The topographical tribulations of transient hearts

May 28, 2018

1514 Map by Oronce Fine

drowning in the sea of sorrow
shipwrecked on the reefs of regret
stranded on the island of frustration
falling from the cliffs of expectation
crushed in the landslides of miscommunication
flailing in the quicksand of desperation
fevered in the jungles of fear
roasting in the desert of anger
frozen on the slopes of anxiety
wandering on the snow drifts of hopelessness
trapped in the ravines of grudge-holding
hanging from the precipice of judgement
starving on the tundra of silence
