He looked at her like he wanted her.
She looked at him and saw the darkness. The darkness that was just like hers.
He saw her body.
She saw his mind.
He felt bad for his lust. He wanted to understand her more.
So he tried. He got into her mind and it scared him. The darkness and pain she was in.
He left her.
Later on he saw his darkness and realized she should have been the one that was scared.

                                 With love,
(when living nightmare pierced real time
thus engendering the following rhyme)

adrenaline powered stealth bomb blast
with the noggin of this, ah... ur... bane chap,
     which debilitating anxiety doth outlast
means to cope (thunder and dumb struck)
     with stranger mental things

     at expressed vertigo, nausea, racing heartbeat
     ogres recreated tormented, torpedoed, tortured
     most decades from my yesteryear,
     which aye presumed long passed.  

now, within my head "guerilla"
     warring faction
     lobs a grenade followed by "bombs away"
broadside finding this body electric doing

     a kamikaze nosedive into sick bay
where major organs suffer direct hit
     analogous to a giant fist
     smashing pumpkins,

     sans thine flesh as if clay,
which psychic sortie plagues my ability
     to function reduced
     tub bing bedridden one day

approximately one week ago
     from this thirtieth of April
     tooth house sand ate teen gray
ting, grinding, and grounding with figurative

     threshing blades employed
     to winnow chaff from hay
literally crushing willpower,
     where invisible jaws

     of sharpened steel interlay
atop pulling stalwart garrison strafed,
     (akin to a crash test dummy) named Jay
Walking to become blindsided

     obliterating every last trace to stay alive
     hence, this emergency transmission,
     viz this bloke communicating
     desperate plaintive wail,

     that I haint okay
with plea PLEASE HELP
     this tortured soul on verge pray
begging tubby rescued before drowning

     like a panicky gull clay pigeon,
     and buoy albatross
     strangling me far distant from any quay
quickly sinking spirits,
     abducted via fiendish runaway!
And sometimes I wonder if I’m the problem.
It’s messed up when you think all the problems and issues in your life is all your fault.
Maybe it is. Maybe I overthink things and they become more problematic in my head.
And this is why it’s nearly impossible to trust my thoughts. Cause at this point I don’t know what I’m really supposed to do. I don’t know what’s good or bad anyone. It’s time to figure out what part of my head I should listen too. I don’t think this is gonna turn out so well.

Writing this poetry, can
be a cathartic process;
it allows me to explore…
all that’s within me. By
doing so, I am able, to
uncover the inner finesse

that He has placed inside
me. Simultaneously, I am
clearly pushed outside of
my comfort level; between
sharing my work, finding
what’s in me and The Lamb’s

expectation… of my heart,
I find the experience of
writing extremely humbling
and satisfying. Hopefully,
my poetry’s quality will  
improve, as I voice Love…

from my human perspective.

I try to sleep
With my hands close to me

Anti social, maybe?
Fear of intimacy, maybe?
Not really

I sleep with my hands close to me
The physical action
Of crawling inside myself
Crawling inside myself

As if I will be safe there
Within myself
Crawling inside myself
Within myself

If I could
I'd rip my chest open
And crawl
Further inside myself

As if I'd be safe there
As if my hands
Inside my chest
Could grab my heart

Slow it down
Inside myself
Within myself

Would I find
my own hands there
Inside myself

Forcing my heart
To beat this uncontrollable ryhthm
That makes me

Inside myself
I can't seem to fix
What's broken
Within myself

Even if I could crawl inside myself
I know
I know
It won't get better

Fool myself into thinking it's better
For myself
Broken, inside
And out

It's not safe
Inside myself
I know within myself
I have to get out myself...

Raging deep beneath my skin
Beyond thoughts of hope and sin
Lives a current all His own
In my heart it has its home

Breathing deeply from my shattered core
He burns within and releases more
I inhale life from my healing heart
My skin and soul rift apart

In my pain I’ve wondered past
But now I see His way at last
Covered by wrongs hidden by blood
Poised to release its consuming flood

Deep within I feel His force
Raging within from my source
Dying to live He breaths complete
I no longer maintain and compete

To keep Him secret deep within
Beyond all secret’s caged begin
Now the time has come for life
The walls He pierces like a knife

Consumed is my heart and mind
Never will I seek to find
Again myself inside complete
Never again shall I repeat

This tortured path beyond my sin
Pushed beneath my soul within
Now He breaks free to fully live
Free at last my soul to give

No longer hidden behind the walls
Of sins and wrongs gripping halls
Free from all to live and die
No longer required death to cry

Instead I see and hear the life
No longer controlled by sin and strife
One step forward I now take
One future renewed I now make

All because deep within
Beyond all wrongs and damning sin
Raged a current from His will
No longer kept at bay and still.
