The Oasis of my Soul
Screams from my pain
Are lost in the silence of my turbulent mind
Serenity is shattered by emotion
The silence is deafening
Broken dreams cut my flesh
And the blood runs quickly
Driven by suppressed needs
Loneliness burns my skin
Inhaling it burns my lungs
It stings my teeth
And I can help but relish it
And detest it
All at once
The oasis of my soul
Made barren and cold by impure interaction
My mind made impotent and infertile
From unfulfilled necessity
My protests are lost in the shadow of emotion
Silent urge deafens my soul
