a mouthful of words


a mouthful of words

if i cannot purge the words from my soul
if i let them built fester and grow
and allow my emotions to overflow
then my brain and my heart will surely explode

if the words fall from my mouth into the street
and no one is there to listen to me
is there a sound from my eyes as they tear up and bleed
or do i stand all alone in the street with my needs

if a mouthfull of words should get caught in my throat
and i can't catch my breath when i'm starting to choke
and the world has forced me to vomit my soul
and i'm put on display like a freak in a show

i cry through my eyes the thoughts that i think
they flow like blood from the wounds that i keep
reminders with salt as they continue to bleed
and gush from the pain that i carry in me

if i close up my eyes and keep them inside
the thoughts that i think locked up nice and tight
and try to surpress them or cast them aside
the pain that i feel will never subside

so i continue to purge the my emotional flow
and do not allow it to fester and grow
i will not choke from the words in my throat
as i open my mouth and vomit my soul

if i stand all alone in the street with my needs
and there is no sound from the tears that i bleed
i will cry through my eyes the thoughts that i think
and tend to the wounds and that i carry with me

Another great write from you... This one has a new home in my favorites. What a wonderful place for it. You have talent. Thank you for sharing with everyone the wonders that lie within. I love your style. A very good write, one that I can surely relate to.

Dano - you certainly like to write from the darkside ... The deep emotions you convey in your writings are intense and surreal. Makes one think ...either you lived thru this pain in reality and purge it thru your poetry (if this is the case.. I'm sorry to hear and hope your writing helps you to heal) - OR - You are very creative and have such an amazing insight into the human condition that you can convey these feelings with ease. -OR- Maybe it's both? In either case .. you're an amazing writer ..... Another Great Job! .....Ken

Poetry is not an expression of the party line. It's that time of night, lying in bed, thinking what you really think, making the private world public, that's what the poet does.

Allen Ginsberg (1926-1997) U.S. poet.
