Household of Storms

Household  of Storms
(tag poem , unedited)

DreamsbyDay: .Household  of Storms
DreamsbyDay: .
DreamsbyDay: Below the surface,something , seething.,
DreamsbyDay: waits to penetrate the seeming calm
DreamsbyDay: Insidiously , patient- biding time
DreamsbyDay: as if, for it ,  the clock did not apply
DreamsbyDay: .
DreamsbyDay: The smiles and forced respectful words  remain
DreamsbyDay: while stagnant  air and attitides collide
DreamsbyDay: the sweaty scent as  nervous laughter fades
DreamsbyDay: and near eruptions  forced back down inside
DreamsbyDay: .
DreamsbyDay: Tip toe and whisper as the days turn cold
DreamsbyDay: despite the heat that bubbles in the blood
DreamsbyDay: existence so surreal as to be bold
DreamsbyDay: dams of pain for holding  feelings flood...
DreamsbyDay: .
DreamsbyDay: We gather  and we pray  over our food...
DreamsbyDay: pretending that we function in this mood
