I sit staring, forlorn
Shoulders weak
Suspending the weight
Of the world
Pressure pulsates in the
Caverns of my heart
My soul disillusioned
My thoughts are meek
Internal fight merely
Smoldering ashes
Drifting in the wind
Direction unknown
Demanded by all
Not pleasing to oneself
Running towards illusion
Weak, panting
Needing sustenance
Pleading for help
Cut-off by walls
Encircling loved ones
No one sees the destruction
My body imploding within
Summoned by quicksand
Gasping for life

Very REAL poetry. My friend is arising from her quicksand now.

Captivating in its strong emotive appeal and meaning. I know this feeling, Anne. You have done a masterful job of sharing its power. Thank you. Love, peace and strength to you. Regis

JAYS this one is claustrophobic--and i understand this feeling all too well.

Powerfully, vividly, painfully expressed--

(((HUGS))) and love, Karla. :(

How claustrophobic, Anne.
I hate it when this happens.
A strong write though.

I find what the others have said especially Steven to be what I would say.
Reviewed by John Bidwell 2/20/2005
This is incredible.
It would be nice to hope this is just some poetic burp that has nothing to do with your circumstances.
If it's all too real, please go get the Blue Collar Comedy Tour DVD now.

Dear Anne,
This poem touched me deeply. I once wrote a poem called 'Stillness erupts' and although it was very different, the cry was the same. On the surface calm but beneath those still waters, fire breathing dragons lay in wait. It sounds like a lot of loving care is needed. If this is where you find yourself right now, I can only pray that you find relief...that those loved ones around you show their love of you and take the pressure from those poor weary shoulders. Take heart Anne, your voice is heard and even if we, your fellow poets, can't physically do anything to help you we are here to support you. Please reach out if you need care. You are a special woman.
With love Chanti

heartbreaking write, Anne...I would hope that the family you're encircling might be able to help you...all you have to do is ask ;)
