Starbucks Can't Solve Everything nk

The pain swings up, Like bright mornings, Moon dog nights. The pain swings, Down we go, Into the depths. Feet feeling The body's heart pain. Coping mechanisms sought out: Time, mediation, sleep. Fishing? What if I caught a trout? To break this mental hold? Starbucks can't solve everything. Even now time runs out. With so much more to say. The sweet, sick swinging of the pain.

I'm honored to be placed! That writing was a dark moment and didn't last long. I used to fish rainbow trout with my dad and uncle in the gulf of mexico..."forever memories" as my dad would say. Thanks again!

Sometimes pain can’t be avoided but must be consoled and laid upon. Sorry you’re feeling down.
