What you will find here

This is a place to examine plans filled with hope; plans which promise a refuge from chaos; plans which will shape our futures. Veterans with and without PTSD, Pentecostal Presbyterians, Adjudicated Youth, and Artists-Musicians-Writers: I write what I know. ~~~ Evelyn

Only Laughter

by Evelyn Rainey

Only Laughter

Darkness evades direct thought.

Fear trembles and sadness concedes

The emptiness; futility.

Constricting circles on a broken glass,

Shattered by a single shot

That left only laughter.

I must fight this prevailing madness

That crept so seductively from the night

And now crushes me in her hateful breast.

The scream that never quite escapes,

Lies buried beneath the seething teeth

Which gnash and snarl

Respectfully veiled from those

Who lovingly stab

And never contemplate.
