Like This- Mitchell David Ring

It wasn’t always like this

The walls used to move in the distance

slow rolling thunder too far away to hear

and rivers gently flowing beneath my feet

Now the floods are rising

and I brought the walls close around me

to drown out the raging storm

So I sit and wait and listen to the voices outside

calling out to someone

maybe to me, or someone like me

or just shouting at an indifferent sky

daring the cloud cover to break

and reveal what floats above it


What is your biggest fear?

I am a Social Worker by day and an artist/writer by night. I use the written word in an attempt to make sense of the secret worlds and dysfunctional dynamics that lurk beneath the facades of our daily interactions. I am not sure how my writing styles are characterized, nor am I overly concerned about it. I am immensely enthusiastic about music and often connect better with songs than I do people. I also have an intense appreciation for quality wines and whiskies, frequently consuming them in excess. I like things that smell good and struggle to manage the symptoms of a life-long relationship with depression. So, why "grumpygorman"? Spend some time here and find out...
