Still (A Quadrille)

Still,
I believe you’ll triumph
even though
the torture
still
continues unabated.

What are
the magic words,
the black market
black magic
to still
your raging wildfire
of sadness
and wholesale
emotional immolation?

I just wish
your plans
for your
threatened suicide
would
still.

  1. I am crazy about the second stanza, especially "your raging wildfire" and "wholesale emotional immolation."

  2. Looking for that magic might distract some from their sadness enough to find it.

  4. Very powerful words Buddah. Suicide is a powerful subject. Life can deal some hard blows. I hope they find a softer landing and a rebound
