The Burden of Structure

The Burden Of Structure For The Artist

To bring but one pause

to the constant scream that plays in my thoughts,

that is all I ask.

Is peace so escapable?

So avoidable?

So unwanted?

I want to lay forth

and spew the excess realities

that burden me to this day.

Creation becomes an addiction,

there is no metaphor there.

I will stop this repetition,

for I envy the artists

for whom structure was no burden.
