All Tied Up

Whimsical and sick Delighted though distraught Diseased and can’t resist With heart lessened, learned to not Perturbed and taught to be tied in knots Restricted, each breath comes to a stop Halted in the silence then loud gasps in a struggle To be swimming but losing energy Trying to find […]

Breaking The Habit

Ad infinitum a never ending sequence Lying in the wake of repetition; habitual frequence To wonder predictably all the same things is the unconscious Dauntless and diving, freefall thoughts thriving; to want, I want this Faultless and driving, the sea calls out trying; a wave, reaches for the sky ..
