I Think Not - Poem by James Casey

When the darkness falls across your face.
Does the glow then drain from your soul
Then is it time to loose control?
I think not

When the power runs through your veins
Magnetic heat forces a piercing smile.
Then, is this time to end all self denial?
I think not

When you feel like nothing matters.
Your body shudders with much desire.
Should you act on this raging fire?
I think not

If a tragic anti hero of your own tale
Holds this illusion in its claw.
Do you rip yourself apart, ignore the law?
I think not

As the world spins and makes less sense.
It's so easy to let go, and loose your mind.
Will you? Can you? Want to?
Encourage all your urges of this kind?
I think not

When the devil speaks to you of things past
Anger can flare up in you for revenge
Should you, could you strike?
I think not
