The words are ringing in my ears today
Blinding my eyes with tears
Taking me down to that place
Where the back of my throat is all I can feel
Cryptic though in clarification
Boxing my brain again
Revealing my pain again
Time has no bearing on this burden
Riddles, reasons overlap seasons
Oblivious to wasted time
Moments lost, never to find
Hope dangles on a thread
Frayed and frazzled in my head
Precious moments terminate
As stubborn hearts still beat
whew…felt piece…the emotion comes through strong…terminate is like and exclamation point…ouch….
Yikes, you had me second guessing the use of that word but I will leave it as it is. The “ouch” is really the feeling I was going for anyways. Thanks so much for your comments! 🙂
I definitely know what you mean about those lost moments. Once they pass they are forever gone.
I think you just articulated a migraine headache. — the language definitely poetic, the pain and the loss of time, of living, of being palpable. Well done!
Thank you 🙂
I appreciate your interpretation and comments.
ugh yes… we know it’s wasted time but we just don’t manage to change something… that first step to forgive is often the hardest…
Yes, for some it really can be difficult.
Thanks for your comments. 🙂
WOW! This is poignant and powerful and should be read aloud! 🙂
This comment means a lot to me. Thank you so much, Melanie!
So many times this past year I felt or have seen this felt. You put words to it. Thank you. Powerful.
It’s sad to think that others can relate to the feeling, but relieving at the same time. Thanks for your comments and for taking the time to read my poetry.
I can feel the pain, an intense piece.
Thanks so much for your comments.
Powerful – “boxing in my brain again.” That about says it for some times on this journey we call life.
Yes, sometimes it does….
