Damn Tunnel Of Flames”

I am HOT beneath my collar
I am lonely and desperate
Wipe out that bloody phony smile jerk
I have a fever to kill
I am just so very tired
 Lonely and HOT

I don’t want to take any medication
This time

I am dead serious
I am lonely
I feel like

I am dancing

In those damn fires of hell
I cannot bear

This freaking shit no more
I am mad

I am furious

I am losing my mind
I am desperate
Wipe out that damn smile fool
And don’t tell me

To take bloody medication
My mind is drifting
Drifting… in these flames

I am not crazy
But without any answers

And with sad songs in my head
I am in this tunnel of flames
And I am burning… burning… burning
And I am just so “flippin” tired
I am somebody

 Un noticed
In a damn tunnel of flames!!
Called Marriage!!
I’m Out!!

Like the dead man said in the President's Analyst, "I'm not paranoid, it's the phone company!" Funny how, when you realize the source of your agony, and get off that train, it all becomes clear.

I am not crazy
But without any answers

I am probably crazy, and, I, too, usually have no answers.

Love that graphic, Tinky.

Tinka, a little estrogen would go a long way to cooling down that fire. Better to have a level head about how you want things than let them consume you. That way you can reason a way out.

Dear Tinks . . .

The volatility of this construct is overwhelming. I almost began to cry for your current predicament.

All I can say is, make wise decisions that are good for you, and try to keep your energies focused on the brighter tomorrow that release from this hell will bring.

Stand Strong!
