No pain no...brain?


It rains all over me.
The lightning creating shadows of who I wish I wasn't.
Puddles reflect a true darkness that has yet to see the light.
I fear my life is not eternal
And death has no end.
Worms may eat my body.
Dust may become of me.
And peace will be but an idea that floats on the wings of butterflies.
The thunder shakes me.
Grips my bitter core.
Forces my eyes shut from fear.
Fear shock the body and I seize.
Clams are my eyes.
My hands are vices that grasp the nearest objects.
I dance with death for a few seconds.
We dance.
I hold tight...
To what God has given us all.

A very interesting poem...I guess many of us have those negative feelings, but it is hard to feel this way for long, when we are surrounded by so much beauty.

Loved the images
