If You Want It


Bruised and broken with bated breath
You harness the wild stallion of hate
You feel your fingertips siering
With the heat of anger
Your bones are bending
Seated in painful suspense
Before bursting fourth in pleasing sharpness
You laugh as the blood flies
To the walls that imprison you
You spin in circles
Trying to spill in to nothingness
Your dizzy head brings you to the floor
Amoungst your soft colored sheets you start a fire
The same fire that has been burning you all along
Watching it burn you inhale the perfumed scent
Of lost love and hope
But the fire turns against you
As fire tends to do
And you are engulfed
There
Now you have your nothingness.

Poem of the Day

poet George Gordon Byron

I speak not, I trace not, I breathe not thy name;
There is grief in the sound, there is guilt in the fame;
But the tear that now burns on my cheek may impart
