{overwrought by} GUILT
flooding my soul

my heart is heavy
i cannot see to comprehend
the magnitude of this {sigh}
this guilt thing

my weakened state

born out of anger and sorrow
over grievous mistakes
my SELF makes

i lament
over the death of my mate
no...not death in the physical sense
but lost to me {just the same}
as she walked away
...content

in my demented state
there are cavernous voids that hold me prisoner
surrounded by a swirling mist
weighted down by ball and chains that bear my father's name

a prisoner...

of wanton (lust) and
rampant (ecstasy)
bounded
by all things left to me
causing self-imposed sufferings
induced by the soul of me

i find that i tire of the futility of fighting against this
...this swirling mist

in my demented state
i look for answers...reasons for my fate
deep in the swirls of darkened mystery
i search for things...so far, hidden to me
how do i discover who i am to be
when, even my SELF, i've come to deceive

hidden behind the shadows of a tomorrow day
where drama resides...and conflict comes to play
i open the door to my dark side
hasten my thoughts
as i quicken my stride

a hungry mist swam across the moon
i listened, in the darkness, to the call of the loon
and, soon, before darkness gave way to the day
i sat before (dawn)
to hear what she (had to) say

today

MY PEEPS...

when the shadows of darkness
hover over us
it's hard to live
IN GOD WE TRUST
until you can pull yourself
from the deep
you're nolonger living
to life...you're asleep

'til you're FREE.

THANKS FOR FEELING ME.
