mind purge 2


Inspiration hits with a flash, stories written on the go. A rumble of laughter and the tale is heard only in echoes. The wind blows me in a new direction. Whom shall I visit next?

Story is marked as mature.

when gush becomes a trickle, when the pressure

no longer seeks to split my seams asunder,

i'll take some time to mend each fault and fissure;

i'll mop me clean, emerge in dazzled wonder


is't doom or daylight warming hands and face?

i hope you're there. i pray goodwill remains.

your mood, and manner, shape my sense of place,

from hell to haven. pleasures change to pains.


I'm too dependent. Yes, I see it now.

This therapeutic writing has its uses.

What I can't figure's why I still allow

Your whims to rule me. Why abide abuses?


Love's lack's not why. Hurt thrives as love exists.

I ought to draw a bath and slash my wrists.
