Fearing the unexplained


Violence on demand


Dreams are the releasing of our heart and soul’s freedoms.

Sometime they venture into the undesirable land of fear,

and in its tormenting darkness we are alone and afraid to be there.


But it is only that which we do not understand,

the place and time of our birth was violence on demand.


Stars collapse and destruction abounds only to then congeal,

no one there to hear the noise, no sound at all,

heat from the tearing of metal squeals,     

emotions scream within the silence there is only the pain that we feel.


Melting of diamonds gold and steel,

the radiance of nuclear bonding and fusion,

molecular confusion, the future uncertain,

explosions inverted, the present structure of everything now perverted.


So wake from the schemes in your dreams on the darkest of nights,

it may turn out to be the violent creation of something very beautiful within the sphere of your life.
