outburst of the tempest

outburst of the tempest

A Poem by Pax
"

~ atlast a poem!

"

 

I am not in pain

But I’m standing in the hard rain

The wetness makes my feet numb

I succumb to be dumb

A foolish playfulness

Hiding the crudeness

-          I roam around in happy commotion

A complete illusion

                

The eye of the storm will come my way, someday

I hope not too soon, but in the distant future

For I am not prepared on the messiness it harbors in its back

The harsh judgments that will pour heavily on my shoulders

Then flowing water will flood my sane world

I need my time to organize

My mental, emotional and physical stability

To stand the outburst of the tempest

i think we have to embrace the storm of emotions in our lives...it will help keep us sane if we don't fight it...

and a hard rain is refreshing once in awhile...and i like the first line...almost a disclaimer...don't believe what you read after this line...

i am not in pain, really.

i felt this poem so much i had to change out of my wet clothes.

A complete illusion"....i liked these a lot as they have just hit me at my heart...feels like the world has now become a mere illusion and every "real" thing is so pretentious!!...i think we all are not ready to embrace the upcoming ups and downs in our life as we just can't predict them and the only thing we need is time to organize ourselves and that's what exactly you have said there!!
This is BRILLIANT...you're truly an inpiration for me...thanks a lot!!

thank you much pete ~ I am grateful with this review ~
Life is just one big pop quiz!
Specific preparation is almost impossible; general principles, however, are constantly given.
Thought-provoking piece, Pax!

In some ways we are the same. I no longer see or hear the music nor the colors as the world to me is silient and the colors dull and faded.

You are very welcome dear Pax
"I roam around in happy commotion, a complete illusion." I think those are my favorite lines, because they show that this person, in some small part of their mind, knows the lie their living, that they can fake a smile for everyone, but not themeselves.
