The Slam: Slammables


by anglefish, elsewhere

Sometimes I wonder

if it is not happiness that I look for

but peace

peace, ever elusive...

restlessness burns like fire

through my veins, my blood

I can feel it

in the tips of my fingers

within my heart

through my core

pulsing, pounding

but never



Author's Note:


Mm... What to say, what to say...
I kind of suck at thinking up titles. So, apologies for that.

Shoddy titles aside, thanks for reading :)

(Ay, I think I'm starting to get used to this. Maybe. A little.)

Thank you so much!

[Confession: um... I actually kind of hate the smell of coffee, so I've never tried
drinking it, but I'll pretend I know what you're talking about?? :) Also, having parentheses inside parentheses looks kind of strange to me, hence brackets. I'm totally not weird or anything. :D]
