Lately I am a storm

a rumble of grouchy

a flash of anger

a clash of overwhelming conflicting emotions

and at the end of it all a torrential flooding of sadness


there is no continuity to me anymore

no natural ebb and flow

I am a swirl of violent winds

and tumultuous waves


I’ve lost my steadiness

my internal rhythm

and now find myself

a simple




If I knew this is what existence was

after the absence of you

I would have trained

like Bruce Wayne with Ra’s Al Ghoul

finding a purpose for the endless pain and anger

constantly swirling in heart and head

perhaps I would have found

my inner Batman

in the wake of the destruction

of all I’ve ever known and loved
