Life on Earth

sometimes
the world is maniacal
out of control 
labyrinthine
on a wheel
off the tracks
divergent

(eruptions spew obstructions) 

life's gray slime
settles
in your throat
turns to stone
stuffs your heart
black pitch drowning
sometimes
(it is beautiful)

This describes so perfectly the world today. It made me think of the eruption in Iceland...and the drama in my own life and how much I love to be alive despite all the craziness, and sometimes, even, because of it.

I love your writings.

@Curious George - thanks for reading. I agree with your comments, sometimes it is inside the awful, that we find the most beauty.

@Russ - I don't think I'm particularly deep....weird maybe.
