Attention

trigger warnings

 

Tense:

A frown was forming

Over a worried eye.

 

“Nonsense,”

Says the tongue, warming

To a hurried cry;

 

Yet the teeth began grittin’

As the splintered nails were bitten;

 

The neck became strained and cruel

As its blood turned hot then cool;

 

While the fist was clenched tight

With its knuckle wrenched white;

 

The heart started to burn

And the stomach to churn,

 

For the gut was full of knots

As the muscles pulled taut;

 

But in the head,

From the brain was fed,

“My patient resistance

Has been stretched

To a thin line of time

Between sanity and sadness,

Between profanity and madness.”

 

 

About cdsmiller17

I am an Astrologer who also writes about world events. My first eBook "At This Point in Time" is available through most on-line book stores. I have now serialized my second book "The Star of Bethlehem" here. And to give my blog pages something lighter, I'm sharing some of my personal photographs, too.
