A Room Full Of Symbols

life
crashes in on you
like
a wave
or a room full of cymbals

to survive
you shut down
go limp
tap out

life
moves on
like
the wind
or the hands of a clock

to catch up
you run
you jump
you get back in touch

(D James)

walking through it

nervous
pressure

feelings
running rampant

wanting
it all
to go
away

moments
of clarity
fogged
by anger

wanting to
give this
pain
away

yet

knowing
there is
something
on the other
side of it

something
I need
to see

another way
to be

(D. James)
