The poetry archives #46 – Marts (for much deliberation)

Electronic sound populating my brain. 
My mind is on fire 
And I can’t think about what not to do. 
Another morning 
New things dominating 
Old situations still prominent 
The decision isn’t so difficult 
With uncertainty and distrust hovering over an inexperienced inconsistent soul. 
Now lets calculate the many ways that deem me unsuitable 
Lets count the many things I cannot do 
Then turn off the lights and think of other things encompassing people and situations of worth
Of items outside imagination 
Where the likes of passion and optimism and progress thrive. 
I’ll remove myself from the dark things and the dark thoughts 
And the negatives trying to overpower my reason 
I’ll disconnect from worthless celebrations 
Or where someone once possessing degrees of confidence 
Now displays doubt 
Or aspects of fear. 
There is nothing to celebrate here 
And the fire in my mind has now been quenched… 
Electronic sound still populates my brain…

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...
