Bombed Out



~~~

Thoughts fall like bombs

Rippling the plane of my existence

Gravitational waves that push

And pull at my resistance

~~~

Concentric and widening

Past any horizon seen

Blind to what future holds

Unprophetic little dreams

~~~

The random acts

The unanswered truths

The matters of fact

The loss of our youth

~~~

They prey on me

Beaks biting my brain

Exquisite the beauty

Exquisite the pain

~~~

Can’t catch my breath

I catch nothing at all

The silence simply waits

For another bomb to fall

~~~

    sounds a bit like information overload…

  5. At least your bombs often end with spectacular explosions on the page.
