Is Survival Enough?

He can’t remember


The attractive teacher


Blasted through

The closet door


With passionate rage

Burning like sulfur

From her sockets


His breath

Taken away

From the sucker punch


He finds comfort

In the violent reaction


He gets carried away

By his daydreams


But he cannot

Run from his subconscious


He is sure

His lust for pain

Had everything to do with it


Going back to bed

Is not an option


He is going to have to

Deal with the fact

That while awake


His life is

Without suffering
