I would love to be strong and write of my spiritual core
and say it doesnít matter anymore, that I am fine,
swimming back to shore.

But that was the poem I wrote four long hours ago.
My soul screams for you to know, and so I write line by line,
swinging high to low.

I scratch my head, try not to think of darkness closing in.
I can remember only where Iíve been; this is a sign
to stop and begin.

These words mean nothing to you, almost everything to me.
Confusion spreads and causes me to be a wayward vine
scrambling to the tree.

You will read my words, slightly amused and wondering who
has got me turned inside out, crazy blue, sudden landmine,
going loopy loo.

Letís avoid the mystery and deal in invitation.
Come boldly; with every expectation, come close to shine
kind ministration.

Embrace my love, my fear, my need. Find mercy to love long
as nightís shadow on the dark sea. Belong to the red wine,
going, going, gong.

A poet writes their souls as you have in this beautiful poem.
Reviewed by Janet Parker
A beautiful write, but so futile. I can totally relate to your words because I've been there. There is hope, out there. I'm living proof.

This is a real gem Dawn. Outside of the topic which of course is so full of bittersweet longing, the internal rhyme is superb. How you manage it in this format, is incredible to me, your thoughts seem to be flying and flowing with the themal winds .Brava!A keeper for sure;-) Thank you for sharing!

There comes a time when we must realize that the feelings, the love and the emotions are/were ours and ours alone. The other person never knew or experienced them nor do they have any intention of walking down that pathway again to try and find them. We must first let go before we can ever again find the feelings with someone who can and will share them with us.
Take care,

I agree with Sandy below on having to implicitly follow your intuition at all times Dawn !
I would say its a time for you to pull your socks up, and show true grit and determination to resolve your problems with the Grace of God !
No one else is going to come knocking at your door, offering to do it for you !
Be bold and courageous...and get on with it !
Reviewed by Sandie Angel
Sometimes, we let our emotions lead the way when we write.
It is the time that our intuitions are of the highest.
