A Life Oblique

Contributed by MoonlitAngel on Sunday, 1st September 2019 @ 04:50:40 AM in AEST
Topic: selfstruggles

I have been a puff of smoke
just drifting
try to speak but I just choke
sand sifting

do you know what itís like to live under the clearest, bluest sky youíve ever seen
while the darkest storm cloud roils over your head
day after day after day, after
all youíve done and all youíve tried and all the reminders being shoved right in your face
while everyone just tells you itíll be fine
time after time after time

so I am a distant shore
hard to reach
out here bracing myself for
a life oblique

I know what itís like to know you gave up on the only chance you might ever have
while keeping your memories buried so deep
year after year after year, because
youíll never let a perfect moment in time get touched by a single speck of dust
so you keep that box up on a shelf so high
and you never take it down

there are words for emptiness
but they just
canít convey the heaviness
when youíre crushed
so you carry it around
close the door on breaking down

You pour yourself onto the page and I see so much going on. I hope this is more of a vent of a fluid situation that will soon right itself. But if not I really hope you find or convince that one person whom will truly understand you and give you relief. Great imagery and metaphors.

While every care is taken to ensure the general sites content is family safe, our moderators cannot be in all places; all the time.

Poetry is much like a great photo, a single "moment in time" capturing many feelings and emotions. Yet, they are very alive; creating stirrings within the readers who form visual "pictures" of the expressed emotions within the Poem. ©
