THE WORDS ARE FLYING
The words are flying wide and wild this brooding sleepless night,
But none seem to fall in line, nor stay long enough within my sight
To deliver options to my pen, nor to charge the ink lying waiting therein,
A dark liquid which seems to understand my depths of joylessness wherein
I slip in struggle against ill thoughts, brooding views, a clinging fight
And calling shadows show, to me, to the world, a false delight
While trying to raise the alarm and mount a force for urgency to fight
As the fever presses in and is not so soft in touch or pressure light
And there find self-trapped, wrapped tight in a blanket of self-inflicted doubt
Questioning all that lay exposed within a single candle’s flickering light
While all belief told might not be true that comes anxious into view
And a candle weak could easy lose its light if the wind a bit stronger blew.
