Purgatorial Incarceration

Spoken softly, the cessation of reality occurs.
Brought on by unimaginable stress,
-breaking point,
-resounding snap.
Echoes of laughter ring vibrantly through the clear night,
a sentiment-
repeated by millions,
braved only by a few.
A road to insanity,
paved with gales of breathless wonder.
Imagination.
Prone to incalculable excess-
always, more and more.
A focal point for immoral scrutiny,
it is abused,
wasted in a half-hearted manner.
Those who do not dream,
steal a prize not theirs...
Then discard it like an old lover,
never to discover the
-amazement
that could be.
Purpose denied, dementia sinks
into a fathomless void
-alone.


(I'm sorry most of my poetry seems so dark and depressing, but so you know, it's just the balance to my disgustingly sick sense of optomistic buoyancy!)

------------------
Shoot for the moon. Even if you miss, you'll be among the stars.
-Unknown-
So let the sun beat down upon my face,
It's warmth will dry my tears.
