Sheer Velocity

A scream is building
somewhere deep within
making my head spin
with its immensity

and the intensity
of this emotion
this aftermath
of blind devotion

seeks to overwhelm
my sanity
for what can I believe
when you're not here?

The dams are bursting
for nothing can withstand
the endless reprimands
of your self-recrimination

while the volume of the pressure
that has never yet been measured
seeks its outlet here
I feel it drawing near
within the night

so I seek to speak
the words you keep so deep within
yet I am lost within the spin
of sheer velocity
building in intensity

while still it seems
I will not be redeemed
until you scream
