Tendrils  of courage wither and die,
While spikes of uncertainty grow without my
      tenders of thoughtlessness whimpers of pain,
Stab my soul again and again.
While outwardly none,
Shall ever know,
Why sleep eludes this tender soul,
Guilt unmeasureable,
Pain with no release,
Tears that drown the lifes flow of blood,
Yet none shall ever see.

The shadows wrap around me,
As if none would see,
What this life has brought to me,
In my own little private hell,
The silence that keeps me going on,
Is also killing me,
And yet through out this lifetime,
There's no one here to see,
They think I'm merely needing,
A change of scenery,
And yet I think what's really needed,
Is a total change from me.

As I doth cry out to the lonely souls,
Upon this fettered world,
To hear mine pleas of restlessness,
And what this pain has killed,
Revenge of the sweetest kind,
Is being bought at my expense,
And yet here I stand,
Taking it all....


With no one upon whom to vent.

Poetry is such a good way to vent and this place is the best...with people that understand.  Very sad and heart-felt poem!

WindRider~
This is pretty darned awesome !
'And yet I think what's really needed,
Is a total change from me.'

Introspect usually produces retrospect
which creates the effect of seeking change.

Just a little 'Marge-ism' gleaned along
life's highways.

Incredible..it's almost if you've ripped open my own soul, taken my feelings, and arranged them in a deeply moving manner.  Absolutely wonderful work here.

You've expressed some pretty intense sentiments here, WS.. Looks to me like poetry is a good way for you to vent...

This is a very moving piece of work. Your emotions are very evident and also very well expressed. I also enjoyed the work you left in response to "Alone Too Long" . Nice to have you aboard.

Thank you all for being so supportive.

And Poet... I'm glad someone does.  I'm not sure I do anymore.
