in your poem. The sheer stress and tension, will soon flow like water. Love your ending line... xox~pd

    Thank you very mush Poet Destroyer This poem was me trying to write with a measure or temper my resistance and if you feel the tension it is because i am an angry young man without a cause and the fact a writer whose work is read by massive numbers would comment on it so profoundly warms me for the coming winter. Tahnk you
