I'm cold inside and all is numb,
I try and yet the tears won't come.
All fear is gone and feelings fled,
Tis like inside I'm all but dead.

In days gone by, held in firm grip,
Emotions that the scales would tip.
That I'd be lost within the flood,
My tears were shed as if like blood.

This numbness is a blessing, Yes?
I wish I knew, what is your guess?
What does it mean? Please, do you know?
How do I let my feelings show?

Am I insane? My mind has gone?
How can I deal with pain so long?
It drives me to the brink of death,
And yet I take just one more breath.

To dump this trash is what I must.
Tell me the way before I bust!
This is my plea, this is my woe,
Please, tell me now which way to go.

As well as this is written Marilyn, it makes me very sad   I wish I had the answers for you. All I can say is that I'm here for you and love you my friend.

Marilyn, there's always only one way to go....up. Gee, sounds so easy doesn't it? Your poem is very sad. Hopefully there will be a happy one soon.

This is so sad. Nope, you haven't lost your mind. I think it's just one of those stages we grow through.....and just think....you have all us wacky wonderful people here to cheer you on!!  

Great poem, Marilyn!

That's a beautiful way to put your feelings
I hope you find direction...

Beautifully written Marilyn, yet so very sad.

I too can relate to this one, Marilyn.  Deeply sad and wonderfully done.

Like a gust of wind, ne'er trapped in a snare,
Like a lotus blossom, ne'er sprinkled by water,
Let me, like a unicorn, in solitude roam.*~ Hymn Of Buddha
