    Wrapped up in a shell
    with no thought of yesteryear
    gliding on today and wishin it
    would rain, rain so hard it cleanse
    thy soul, for thy soul is in torment
    torment so bold its beats thy soul,
    soul so struck it cant break the hold,
    laughin into the memories of control
    realizin and spiralling into the deep brings
    shameful outcry, outcry so loud it weakens
    thy limbs for thy is tumbling down into the pit
    of torment, torment so jealous it takes all good
    and gives thy its sweet presents of tears and screams
    screams heal thy torment and brings escape, escape into
    realms of light and remembrance, remembrance gives birth
    and silences thy torment and lays it cool hand against the screams
    and thy healing begins to invade the soul and sweep its tears in
    careful oblivion to await thy treacherous moaning that sears its stab
    into the core until thy revelation is spoken, and thy dying dream grabs
    hold and soaks until thy glow is shined and thy rainbows of life are again
    healed and stroked, stroked and smoothed as thy rush begins, layering itself
    in energetic calm to see thy beginning beginning, and thy ends end, and know that thy healed thy torment.

    Gee, so much to praise about this. Just the flow of this, was so smooth and intent. The structure, the words cascade outward leading us to the uplifting....discovery. As deeply as I felt the piercing ache of this, the ending made me smile, because the rejuvenation has begun. Wonderful, wonderful piece poet.
