I don’t only write about romance, love and sex. This is a piece I wrote recently just pouring out my feelings …. it’s raw and unedited …. a first draft, if you will… but I am sure someone reading this will understand. It is a simple poem, not as lyrically diverse as I usually write, but I was just trying to get my feelings out.
Sometimes a smile is hiding the tears threatening to spill;
Cheeks beaming grins the dam that holds back the flood –
Just barely. My soul trembles with the pain
as heart rent from heart, as promises dash upon the rocks
and relationship’s wreck sinks under possibilities’ sea.
I cling to reason’s driftwood, seeking sanity’s shore
But tides and torrential tornadoes strike
And pull me deeper into desperation’s inky darkness.
Seeking salvation, I cry out for help….
A lonely heart drifting, being carried where it will by mighty tides.
