drowning in my brain


At this moment. I am rubber. Stretched to my limits. Ready to pop. Let me deflate, let all the air rush out of me, turn me into a lifeless outside. Ready to burst. But no.
God says -- no.

    WELCOME FRIEND ~ Thanks for your first Poem ~ which expresses ~ very graphically ~ how a lot of us feel ~ and certainly felt when we were TEENS ~ Ready to BURST ! We are like balloons and we go into overload every day until we reach "Bursting Point" There is a "cri de coeur" in you poem ~ "Don't let me BURST ~ please GOD ~ let me DEFLATE ~ AMEN" I agree ~ when a balloon bursts ~ or a human being goes into melt down that is the end ! But a deflated BALLOON can be reinflated and be a thing of beauty again ~ we all love Balloons ! Your mention of GOD is very interesting ! On my own I would have burst years ago ~ BUT ~ I believe in GOD and in return he fills me with His Holy Spirit who controls my life and stops me from "over-inflating and bursting" ~ AMEN Thanks for sharing ~ Yours BRIAN (UK) Pl;ease check my Poems ~ Thanks B.
