    Betwixt happiness and content lives the love child
    of
    Abandonment and Hopeless~ness…
    the mistress to Indifference
    where dignity loosens
    and falls off like dead skin
    and
    oohh the sin
    that has boiled the heart within.
    …a damp, dark, ranky stank now permeates through pores.
    Stagnant, you’ve become because of closed doors
    and love given to old whores.
    a warm soul
    is now
    hardened
    cold

    brrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr

    swing low sweet chariot
    come forth and carry your boy home
    through bible verses he has roamed
    to and fro
    a turned out spiritual ho
    confused because the world turned cold

    *Jesus loves me...*
    HE loves me not…
    HE loves me…
    HE loves me NOT!!!

    34 years and the
    Preachers Kid got
    GOT
    believing in…
    hoping in…
    trusting in…
    I’m dying in…

    and...
    and

    you want me to name this thing that I’m feeling?!?

    Hmmmmmmmm…

    let‘s try “EMPTY“.
    :rain: hookup

    Sometimes the empty feeling is the numbness of too much drama for the psyche. Introspective vibe here poet.

    ...you consistently blow me away
    with your unexpected prose, alliteration
    and uncanny ability to sculpt the most
    formidable metaphors...

    may I touch your poetic bicep... :weights:


    However, on a serious note...
    the profundity of the message in this piece
    weighs heavy with a truth, that for many...
    can not be accepted or even considered
    may all those who travel this road
    find the fulfillment to which they search
    and the peace that comes with it...

    *Applause*

    Your Sage... :heart:
