Catharsis

As I fell, I shrieked the word
not once, nor twice, but thrice.

"Catharsis! Purge me! Catharsis!"
And all layers were unveiled
To reveal the molten terror
Hidden beneath the surface,
Absorbing the unwary traveler
Reaching out a helping hand.
Silencing the primal rage
Infecting the inner being,
So that all that remains

are the scattered pieces
of my catharsis.

Ghost of Heino
My Sir, I adore thee
and your woven balm
caressing just that part of my brain
