Adrift

Riding the emotional roller-coaster Chaos reigning through my mind Stuck in a loop of my own making Praying to the universe to be kind Like a pendulum in perpetuity Switching between extremes Can’t decide what mood I’m at Living carefree in my dreams No right now or even just a right As lost as a […]

Finding Solace

I’m lying awakeStaring at the fan overheadTrying to fathomThe differenceBetween the bladesAnd my mindFor both seem to beSpinningLike a tornadoUnstoppable and unkind I find myselfPonderingAt the oddest thoughtMy eyes if openSee perhaps darkerThan if shut tight There’s thoughtsI’ve put offIn the hopes that theyDisappearAnd dreams born in my mindI have embracedIn the hopes that theyCome […]

Free
