The Search for Peace with Pen [from The Philosophical Verses (Vol. 2)]

The Search for Peace with Pen 

I never know what’ll happen 
when I let the page drink in the ink, 
a few more moments caught in time 
filled with what I feel and think, 
troubled seas crashing violent islands 
and me there on the brink 
strings of words that somehow matter 
and between us formed, a link. 

Absurdity risked and humanity shared 
out here off the ledge 
all of me shared with all of you, 
the smoothest slope to the hardest edge 
and some of the weight that’s mine to carry 
spilled to be heard and read 
searching for caring souls 
to help with these demons in my head. 

There are roads to travel 
that start right here 
and hopes they bring some ease, 
days that stretch from where the words begin 
and prayers for some release 
from the darkened thoughts that come at times 
and the fears that never seem to leave, 
so we meet right here 
with the pen 
on the page 
in search of a bit of peace.
