Always on

Always on

“I can’t switch off…”


I can’t switch off
I’m burning out
I want to stand,
and scream and shout
I want to cry
pull out my hair
rip off my face
tear up my chair
jump out the window
crash into a car
slam into to the road
seep into the tar
dissolve inside the earth
in the stillness and the cold
experience the silence
as darkness takes its hold.

  1. *hehehe* Love it! It has the rhythm of a Dr. Seuss poem! And for humorous verse, that IS a compliment!

    I saw that you had visited my “Randa Lane…” blog and liked what you saw. I hope you will visit often or, if the spirit moves you, “follow” along with those who enjoy my poetry, haiku, tanka, and other small verse forms. *easy smile*

    Randa Lane blog:

    I’ll be exploring your site frequently in the days ahead. Thanks for brightening my day!
