My mood; my ship of passage,
My sail; divinely possessed,
inspired, even.
To the sun, I may be mad-
to the moon, I am genius,
counting the tardy pace
of lingering moments
by the repercussions
of anguish.

My feelings; pitiable-
I struggle in vain
against the influence
of melancholy.

There is longing
that tears my heart
by the roots.
There is a dreadful sense
of solitude and agony
that thrill through
my cold, cold blood.
I have been raped
of my powers-
all but one-
that is to suffer.
I lay groaning
in agony,
with outstretched arms.
My thoughts are loose,
like dry sand,
falling through my fingers
upon being grasped.

I am little more than a statue
and then come the violent, tidal waves
of blood and breathlessness
that invade my very demeanor.

Maddening dreams
trouble my sleep-
I am awakened
by the voices
that call out my name.

I cannot muster
any amount of resistance.

I enter in to realization
with lies that kiss my lips,
finding that my soul
lives this listless life,
hating the day for its unbearable length
and hating the night for leading into the day.
Yet, like a catharsis,
each nightmarish horror or absurdity
enables me to better meet
a waiting morning,
in an undernourished and inhuman
sort of way.

Plainly, a bleak weariness of life-
I stay because
my body lacks the strength
to go.

And I wear the look
of a balanced thinker,
though I am far
from a picture of sanity.
So it is that I trod on,
my spirit somber and dim,
casting shadows over the images of things
and forming a dark tide.

My spirits seethe
in perpetual ferment,
eroded and consumed
without fever,
and send out their heat.
My power is more evident
in the landscapes of imagination-
that fire
where both smoke and flame
are united.
It is in this place
where I exist,
lost and alone,
without the understanding
of one who might take
the time.

Erin, where HAVE you been? You are sorely missed here. This poem is extremely well written and I hope it is not an accurate depiction of your feelings. If so, you have my hopes for reversal. Welcome back ....and please stay.

Erin wanted me to convey that she has not come back to the forums. She is having me post occasional pieces for her.

All of you here at Passions are all such wonderful people! Thank you for all these fabulous replies.... I am going to post some information about where I have been shortly, so if you want to know, keep an eye out for it! I'm not quite back home yet, but I get to visit from time to time. I thought that perhaps I would drop in for a bit. I will be home shortly. Thanks again for being there for me!

Sincerely,
Erin
