I want to scream.

(And break my voice with jagged edges...)

...Get down on my knees and pray,
just stay there till I'm old and grey,
until I feel life fade away...


[...just wither down into the ground,
and give myself to all the roses.]

I'm broken in with all the weeping,
It hurts the sky I hear it screaming.
Is the world still melting round me,
or is it God has somehow found me?
{Lost within this painful dream,
where once reality had been. }


I feel it still, his soul is tearing,
I pray to God to hear his cries,
And though he says he's hardly bleeding
I see the pain still in his eyes.

Sweetie .. I only wish my somethings could be more of your
nothings !!

This was painful, at best, to read. (even moreso the second time
'round --though I know not why).

I love every single part of this .. as it is so very different from anything I've
read .. but the reference to giving yourself to the roses .. I can't get that
out of my head. I feel that so deeply ~

You have always had the ability to capture emotion in the most
incredible way. Exceptional hun. I am truly inspired!

*hugs*

Sparky,

It pains me to read this and picture you...

But I did both...

You definitely are a poet and a half...
Maybe if you had no pain you wouldn’t
Have anything to write about…

Love ya Sis

Excellent verses!

Your 'nothing' portrays a clear picture of the darkness and pain that you are going through. I sincerely hope that you get out of it. Being 'broken in with all the weeping', will not make it stop, but only bring on more of it.

May you be at peace with yourself soon. It would be a shame to have such a wonderful poet suffer so, even if it does bring forth such profound words.

I'll say this ... perhaps you came with nothing ....

But you left us with something Phabulous !!!

...."Get down into the ground....give myself to the roses." On the positive side one could equate that phrase with ...die to self so one can be found alive in Christ....Know matter how long we are on our knees God is always there; and He never loses track of us, although we don't alwalys keep track of Him.

Well done, makes you think and reflect

Will

Sweetheart it pains me so to read such heart breaking words coming from your pen.
You think you came up with nothing hun, but you sure left your reading with an emotionally packed masterpiece that pulls at the heart strings. I wished somehow I could take away your pain and the tears that fall from your eyes and replace them with laughter, joy & happiness. May your pain subside and your heart heal real soon my sweet & dear friend.
Much love , hugs n prayers to you PhillyGirl~

Well the only criticism I could ever offer on such an amazing piece is that this should have been left under "Emotional Poetry" because WOW the gut wrenching emotion. I mean WOW! So sad, tragic, real and a deep river of blood has been poured in this work. Wonderful job dear poet! The poem had me all the way, but the final stanza simply floored me! AMAZING!


Bravo!

only a poet can bring something from nothing; this one has a sinister edge to it; I really like... fan-blooming-tastic; as always;

A dream is a doubled edge sw o rd. Sometimes our dreams are worse then our life and other times they are an escape to a better life. This poem speaks of a lo t of pain....well written.
