The Rollercoaster Ride

The Rollercoaster FBO

Goff James, The Rollercoaster Ride, 2018

The Rollercoaster Ride

In silence
There is such pain
When panic strikes and
Logic’s lost
The troubled mind ferments
With every
Quivering devastating quake
Emotions erupting
Fire flow as
Sleeping phantoms rise
Upon the rollercoaster
Titled with eloquence
FEAR
Writ in
Letters furnace festered

UP and DOWN

DOWN and UP

Round and round
And round
Unceasing
Thoughts derailed
Worries flooding
Gargantuan
Grotesque
Convulse
For what reason
WHY WHY WHY

 

Imprisoned
Tormented
Shackled to
Cracking concrete walls
Captive of the self
Burning dreads ignited
Oozing nightmares
Bursting echo louder
WHY WHY WHY
Riding on the
Runaway rollercoaster

 

With knotted knuckles
Iced white
Razor edged blood drained
Mortal shell disembodied
To the rattling handrail
Cling in breathless desperation
Thrust bruised from
Side to side
Racing rushing
Forwards
Uncontrollable
Trapped
Within tortuous
Never ending loops

 

STOP STOP STOP
The word is
Screamed and yelled and
Thrice repeated
LOUDER LOUDER LOUDER
LOUDER STILL
STOP STOP STOP

 

Terrorised
Scared
Slam the brakes on
Screams the frenzied rider
Nonexistent
Racing rushing
Forwards
Unrestrained
JUMP JUMP JUMP
ESCAPE
JUMP JUMP JUMP
Heart a pounding
Pumping faster
NO ESCAPE
No reverse

 

Forwards forwards
Forwards only
Helter skelter
Ever increasing
ONWARDS
ON ON ON
Speeding
Ever faster
Within the
Compressing
Circles of the mind
Going nowhere
Always returning
To the same
Oft frequented place

 

In a sudden stilling moment
A calmness unexplained
Returns
Soft and silken smooth
Like a welcoming
Flickering candle
Burning in the darkness
Of a moonless night
Comforting and warming
The horror overcome

 

On disembarkation
From each and every journey
Recall
Pained or joyous
Who and what
When and where and why
Encountered
And with every recovered
Gentle breath
Recite
TODAY’S HURT
TOMORROW HEALS
Onwards
Onwards
On together
With greater understanding
Repairing and rebuilding
Wounded
Hopes and dreams.
