Dark thoughts

Thoughts are the shadows of our feelings- always darker, simpler and emptier.

Friedrich NietzscheDSC04371In wishful thinking I indulge

Dreaming of what I can’t divulge

Thoughts that boundaries explore

Of societal norms, pushing for more

Skirting scandalous domain

With power to inflict pain

Thoughts that when transformed

Into words can drop some bombs

Thoughts that are best confined

To remote corners of my mind

How would things be, I wonder

If all our thoughts buried deep under

Could find tangible expression

How it would cause a sensation

The power of the mind unleashed

Could threaten our lives’ fabric indeed

The filters that are set by us

Are meant as protection from chaos

Chaos that the world would fall in

If each of us decided to listen

To the clamor of thoughts that reside

In the recesses where our demons hide

We battle our minds, we agonize

Voicing unfiltered thoughts is unwise

Dreams pitch in with their solutions

When conscious thought has no resolution

When we wake up, rationality returns

Banishing dark thoughts to hidden demons.
