Torrentially Yours

Hybrid feelings
Numbness and pain
One is at a tragic loss
While the other is at a tragic gain
As all is nameless upon its shallow remains

Living upon distance
Upon the further I go
A few things hold any interest
Or is it the fact
That I daydream so elusively slow?

A seasonal distress
Dark and dreary
Wet in withered dismay
Is hope worth clinging onto?

Such precedence
To a woe of glooming
Heart in shards inside this chest
And the beats keep burning

Inside of me
A misunderstood yearning
Some try to cave it in
While others relish in its burdens

Life and its twists
Seasonally fluent
A language unfounded
In a tongue full of confusion

The correlation of the soon
May show the origins of these feelings
Two as one searching for pleasure
As pain becomes deterrent

Losing one self
Finding another self
Something rather exclusive
Dreaming of summer bliss
A feeling of love reminisced
Higher pleasures

Hybrid feelings
Feelings of pleasure
As one is at a loss of words
While the other gains in higher quality of expression

My heart is strong
Just another battle
If either right or wrong
All the trivial worrying does not matter

Here I am
Fixing myself again
Am I ready for another battle?
Will everything be even closer to home?

Even if I were to have only myself
I still would never do this all alone

Adam Scrivener, if ever it thee befall
Boece or Troilus for to write anew,
Under thy long locks thou may'st have the scall
But after my making thou write more true!
