Stormy Journey


“You must stay drunk on writing so reality cannot destroy you.” ~ Ray Bradbury

Stormy Journey

Old tormented mind fastens thrice around failing rudder, gripped tightly, clinging to a solitary vision, on the tempestuous seas of insanity.

Anxious fragmented thoughts gather to navigate safe passage towards calmer waters, mind firmly anchored on storied horizon as a rain soaked determined face boldly faces the storm, cursing to change the weather.

Two pale gaunt lanterns stubbornly flicker on into the tumultuous headwinds of gnashing thoughts, resolved to continue the journey, else the fathoms of the deep await should he drop his pen.

About this Poem: The Poem was inspired by a quote from Ray Bradbury, “You must stay drunk on writing so reality cannot destroy you.” – The Poem is my personal testament to the truth of these words…the need to keep writing, or the establishments reality will consume me to my death…I fight on…
