A frown was forming

Over a worried eye.



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 knuckles 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.”


(written in 1972)

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 I am experimenting with birth and death charts. If you wish to contact me, or request a birth chart, send an email to (And, in case you are also interested, I have an extensive list of celebrity birth and death details if you wish to 'confirm' what you suspect may be a past-life experience of yours.) Bless.
