I sit,
as darkness yields
to light,
nicotine coursing
through veins,
limbic spewed jumbled
messages leap
synaptic clefts,
unable to enter yet asleep,
the frontal lobe.
light steals through
cracks in blinds,
dances on the bedroom walls,
while thoughts so primitive
remain, animal thoughts,
clawing at the bone,
void of reason
full of needing
hungry  gnawing
prowling
discovering remains
of something lost,
exploring acrid air,
nothing to be found
to satisfy the void,
emptiness pervades the marrow.

reasoning, judgement awaken,
feeling limp, wrinkled sheets,
the bed is meaningless,
you are gone.

Very sad and very well written, Warmhrt.

Thanks, Denise. Believe it or not, I wrote this before the real sadness occurred...perhaps I have a sixth sense. LOL

Thanks Michael...sorry if it brought up any painful feelings. People live through this all the time, and who knows, you may come out of it a stronger person.

Excellent creative words, warmhrt.

My sincere regards,
sudhir

 Take each day as it comes,
Consider each day as a flight,
Try hard to succeed and fly,
Surely then you will reach some height.

But if by some chance you don’t,
Remember that tomorrow will always come.
Learn this well and learn this hard
That today’s efforts will pay for tomorrow’s fun.

This one hit's close to home, so I won't say too much. Just wanted to let you know I read and liked.

All my love,
Jeffrey

Jeffery,

Though I am expressing my feelings in my writing, I feel a little sorry that it sometimes evokes sad emotions or memories in those who read it. I thank you, however, for reading and taking the time to comment.

Thank you ~X~, for reading and for commenting. Not ever all alone, though...my dog thinks it's her bed, too!
