In The Trenches

Contributed by MoonlitAngel on Monday, 27th July 2020 @ 11:33:04 PM in AEST
Topic: EmotionalPoetry

I have been sitting in the trenches
itís hard to get a good nightís sleep in here
when youíre broken down
and pulled apart
surely you know my heart, it wrenches
I hide it but it doesnít disappear
so I guess you found
a place to start

but you came flying in so fast
like a train screaming on its tracks
you try to make it better
love, I canít be unfettered
I donít need you to fix it
could you just try to listen?

Iím balancing on breaking branches
up in treetops; you get used to it though
itís been years in here
on nimble toes
you donít need to turn flames to ashes
I didnít ask you to slay my shadows
love, just be right here
and keep me close

you could have asked me what Iíd like
avoided white hot lightning strikes
could you ask me how I feel?
is my heart not made of steel?
could you want me at your side?
am I your raging landslide?

Iíve gotten pretty good at this, dear
storms keep coming, and I still persevere
I face every fear
yeah Iím still here

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. ©
