Reality erases expectations

leaving a trail of broken truths

tears threaten internal drowning

if I donít release them soon


Doubt displaces security

uprooting years of peace

fear promises suffocation

unless I start to breathe


Frustration ousts comfort

tramples core beliefs

exhaustion finds my heart

bruises it with a squeeze


A single realization

tears my world apart

let me scream, cry, and grieve

embrace a new version of me


Sandy Knauer, 2005

True emotions poetized in "Let Me Cry" flow throughout its lines
under the sounds of wisdom.

Long healthy life, Poet!

Sandy, your alliteration is not only creatively placed, it's poetically perfect! For me, it makes this reading even more meaningful.

It is always a treat for the mind to read thoughts I can grab, mull over, understand... and this is expressed as I've not read before. One line after another... this is marvelous writing. katy xox

This pain that you have woven into you verses is universal but each one of us reacts differently I suppose. I feel a sense of renewal in your last verse which is uplifting and hopeful. Thank you, Sandy. Love and peace. Regis

Reviewed by Jerry Bolton (Reader)
You used all of the negative things that haunt us. These negative traits and situations bore into and up the writer of the poem, but in the end you looked for redemption because you felt it was there for the taking. Good.
