Poetry Corner

Poetry Beatnik Trying to Purge what hurts
But I can't find the cause
Only the symptoms

Trying to Purge what's inside
But I am afraid
That doing that
Will erase everything else
With it

Trying to Purge this pain
And coming across roadblock
after roadblock
after roadblock
Of why I can't

And I am afraid of losing myself
to myself.
