The Battlefield of My Mind

It was like my psychosis was bombarded by my kindness. All things that bestow internal leverage against my hope left a fragment of my soul… forever forsaken. The slanted bevel of the raging reverie became my friend. I sought fear at times, but it seems like freedom did derelict me when I was weak. Will I finally seek a resolution to ease my anguished mind; or will abandonment be my one and only reason to exist? I have fallen down a sinkhole of misery’s hollow grave, needing love to survive; craving reasons to follow dreams I longed would come true. Hoping one day this life is just an illusion I can break free from without the worry of pain leaving me breathless… once again. Eight Word Challenge Contest Kai Michael Neumann June 1, 2019

Great poetry, L.L. The slanted bevel of the raging reverie deserves more than a silver, I think.
