The red pill

...the very edge of madness...

"Breath deep..the gathering gloom

Watch lights fade from every room

Nighttime to some..a brief interlude

To others the fear of solitude" ~Moody Blues~

I move quietly through the darkness...To my escape from the maddening world...

I dream I'm a bird soaring high in the sky...Now I wonder...

Am I a man who dreamed he was a bird...or

Am I a bird dreaming he's a man

Another red pill...

Helmet back on...

continue writing...

As I slowly bang my head against the wall


And again

And again...and the darkness returns

I move quietly through the darkness.....................

    This poem should not have happened.I don't know why it did.It came from somewhere deep and dark...where I suppose it hid...

  • My Venus?

    We met at a club on a dark summer night.She looked so delicious I just had to bite...Now my mind is broken...

  • Annoying little bastard.

    The frustration of a slow but certain march to the end...or is it?"Things are not always as they seem...or are they?". I love this one.

I like the image of wearing the helmet and banging your head on a wall as you write, I feel this way often. The sad thing is I find myself banging my head when I finish writing also. Man, this is a constant act of head banging. Thank you for sharing. Jamie

Like pouring rain,

Confusion continues to fall.

Embrace this life's confusion,

Or bang your head against the wall.
