Fight the Reflex

Posted: October 25, 2017 in Uncategorized

Fight the reflex stifle the impulse
phantoms of pleasure within a mirage of contentment
avoidance is no escape.

The portrait of my life was painted on a mirror
there’s a bit of Dorian Gray in everyone
these unexpressed thoughts will be the death of us.

That said they have their value
for some the only way is silent combat.

  1. That middle stanza is very wonderful
