The body of a woman
The soul of a child
The heart of a human
The will of something wild

Alone with my thoughts                      
my mind tends to roam
to all the lessons I was taught
and about a place called home

I think about a time
when I was small
walking a think line
and having no one to call

There were highs
and there were lows
the desprate cries
all of lifes blows

There were cries in the night
that no one heard
The scars out of sight
Wishing for the wings of a bird

The memories haunting
tearing me from within
The voices taunting
To release would be sin

In the body of a woman
all locked up tight
feelings of being inhuman
screaming silently in the night



 Butterflies don't cry
Are they more blessed than I?

Butterflies must cry ...
for I heard and felt the tears in this.
*HUGS* to the woman in the body
and the soul of the child.
Love to you ... ~*Marge*~

I think we have all felt this way from time to time...like a child, frightened and alone. You've portrayed that feeling well with this one

this touches me butterfly... so sad but emotionally perfect...its perfectly "human" to feel this way when you've been hurt...
i know you find the healing i do in your writing...
take care, jm


 Now for me some words come easy
But I know that they don't mean that much
Compared with the things that are said when lovers touch
You never knew what I loved in you
I don't know what you loved in me
Maybe the picture of somebody you were hoping I might be

J.M.
I thought you might understand this and was hoping I would hear from you.  Thank you so much for your kind words and for your input.  I have found freedom in my writing that I never thought would come.

Nate,
Thank you

This is truly moving.....Saddness

 There are two kinds of pedestrians...the quick and the dead. Drive it like you stole it.

Mete,
Thank you for reading, and yes although it would seem that reliving pain would hurt...sometimes it hurts to heal.

Suthern,
Thank you
