etre moins volatile

mostly there, generally elsewhere.
In a dark hour, tasting the Earth.
As I lay on my couch in the muffled night, and the rain lashed my window, And my forsaken heart would give me no rest, no pause and no peace,	 Though I turned my face far from the wailing of my bereavement…. Then I said: I will eat of this sorrow to its last shred, I will take it unto me utterly, I will see if I be not strong enough to contain it…. What do I fear? Discomfort? How can it hurt me, this bitterness?

In a dark hour, tasting the Earth.

As I lay on my couch in the muffled night, and the rain lashed my window,
And my forsaken heart would give me no rest, no pause and no peace,
Though I turned my face far from the wailing of my bereavement….
Then I said: I will eat of this sorrow to its last shred,
I will take it unto me utterly,
I will see if I be not strong enough to contain it….
What do I fear? Discomfort?
How can it hurt me, this bitterness?
