•  A Longing Soul
           >> View all 2

Fire seeping from ducts
like tears.
A searing madness
brands the soul.

Enraged and caged
like a wild animal.
Successful and free
Roaming barren land.

Blood curdles
like lemon and cream.
A witches brew boils over
if not stirred.

The fire sizzles
like a screaming demon.
Steam rises to the sky
defeated by dryness.

They must be dissolved
like sugar in water.
One must know this
Before there is peace.

To dance
like angels above.
Escaping from rage
perhaps by chance.

Like a hovering cloud
On a rainy day.
Rage that means nothing
will soon go away.

It's been my impression that rage always "means" something, usually something
negative. This is, therefore, rather confusing in some regards. However, there's]
a modicum of truth in it, for sure. Hopefully, it is not autobiographical.
