Slither

A fictitious face.

A muscle ache,

with each smile.

Debilitating the soul with no disgrace, God, don’t let this effect my child.

 

It slowly slithers into life.

That evil little devil!

Consuming the soul with one huge bite. Taking us to unknown levels.

 

Hidden stomach knots.

So twisted I can be…so I’ve learned.

Oh, How I once was….so hot I burned.

Oh, how the tables turn.

 

How I envy thee.

Mother, Father, Sisters and Brothers.

Being his She,

Showing the world how your lovers.

 

A numbing venom for the love of “life”. Making it harder to fight it.

A funny thing, that life.

Some can’t handle it

And prefer to bite it.

 

It’s grip constricting and choking,

Consuming the soul more so than body.

I will keep it from showing,

Escaping to my world of being naughty.

 

Oh how I imagine a life that’s not mine.

Hoping one day it will manifest.

Telling everyone I’m just fine.

I “really” do love the sunshine!

Acting normal just like the rest.

How are you? I’m just fine!

At my best.

 

A fictitious face.

A muscle ache, with each smile.

Debilitating the soul with no disgrace, God, don’t let this effect my child.

Just wrote about how I tend to hide the extreme sadness that loneliness brings.

I’m not terrible looking. I once was considered a social butterfly and always had people around. Somewhere that changed. I know now that I have had close friends that have gone through the same experience. Never told a soul.  I have no family. But I have my daughter. And I hope to fight it for her.  And hope she isn’t affected in the future.

Heart into Heart

Light into Light
Darkness into Darkness
Mind into Mind
Soul into Soul

Feelings hidden
Emotions concealed
Fortress after fortress
Defence of the heart

Shrouded thoughts
Veil of secrecy
Game after game
Unknown to the world

Twisted and tortured
Desperately seeking
Time after time
Wings of refuge

Light into Light
Darkness into Darkness
Self into Self
Heart into Heart

regarding how to interpret “Heart into Heart”

I wrote “Heart into Heart” during a period of time in December 2005 when I was feeling very small and alone in this world. I would go and watch a sad movie all on my own and then come home, sit on my bed and look out through the bedroom window while listening to sad songs. I don’t quite know where my loneliness came from, but I guess I woke up one day, realized that my best friend had died three years ago, that people were losing their humanity, and that I had given up trying to make a difference because the world couldn’t care less. Since that period, I have recovered from my utter depression, but still feel that dull ache of loneliness on a regular basis. The poem is generally free for the readers to interpret it and all the better if they can identify themselves with that state of despair and alienation. I just want to let all those who read the poem know that they’re not alone in feeling lonely and that they loneliness only serves to make them stronger emotionally and spiritually. I hope that all the lonely souls out there will be able to fill the void spaces in them like I managed to, but never forget the tug of loneliness at the heartstrings so that they can look back and see how far they’ve come and how much they’ve grown and matured.
