My moods reflect my thoughts
and decide they'd rather
take a hasty stroll
instead of hurting inside
the confines of a pensive soul.
make failed attempts
at climbing castles of fortitude
only to drown into welcoming whirlpools
of wisely tempered forgiveness.
Verse overflows from the scaffolds
of emotion let loose
by a heart willing to scatter
all that holds it together -
rusted reins of ravaging sensation.
