"Firebrand of Doubt"

by Jeph Johnson


Please drag me out of bed and tell me what she said

For she's still in my head filling me with dread

Stuck all weekend here looking through the mirror

Without her to endear I've fear itself to fear

Exploding toxic themes detonate pipe dreams

Igniting evil schemes that smother self esteem

It's just a fantasy; her still here with me

But all that I can see in my mind's periphery

Is her smile so serpentine gleaming hope it seems

Euphoric sadness means I must go to extremes

But no one understands or lends a helping hand

Except the firebrand of doubt; my biggest fan
