A Photo-Poetry Collaboration

There is a sense of drowning
an endless pondering that lingers
wanders down the endless hallways of the mind.
Tightening of the throat
cutting off the only chance to cry out
an unending unfairness streaks the world with tears.
Even sitting and rocking in silence
everything echoes painfully
a clear sounding off of the pain eating away at the mind.
Heart wrenches, trying to flee the scene
a vessel of emotion that abandons this shell
flees without remorse, like all the rest.
No logic live here
in this land without rhyme or reason
what survives is only shadows of the inner truth.
