future focus slipping
the boulders of past return
the scent of completion thinning
vision of reality’s burn
unwanted opinions exploding
a lightning strike that’s near
souls in the back ground whisper
I turn they disappear
struggle without retention
movement with no path
acts of violence filtered
consumption of your wrath
the sky is always burning
anxiety at it’s peak
emotion keeps erupting
heartbeat getting weak
I never had an extreme thought before that night. I stood like a statue in a winter storm, a blustery whirlwind of thoughts racing around me as I couldn’t move.
That morning was like no other , every ritual was followed as any other day. The drive to work had appeared to take for ever but was also event free. I parked in my usual spot and exited the car ,as I turned to walk into the building a women ran up to me grabbing my arm pulling me between two cars. Expressions of fear emitted from her shaking body. Her tear stained face looked as if she hadn’t slept that night. I was looking in all directions for her attackers but there wasn’t a soul around . As I looked back she had disappeared, freakishly I looked around but didn’t see a thing. I rushed into the building telling no one of my sights.
I strolled in the doors and things inside were different. The smell was of burnt electricity , almost gut wrenching I covered my mouth and nose as I slowed to a crawl spying in every direction. I moved slowly down the hallway in the direction of the elevator . I peered in one office door to see if a friend had made it in . The office was well lit as I drifted slowly in . I called out a name but got nothing in return. A loud crash spilled out of the hallway as I turned to look a voice called my name from the office across the hall. My skin crawling I edged towards the door…..

Losing loved ones
leaves are falling , like unwanted pain
days grow shorter , my thinking turns vain
colors around us , we miss them each day
the penitence of life we all will once sway
my journey has started with all that I knew
since then my knowledge , I try to construe
life has its meanings , we must find our own
once it is found , we then must atone
this journey continues day after day
emotion , strength and courage are all on display
leaves are still falling , pain turns to reign
overcome with thought , I try to abstain

I’m hitting a real rough patch lately , being consumed by total silence and loneliness ….I have so many problems in the social world. I seem to be having trouble finding a place in this world . I sometimes feel I have done all I am going to in this life and have nowhere to turn, it’s ridiculous because of the support I have in place but still I feel this way.
Some of the friendships I have seem to be in place only because of the situation I’m in , I feel if things being different , my social life would also be different. I also may be over thinking some things . I still see how some people act towards me and I see them in other situations as they are totally different towards others. True friendship is a great thing and as of now I feel alone in my journey onward.
I truly need a direction to turn in ,to just put all I have towards it , and get past these feelings of destitution and despair . While a lot of people say it’s ok to be lonely ……It sure doesn’t feel good sometimes.
