2 Methods to Soothe Raging Emotions: Rage On

i've done a lot with music lately.  or at least it feels that way.  i suppose that says quite a bit about my state of mind as of late.  as i've expressed before music has a way of mellowing me...releasing the tension...settling my emotions....  it so easy for me to get lost in the rhythm.  it has a way of massaging every tiny little nerve and frayed edge that threatens to unravel within me.  sometimes i wonder where i'd be without it.  or maybe if i would be....

so forgive me as i once again by homage to my dear friend, music...

the rush is so intense
a hard Class VI
pummeling from every direction
sucking everything deep down
into its murky waters
the will to fight
drains with every beat
of a raging heart
there is one lifeline left
a magically entity
intent on fighting fire with fire
water with water
air with air
earth with earth
with the twist of a knob
it rages forth
coursing through every nerve
running along every frayed edge
colliding head on with each crest
another tiny twist of the knob
and the music rages on
