The rat and the piece of cheese!


Gnawing me
tiny, tiny
as a mouse to a piece of cheese
small, insistently
inside me

as if I had
sin
as if I'd blame
as if I was wrong...

there... aching...
trying to annoy me
not letting me sleep

gnawing me...
the rat and the piece of cheese
inside my chest

and Iam bursting
this feelings
here outside.

    Prick of conscious
    Gnawing slowly
    And itches heart
    with sleepless nights
    Thoughts of hope
    will wipe our sins
    And pray God
    To clear out debts (Report) Reply

    Thank you Thomas. No doubt, it could be made up. That would be a good joke. I enjoyed the pizza. :) (Report) Reply

    A great crisis is knawing at your psyche. Until some important issue is resolved sleep will be almost impossible.
    Perhaps if you sit down and face the issue headon you may be able to come to terms with it. (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

I heard the bells on Christmas day
Their old familiar carols play,
And wild and sweet the words repeat
Of peace on earth, good will to men.
