There, lay back on the couch and tell me all your worst fears ...

by Ted L Glines

He used to be a kind and gentle soul,
giving warmth and cheers,
happily supporting
all of us throughout the years.

If you ever had a problem,
he would be your guiding light,
with his caring hand of help
to set your life a'right.

He often helped the bad and mean,
a friend beyond compare,
an angel's light in darkness,
with his only wish ... to share.

But the story of his end
was an awful gory chiller,
the way this gentle man
became a raving killer.

He gave away his goodness
to them and me and you,
and we gave him all our badness
which, inside him, grew and grew.

Even as he helped you,
he took your problems in,
absorbed them and condensed them,
and made them part of him.

Your neuroses and psychoses
slowly filled him like a page,
'til the day he bubbled over
in a blind and killing rage.

On the news, you saw his story,
pics of bodies everywhere,
and the sadness in his eyes
(he had nothing left to share).

Author's Notes: Not entirely  fantasy,  the process described in this poem is called "transference," and  it  can happen to therapists and psychologists whose empathy lures  them into getting  too much inside their patients.

Quite the graphic. I definitely like the projection of your transference. -- Jeff

Ted...This is a chilling dose of reality and perhaps, just maybe, someone will read this and it will make a ifference. It already has for me.
Happy Valentine's Day!

quite a poem to ponder Ted, all the time I was reading it until I got to the end, I was thinking about the president, just joking but some kid on the news did enter a mall and shoot to death 5 people before being stopped
Reviewed by Felix Perry 2/14/2007
VEry imaginative use of reality blended with fiction to create this chilly write that is a distinct possibility as you have said.

Postal rage inverted.Liked your poetic story.
