Don't let me...

Don’t let me come back
the artist inside
unable to survive
or stay alive
tear out my creative heart
replace it with…
or plastic
change my skin for feathers
so I might fly
above this chaos and confusion
bury my rage deep
so deep it might sleep
to never be the lava
of someone’s volcano
the perpetual eruption
of thought and feeling
Let me quell my soul
by the banks of some luscious lake
so softly my senses would re-wake
Let me live in harmony
embrace the earth
and thus from death
I emerge with birth

Feeling very very blue
so forgive me if none of these ramblings make sense

    so beautifully written, tender with the rage not buried but transformed into creativity. i cannot imagine you with a plastic heart or a lead or stone one for that matter, nope, no way. but i think you had already found that luscious lake in your own soul at the moment of writing….your artistic expression is subtle and profound, so is your thinking…now i would like to see your acting too….
