felt too much

those long years & years

of being highly strung


pitched to eleven

I felt everything

piercing like hot wire

there behind the eyes

all over my scalded body

my emotions had yet

to acquire a layer of thick skin

get dulled by life

the repetition of pain

fall in love out of love

rinse repeat

trust another get burned

rinse repeat

& nobody got it

I needed medication

of some soft love

to ease the years of transition

between easy boy

& bitter hardened man

that this unceasing pain created

not hammer blows

but care to level out

that harsh living between highs & lows

dizzy peaks sharp troughs

help this yelping cat

booze helped

& the healing herb

& time

time will always deaden anything

including life
