Quiet Riot

25 Jun

A minor rush.
The smallest push.

I’m still standing -
I’m still here,
carrying things you will never know of

… it’s for the best.

Me.

The quietest riot.

(c) 2008.

      I think, at the time, it was for the best. Quietly building up strength until it can be unleashed. Thank you for visiting, I appreciate it.

    Good poem, I interpret it as carrying burdens that we can’t share with others. Very interesting

    Carrying a burden that is too large to share is also a burden too large to carry alone.
    The quietest riot–awesome.

      “Carrying a burden that is too large to share is also a burden too large to carry alone.”

      Sums it up perfectly, thanks for reading!

    Powerful and haunting poem I love it! Sometimes we have to keep things in but usually it eats us up alive

    Yeah, we all know that carrying stuff inside for too long has consequences, but personally I like the fuck you tone of the piece. “I’m still standing, I’m still here, carrying things you will never know of”.
    Quiet and powerful. Thanks very much for sharing it.
