Headspin

A torrent of dislocated thought
Emotional avalanche
Cascading fears
And a river of tears
The desire to escape
Elude
Avoid
Is tempered by
This insatiable hunger
To educate and be educated
Knowledge is power
Knowledge is fear
Understanding the danger
And this source of aching paranoia
Chased and chaste
By the weight of comprehending
That all as is,
Is all as is not
A trove of reality
Fertile
And uncensored
Sobers like a corrosive balm
On tender, tender skin
