The Struggle

A Poem by A.j. Dru

Another poem I just jotted down. Hope you like it.


The Struggle

By AJ Dru


Desperate to keep my head on level,

I struggle with a source inside my soul.

Self-righteous and resentful rebel,

a head for a heart and the heart is a hole.


Seeping from my veins in sick salvation,

Sweating all the pain out in a rage.

Unable and unwilling to ignore this sweet sensation,

I play this tragedy out, this world is my stage.


Broken are the promises left unspoken,

Never to utter the words that I don't mean.

Disturbed by the thoughts my mind soaks in;

Filthy fodder, this fuel for the fiend.


Breathless and buckled down

Beneath the night's cool calm,

The music mocks this tiny quiet town,

Sleeping as still as the pulse behind my palm.
