emotions are like water

Posted: January 11, 2017 in Uncategorized

like water the natural inclination of emotions is to flow downhill

the push/pull of the heart pumps streams and rivers of it

through a degraded landscape of veins and arteries

this eroded heart is familiar territory


cracked and scoured by my heavy thoughts

the earthmoving equipment of a mind running on gravity

we are like tractors towing massive loads of bullshit

far more efficient than hauling the unhappiness on our backs
