"You want to escape the confusion that you see before you. I tell you, you will never be able to escape the outer confusion unless, and until, you have escaped the inner confusion. And the inner confusion is your continuous doubt-indulgence." - Sri

How can this be human
To feel this tearing inside
A burning that devours my heart
And feasts on my soul
How can this be normal
To be consumed by utter pain
For tears to be like acid down my cheeks
Is this all there really is
A constant emptiness, a yearning
One that has no remedy
Where is the cure for the animal inside
The one that rips at my innards
Inflicting discomfort by the second
Where is the freedom for this rage
An anger that pushes at my throat
Screams to be set free
How much longer can I breathe
Suffocating here in this cage
The air around me pressures my heart
Causing me to wonder
How much longer will it beat to “love”?

The author's comments:
How frustrating is it when "love" doesn't work out?
This is me venting about a certain situation that couldn't become more tangled and irritating if it tried.
