Can you hear the screaming?
« on: May 20, 2016, 04:47:09 pm »
Can you hear the screaming?
The wailing or the keening?
Some screams aren't made for ears
These screams are made for you
From fears.

You can hear them when it's quiet
When you let your mind run riot
Questions bubble forth unbidden;
What? How? Why? WHY?
Focus and they all embiggen.

Thought alone can't find the answers
To these amorphous concepts
Down that path lies rising panic
The screaming just gets louder

The idea for this has been rumbling around in my head for a while - I thought I wanted to do a rant for a while but I don't really have the conviction for it.

I actually wanted to do another couple of verses too but for the progression of the piece I felt that they should be more positive & about how to progress out of this state of being.. unfortunately I don't know how to do that just yet.

Also I haven't ever really written poetry before so feedback/discussion is appreciated/encouraged.
