Image for the poem Away.... to.... A way

Away.... to.... A way

Away with thoughts
that haggard a heart
and press upon
the most (d)effective of hurts

Away with sorrow
that creeps as it builds
stripping joy and laughter
feasting so heartily— full

Away with pain
that settles too easily
stroking my back
while cooing a tender throb hypnotic

Away with doubt
whose hideous claws
curl cunningly vicious
laboring each fought for breath  

Away, you sordid nightmares
leaving fear frozen solid
so panic can whimsically attack
under the cover of surreal darkness

Away with trivializing
nitpicking right to insanity's teetering brink
Reminder: there's no such thing as perfect
everyone has been a random fuckup.

Away with me riddled of worst behaviors
to a way, brand new
requiring a bit of magical belief
in the pure power of pen pressed to paper

Where strengthened alchemy of indelible ink
preforms healing of brutal ails from within
purging deep harmful darknesses
leaving a fair semblance.... of twinkling hope

 a beacon
lighting the way....
