World of Pain

Bottomless well
spring of eternal

where does it all come from
passion’s flowering tendrils
anger’s burgeoning crags
roots deeper than Atlantis
tempered by pain

Surface calm masks
mirrored chaos
awaiting only stimuli
designed by life to
awaken choice

surfing the apocalypse
we smile through the smooth
unrippled water
grimacing into stormclouds
the tempest roiling
surface calm destroyed
revealing the ugliness

Salty tears become the ocean
merging into infinite sorrow
a world of pain realized
