I write and I scream,
and every time I dream,
there is something more to say to you.
I know that I have:
Razor-sharp thorns,
red, venomous leaves,
and blue poison berries.
What can I say?
I was grown this way,
and now youíre growing into me.
I was like Cain
and you were like Abel,
always willing to sacrifice everything.
Maybe Iím not enough,
but I have something that is.

Before people figured out
how to kill each other,
love is all that there was.
You canít fit my love
into a capsule
that limits space and time.
You can break it down,
into a concept of an idea,
itís still too large to swallow.
Itís bigger than you
and itís damn sure bigger than me.
I want to take this love like a stone,
just like Cain,
and smash your skull.

"And Cain went out from the presence of the LORD, and dwelt in the land of Nod, on the east of Eden."

I Write and I Scream
This one carried me at frenetic pace to the violent and breathless conclusion. Real rhythm to this one, real movement. I can imagine it screamed, actually, during the heat of an argument. This is a love poem, gritty and bloody, dramatic, dynamic, unpleasant. So emotionally intense it's untrue. One of your best I reckon, woke me up this one. Cheers.

Still too large to swallow
This was excellent. Tempestuous in every sense of the word. I devoured this one.
