Emotional Fever

Quinn Dombrowski


In the grip
Of bitter emotions
Sickness creeps inside the mind
Causing ordinary thoughts
To burn

Burning
Slow
Through
Time

Turning matter into embers
Embers falling into ash
Until nothing remains
But a void cavity

Eyes not seeing truth
Ears deaf to the pleas
Alone with the anger
Alone and never free


Then will
The fever rest
Leaving perceptions changed
Making reality
Not to be

Dana

  1. Is this the random sentence one? It flows well, I couldn't tell as nothing is out of place. Good work, good poetry takes a talent I wish I had xo

  3. Is this about being so sick with emotion, that one takes a rain check from reality? *visiting from Write on Edge*
