    In the gathering madness,
    I want to
    .................................scream
    ................shout
    .............................................................................run
    ..................................cry
    .................................................tell

    about how sick I am of
    life and death
    and
    life and love
    and
    living while loving
    and
    dying in love

    In the gathering madness,
    I want to
    ............................................petition
    ................borrow
    .................................................................................steal
    .................................take
    ................................................................use

    some words to describe my
    pain and regret
    and
    joy and memory
    and
    memories of joy
    and
    hurt from regret


    In the gathering madness,
    I want to
    ...................................................................................ponder
    ...............................deliberate
    .....................................................................dream
    ................wonder
    ..................................................think



    about why I’m so
    tired and disgusted
    and
    angry and afraid
    and
    tired of being angry
    and
    disgusted with being afraid

    In the gathering madness,
    I want to
    ................................................stop
    ................................................stop
    ................................................stop
    ................................................[size=3.5]STOP[/size]
    ................................................STOP

    and get down
