My newest adventure is underway. It has lead me to take up residency in a new blog,

9 The Storm Within

An eerie calm settles over
my exterior like an armored shell.
Unbeknownst to those nearby
a switch has been thrown
so that only I know
how the irrational thoughts
rattle inside my head,
course throughout me,
and threaten to mar
my external presence.

I have, unfortunately, missed the passed two weeks of Three Word Wednesday.  Things seem to be absolutely crazy lately, but I didn't want to let another week go by....  So here is my contribution to Three Word Wednesday [3WW=>calm, know, rattle].  


  1. I can relate to the irrational thoughts rattling...nice title post, the storm within ~

  2. Yes, those irrational thoughts can definitely mar our external presence!

  3. You have to be so close to someone to know what they are thinking. Even then some secrets are still hidden...thankfully.

  4. oy the exterior def is affected by what is going on inside...and though we cant always see it, it even tually finds its way out....

  5. Irrational thoughts can sometimes lead to interesting outcomes, that turn out to be ...... right!

  6. Some people are experts at hiding the storm raging within--excellent job capturing this dynamic.

  7. Clever isn't it, how we can fool most people into thinking that all is well, even if we are falling apart inside and going slightly crazy.
    Very nice poem

  8. this is a great oem to show disconnect, well done.
