I Am A Torrent

I am a torrent. Inside me is wind

And rain and all manner of manic hell.

My mind seizes my heart to bind up.

My heart defies all my mind’s rationale.

I long to believe what I did before

Doubt and annoyance told me their whole tale.

If God is real then where can he be? Or

Perhaps the real problem is I am hell?

Pleasure and pain turned to dust in my hands.

Immutable fantasies where I fell

Remind once me of fair circumstance:

I am a torrent. Inside me, it swells.
