In the dark space of my mind
Rampant thoughts ravage
The peace that I try to salvage.
I slowly exhale..
Shaken out of my reverie
The whistle of the cooker
Shattering the deafening silence
On the tip of my tongue
A morsel lingers, I taste it with
A sinking feeling in the pit of my stomach.
The routine of chores drags me
Through infinite hours. A cacophony of
Mundane thoughts filter into my conscious
Inspirations, aspirations pushed as far away
As far away..to the back of my mind.
An abrupt incoherency shakes the very depths
The essence of spirit wanting to let go
Feeling spent from a force, a force that drives
The palpitating grey matter steaming
Boiling over, waiting to burst through
Cracks in sanity..
Trying to scream, but gasps escape
Sobs die in throat, a parched hiccup
Bloodless eyes dry, a hangover of pain
I bite into lips tasting blood
Where is the purity of oxygen?
Has my life line been gone..long gone?
I couldn't care less, has my heart been turned to stone?
Exhausted I flop into bed
Burying my head into pillows, stifling dreams..
