Poetic Journey in Personal Discovery

Can’t Let Go…

image

Getting in touch with that pain,
The deep seated hurt which whispers
Remembrances upon raw ears.
Escape seems the only option,
So you seek it where you can.
No easement in your bereavement.
No comfort for your soul.
On fire with the unrelenting flames of sadness,
Waiting, biding time, wishing for the numbness
Humanity can never provide.
So you sit alone, and cry…

Seemingly endless tears
Threaten to submerge you in a watery abyss,
Which you prefer to living.
To float upon pains’ waves
In search of an island where you can stay.
Where memories of them
Aren’t tangibly all encompassing.
Void of the trinkets and images
Confined to frames.
The frames with illusive boundaries,
Unable to contain their essence,
False immortalizations
Once treasured and admired.

In time these feelings will subside?
One day I won’t be chained to this preoccupation?
Peace will return while I know breath?
Or will I continue to remain in this desolation?

May you look to God,
Comforter to the broken hearted.
I wish you peace for your soul,
And liberation from your despondence.
Time softens the anguish,
Believe what you cannot see
The hope of healing,
And lessening of your grief.

  1. Very vivid. Many of the lines will resonate with many.

    • While I appreciate the idea that people will relate to my poetry, in this case, I wish people didn’t have to. People’s pain and heartaches strangle my heart. Part of life, but that sense of hopelessness that sometimes takes a person’s will to fight… Tragic. Wish my message could have been filled with more positive sentiments, offer more positive light- it’s what came out. Thanks for reading and replying. Peace to you.
