A few years ago, February 5, 2014 to be precise, I started posting poems on Twitter (under #poetrylive). Well, for the next few weeks, I'll be reposting those poems here as a part of #tuesdaytreats.
My days are short, my nights are long;
The madness pounds inside my skull
My laughter falls, my tears rise;
The more I carry on
The darkness beats inside my chest;
Where's hope to soothe my wrong?
You say words you'll soon regret, feelings I'll never forget;
I'll slowly regress to my childhood state
Where nothing, and I mean nothing, can drown out this beating heart
When I hear it I'll know (oh, how I'll know)
Why I still dream aloud
chasing that creative spark that sets everything in motion...
