Down The Drain

Drop by painless drop Washed down the drain, Flowing to a stop Free from my brain Hysteria and torment With regret to follow, Make their descent Amongst fear and sorrow There they all go No need for them now, Still learning to do so Was never taught how So deeply instilled And clotting my veins, Their intention fulfilled Until I took the reins To draw the old strife Siphon all the negative, Right out of my life For a chance to live!

Kelly, I knew I was missing something, somehow. I thought it was the can opener. Nope, it was likely this poem. Happy holidays and best wishes in the New Year. -Richard
