~*Lost In a Sea Of Sorrow *~


In the quiet of the evening when tapping comes the rain,
I get depressed and under stress, start battling my pain.
Lost in a sea of sorrow, hiding in a frown, memories trapping,
On the surface of my mind the rain keeps tap, tap, tapping.

I am tangled in the loss of something I did not choose.
Every day another hope is lost, and I canít find any clues.
How to conquer? How to fix me?  How to take away the pain and past?
They have even clipped my tail, to make this suffering last.

And ever is the darkness that pervades my inner soul,
I'm falling, ever falling, down a dark and endless hole
Living in the hope that I'll be saved by reality,
I flounder back and forth in a sea of opinions endlessly.

I know of no escape from this bitter awful place,
So I face each day with what seems insurmountable disgrace.
I raise my arms up to the sun, for the strength to carry on,
And hope that no one sees me till this suffering is gone.

Drowning in a sea of one more victimís distress,
Is me who needs much loving, and to live with no duress.
I am hiding in a sea of sorrow, lost inside a frown,
But I will never give up searching until the child in me is found.

How come mermaids always get to be nude? Ponder this: we use them because of lost youth? All kidding aside, the writing stands without the art work and that is how it should be.

Mysteria~

I was a mermaid
once upon a time
with tales of tails
lost in the brine

I chanced upon
a mariner's dream
and caught the net
of one it seems

Surfaced from the
billowing deep
Held in strong arms
as I now sleep

*Jeez ... just look ... ya' got me pumped !  LOL !
Have a great day !

I'm awestruck Mysteria.  This is rather exquisite.  *s*

On the wings of words our spirits fly....and our souls are free.

Marge ~*~ you truly make me laugh - you are ALWAYS pumped and poems come out of you like popcorn popping, and you just popped a good one!

Gentle Spirit~*~ It is people like you that give me the confidence to try harder, thank you.

Saunne ~*~ I am so happy when people like what I write, and you made me happy, thank you.

Green Eyes ~*~ Thank you there is depth in this one, and I guess I would have to explain and that takes the fun away! Thanks!

Martie ~*~ The fact that YOU liked it made me smile!
