|Only walls listen|

Duluth, MN, USA
I'm dying on the inside
I bleed from within.
All my emotions are churned by the wind.
I don't know what I feel
all I see is darkness
I feel pain, I feel heart ache
and I don't feel at all.
A Queen within a castle, locked up from
Rarely letting visitors from outside the walls.
At night, the Queen cries out with
But only walls listen.
She had a King, but she felt he was wrong.
She let him go, and now he's gone.
She cries out at night, calling his name
but only walls listen
to her pain.
A Queen with stubborn pride, is what she is
putting this upon herself.
"Walls, my only friends, listen to me now as
I say these words to you.." she said..
" Happy heart, once had I, but now a happy heart
is no more. A painful and stubborn pride have I.
I apologize, my King!!!"
The King never heard her that night, only walls
I cry out. But no one hears.

In the space between moments
Deeply painful work this is. This is all too often true, for many of us have only the walls to hear of our pain. Exellent work!
As soon as man does not take his existence for granted, but beholds it as something unfathomably mysterious, thought begins.

man, that is a very well written poem, and too often true.... Heh, I find I sometimes that I have just the opisite problem, my friends seem to need someone to listen, but they wont talk, I wait and wait, but never the lips do crack.
"Sa souvraya niende missian ye." I am lost in my own mind.
