    Silence, please.

    The emptiness within
    portrays no distractions nor thoughts.
    only utter silence.

    a deep breathe revealed at last;
    next comes the insanity,
    with a mind never at rest.

    a wrecking brain with hurtful thoughts,
    never at ease, only circles to come.

    what should i do?
    how do i overcome this mess?
    when does it end?

    The time is now,
    to go back to my rest
    and put myself to silence.

    eyes shut,
    ears covered
    a deep breath within;
    waiting to be revealed again.

    This was really good, I really enjoyed it.

    Deep into that darkness peering, long I stood there, wondering, fearing, doubting, dreaming dreams no mortal ever dared to dream before. ~ Edgar Allan Poe

    It speaks of or I say derogatively, this vomits ideas that need to be poured out.

    “Those who seek to satisfy the mind of man by hampering it with ceremonies and music and affecting charity and devotion have lost their original nature””

    “If water derives lucidity from stillness, how much more the faculties of the mind! The mind of the sage, being in repose, becomes the mirror of the universe, the speculum of all creation.

    Love is an un tamed force. When we try to control it, it desrtoys us. When we try to imprison it, it enslaves us. When we try to understand it, it leaves us feeling lost and confused
