 ramblings and things

smallstepsmadpotepotriemantheartfulcodgerscogterrasverse
just words


there are bundles of words
they all scream in my brain
they jostle and they fight so
they drive me nearly insane
they pull me from my bed
in the middle of the night
send me to my keyboard
before even half daylight
and my head is throbbing
at their every single shout
as I sit without inspiration
as they demand to be let out
then my fingers touch a key
it's like a dam that's breached
and those words pour forth
as compromise is reached
i save them all
let them keep
stagger off for
much needed sleep
it's like a fever of the mind
like a journey through despair
this unremitting pressure to
release those words from there
some times I think of
a mental form of rape
the way those words
so fight to escape
but only
through their release
can i enjoy
anything like peace
they are bundles of words
all jumbled mixed about
yet somehow they speak for me
as they flow so forcefully out
