The rain tapping on my window intrudes,
upon such a night...

In my dreamy rear view

I stand at the front of the exam hall, which is in total silence.
Grey desks stretch out in neat rows -

Your mind's in knots,
as stress plagues thoughts.

ANYTHING GOES ON A SUNDAY
day, peace, silence,
As I claim my own parcel of solitude
from yesterday's banging boom,
I see heaven expanding through you
in me: fireflies glow rare as Sunday’s bliss,

The crumbling floor of futility;
Dripping minutes bleed through cracked
Rusty hours, as wafting feathers

Warbling quietly to whistle...
There is an elephant in the room

Media’s chosen information.

the big elephant in the room.
Stress is put on the suggestive
keeping tongue and the mind active.

For absolutely no reason at all
The storm was withered in the stagnant air
It seems so incredibly crystal clear quiet
Even if you wanted to paint ......
