Jekyll and Hyde

These words I must get out
Before they pile up in my head
Before Hyde takes Jekyll by the neck
And takes his life from him
Before the fall of ancient Rome
Spills barbarian me upon this life I love
These words must captured on printed page
Bars of electric fire between their strength and me
Just let me sleep

    Good reminder…I have words hiding in the recesses of my psyche…have to force them out. Don’t sleep, Mark…let the words out!
    I like the powerful imagery you have chosen. Good read.
