Tropical Depression

Tropical Depression short poem

Photo by PressureNet

sky gone the color of strong black tea
wind assists everything toward the ground
mountains were born for withstanding this
world howl builds around craggy teeth
when rain joins it mixes and remixes
ultimate alchemist its runoff is life itself
deep below ocean surface pliable bodies
flex with the gong of air on water
while at home I sit with the power out
evening racing with the global spin
listen to the voiceless shriek in the eaves
eventually I have to scream back scream
out my life and my thrill at being afraid

Depression short poem

Hope burns bright…lighting the way through the darkness…it vanishes…dreams of tomorrow, torn away…walls crumble…and he who dwells amongst the shadows…strikes without warning…his poison fills me…corrupting my body, my mind, my soul…forced to suffer…a captive made…chained, forever cursed…my nightmare, a twisted
