The Darker Side

Updated on October 17, 2013

Burning Rage

Source

Rage

That burning ball in pit

Flaming into the throat

Scorching veins through limbs

Making a mental note

Infectious to the brain

Snaking into the heart

Havoc upon the soul

Reason torn apart

Revenge fueling desire

Compassion soon dies

Understanding absent

Humanity breaking ties

Focused on the feeling

Grows like cracked glass

Obstacles hold you down

Slipping to a lower class

Humans become enemies

Friends pushed away

Loved ones reap the wrath

Anticipate end of day

Broke with no repair

Webs intertwine

Lost higher road

Nothing sublime

Walls of solid brick

Sweat with every swing

Blood ooze from palms

Airborne obstacles fling

Border self destruction

Center touching down

Wade through debris

Solidity refound.

Tired

Source

Tired

Clusters of troubles

Trespassing the mind

Exploding emotion

Wrestle the bind

Mountains keep growing

To difficult to climb

Perseverance now weakened

This sad soul of mine.

Hands won't maneuver

As they once did

Knots form the back

To the good Lord I bid

Older than I am

Wrinkles still hid

Time standing still

Yet to ages I've slid

Health may be failing

With no time to check

Fears are withheld

Must take the back deck

Drowning in obstacles

Lost flesh to a peck

Tears shall sneak out

Thence moisten the neck

Depression does creep

Restless my heart

The body is weakened

Seeks a new start

Strength from no drink

A poisonous dart

No numbing powers

Whence is this dark

Sleep is evading

Expect the next threat

Worries keep dancing

Defenses are kept

Nerves are awaiting

Expecting new debt

Let go of old woes

I have already wept

Seeking assistance

No help to be found

Toes barely scrape

The edge of the ground

Reach with no grip

No branch to be found

Claw at endurance

Final rest will be sound.

Impossible Climb

Source

Discouraged

I share with thou, my cup

Return nearly empty

Though continues to sup

As twas upon entry

Feasting upon the kindness

Constantly whittled down

Confusing the mindness

Yet thou do hold me bound

Erosion deforms the soul

Past focus gone astray

Thy heart shall turn to coal

And pushing thou away

Attempting with all thy might

Still the burdens withstand

Now weary of the fight

Thou becomes a bystand

Introducing delusion

Dreaming now cast aside

Hence create confusion

Survival now abides

I, see me crawling the ground

Yet temporary tone

I Shall again be found

Stand to protect my own

Don't Blink

Source

Don’t Blink!

Exhausted but can't sleep

Here but absent

Sad but can't weep

Angry but silent

Tired of being tired

Weary of my woes

Sick of being sick

No, You don’t know

Fighting and get hit

Climbing and still sink

Struggle but won’t quit

Father time,

I WON’T BLINK!
