Disturbing Difference


When in pleasure yesterday
l found out with dismay
That this brandy up my brain
ls not why lm insane
l feel this pounding down my chest
lmplying l might faint
Shall l seize to exist
ln this state who would resist
Like a peel beneath
a thousand marching feet
lts there, its defeat

ls it known, can I be cured?
Of this emptiness inside
