About the Poem

This poem was written in collaboration. Two close friends attempting poetry after a red wine and a discussion on life.

Distant Heart

Flowing spirit takes control
Leading me astray.
Distorting all my thoughts.
Emotions runaway.

Why do I perform
Upon life's envious stage?
Is it all a game?
A dance within a cage?

Am I full of anger?
Torn and insecure
Not knowing good from bad
Some inborn fatal flaw?

Pain from pleasure haunts me.
Guilt drives away the glow.
The world screams lessons at me
And yet I still don’t know.
