Rolling Frustration - Poem by Joshua Giard

I feel it
in my veins,
if I can't scratch it out
I'll go insane

Teeth rolling
around flesh and bone
can't help but wonder
'bout the path I chose

I can't make decisions
too filled with doubt.
A clap of thunder
pulls me out

My mind is boring
My flesh is bland
My mind is annoying
I feel just grand

I'm ashamed to want this
A chorus of screams
I feel sick
My skin is green

Smack some sense into me
Make me feel
Whip some pleasure into me
I need to feel

    A good depiction of life at very low ebb, with its deplorable frustrations, well articulated and insightfully penned with conviction. A lovely poem indeed. Thanks for sharing Joshua. Please read my poem MANDELA - THE IMMORTAL ICON. (Report) Reply
