I feel the pressure in my mind

The flashing spikes I fear

Making it all unclear

As the constant bind

Tears at me, across me, into me

Cushions cover up my skull

Hiding the pressing source

Suppressing the inner force

Hitting me sharp and dull

Like a great bell, clanging hell, not so well

Then it all goes clear

I can hear the clarity

Hear your vulgarity

A stage of no fear

Like droplets in a quiet pond, of this I’m fond

Please do not release the bond

That brings the ringing back again

Renewal 21

round and round

torrents racing

up and down


spinning sideways

vortex bound

crushing thoughts

suppressing sound

safe and steady

schemes unfold

flat and smooth

linearly bold

taking off

upon cool air

making plans

we might dare

switching over

from each state

brings us closer

to our fate

Come light my fire



My head screams and screams

Nothing happens

No rescue team is coming to my aid

Thinking quickly    

Fire! Fire!

My head screams again

Still no one comes

Something is wrong inside my head?

Storming through the processes

My actions no one notices

That to be there

And demand a presence

One has to test the very essence

Of moving lip in line with thought

Not something that was taught

But listening now,

I hear new words

Fire! Fire!    I say aloud

Teams arrive around my cloud

I’m making friends unconsciously

Attracting me expansively

Splashing my head of fire

They can now hear and admire

New words emitting out of me

Words that come are all for free

Repeating each assiduously

Rendering each awesomely

Feeling feedback flowing forth

Gaining golden gifts graciously

Some fly around and drift up high

Some drop like stones that wish to die

But in my ears I now hear sound

This fiery stimuli I have found

To be coordinated

Not just simulated

Fire! Fire!    I say aloud

Giving expression to a muse

Not really meant to confuse

But given out as how I feel

My previous life was so unreal

white out

his wild work attacks

as the north wind’s masonry

mounts stone by stone

over the hidden thorn

at the garden’s end

all friends are shut out

as snow covers all

making us again isolated

from the day’s toils

a time for reflection

a time to clear one’s mind
