An Empty Longing

I feel a little too feverish

Like someone should bring me a blend of roses

Or a cream-filled cone to cool me

Like I need a thousand smiles

Wrapped in one box package

Or a million kisses in a small glass

I want wine but just a drop.

I feel intoxicated, like a beer-soaked sponge.

A little too drunk to keep my head at still.

A little too frenzied,

Like I want to dance

I am in a trance

Staring deep into nothingness

Looking hard at a road unending

I feel like I need a tap,

From a cold gentle hand.

These are the holiday-themed drinks to sip now in San Diego.Get photo from here

So I sit at one-twenty listening to my own music

A tune that upsets my nerve cords

Like a drum beat about by delinquents

And an enslaved soul at the corner of a cage

I have a small light to hold on to

A love once dead but pure in spirit

Begging me to hold my gaze on it

Like a straw I direly need before I drown

I feel a storm tossing me up and down

But I still take not the hand that reaches out

And senseless, I throw myself in

Drowning in my shame and wild thoughts

It’s here that the fisher casts His net.

And all my fears filter free

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...
