laughingly, I hide from the truth

only now can I say the words

no one can totally understand

every time I strive to see the future

love does not enter the equation

yes, I’ve finally admitted it to you

Such Anger Dwells



Lost in reflection

Only the tick of the clock for company

Nothing seems to penetrate this blue mood

Each day merges into the one before and before that

Linger long in that bolted cupboard of the mind

Yell for release, or death, or both

Giant dreams are stuffed in, one on top another

Ignored for decades on end, on end

Rattle the doors, shake the skull insane

Leap out towing memories of much great pain
