Bad Place


I am within this very bad place

So malevolent and oh so very dark

Serious is a kind word to describe the facts

The bitter taste of demons voice jubilates

Over clouding all beauty thatís left behind

Bitter emotions choke me up

Suffocating heart

Don't forget to dip them in the milk. They taste better than way.

Dear work is indeed getting more and more vivid, better as time goes on. I hope this particular piece is not factual, for you do not need to be in such a place. Take care my friend and stay in touch.

The author is floundering in rings of madness, of every-dayness, of life. I would offer her a chocolate chip cookie, would I could...

I am beginning to believe that you are in training for something much grander than you could ever imagine.

Suffering is a form of refining!

Feel what you are feeling but don't let it rot the roots of who you are.

STAND STRONG! And focus on the good at the end of the day, not what rankled you and what is unresolved!
