The Shatter Point
In point of fact
I find myself amazed
that I should feel so steel
when fire runs through my brain
my heart beats
lava and heated coals
but my extremities
far too non-responsive for my taste
Perversity as well as desire
cause me to cast these words
pointed but futile
midst ones and zeros
many far fairer then these
but for that
the value of which
I'm not ashamed
these words would be better placed
but there are other projects
these words were meant to prime.
My pen was meant to grace these others
and these I find myself dreading
even when their accomplishment
always fills me with sweet relief
What is to be done?
I know not how to drive myself
as I have been self driven before
I shudder to think
I am too burnt to move
life is long yet.
Yet discomfort and circumstance
is driving me to the edge
which edge I am not certain
hopefully not whence I have come from
but i feel
the heat rising
and the flesh cooling
bringing me to my shatter point.
