Deep Within

Deep within the soul
the silent longing is there,
painfully, woefully stubborn,
making it hard to breathe
or take a deep breath.

A sensation of “reaching”
there, down deep, holding on
to the mind’s most fleeting thought,
discarding even love, for a
brief answer to agony.

How best to resolve this
indisputable emotion, that
centers itself into a pit of desire,
not for love, but for a brief
sharing of bidding well.

I know the answer, for
it has always been within me,
but there are times where I fail
to impart a sense of urgency,
and the failure pains me.

It is somewhat like a
lonesome strain of one violin,
a lingering note, reaching out for
one other to hear, understand,
beautiful in loneliness.

For to share so much
so that another is touched
by the beauty of some words,
this lingering feeling still
doesn’t let me breathe.

Sunshine,
Agree with DreanEvil, a wonderful piece of introspection and well done. This one is a keeper, something you can always take out and read and reflect on. *L*

Selfreflection: to see your true self, understand and accept, whether you like it or not. The hardest thing ever ! Thanks for sharing this.
