Written about the psychological emotional upheaval that is part of brain injury caused off-the-wall and out of control emotions.

Brainstorm

I am speechless.
Words are unspoken.
Regrets unexpressed,
and suffering unresolved.

Why couldn't we have met
before loaded with such baggage
that damages love
and makes being so difficult.

To be so broadsided by superfluous remarks
that rage and pain become my name
and suffering without understanding
is the course of our day,
doesn't make sense
and isn't resolved
by love and understanding.

You ask me to pray,
saying there is no other way
out of this madness.

I think that I might
to stop this endless parade
of emotions, and suffering
without will or reason,
but I am not encouraged that light
is here to be found
