And How Does That Make You Feel?

GENTLE HURRICANES

I searched for happiness
kept getting a blank page
been chasing vapors
supple ghosts
of former selves

my will’s in limbo
cursed with good intentions
I taste sour
even in the sweetest kiss
fight fire with fire
without stopping
to drop and roll

I kill time with kindness
assume the fatal position
where the sun don’t shine

in my prime
can barely muster
gentle hurricanes

nobody reads me right
especially my profile
here’s the whole story
one-hundred-forty
shadows or less

    We must always keep trying. Remember we are only guaranteed the “pursuit of happiness”.
