 ~Comfortable Distance~

Felt crushed down to the ground
Empty feelings all the way around
Only knowing fear, and rejection
Wanting real love, and protection
Prays to escape her hidden cage
And never see those eyes of rage
Secluded behind the wall of pride
Shackles up tight his lovely bride
Afraid she might be taken if seen
Comfortable distance in between
Kept her soul from reaching out
Needed support without a doubt
Confined made it difficult to play
Had enough decided that today
Everyone would hear her shout
It's my time to live, now let me out!

I know it's easier to say than do, but I hope this tortured
woman will kick the door (or whatever is in the way), walk out
and never look back. Damn well written, Chessly. -gene.

Chessly this is a very compelling poem. Disturbing and yet hopeful of liberty. Wonderful work.
Reviewed by Amber Moonstone 2/4/2011
Chessly, this is a very serious issue that you write about. In so many ways any woman who has felt trapped in a relationship, marraige, situation can feel your words touch the very core of her soul. There are so many in this situation..I pray for them and thank you for touching on a very delicate subject matter with class and sensitivity.

Well done!

Peace, love and light my sweet dear,

I like Jerry's true, This is a poem I wrote when I must of been feeling the same, your words felt Chessly, Love and Hug, Christine


I would pack up my life,
hit the trail of dust,
no borders would I see,
mountains not an obstacle,
but stone of steps to lead,
this shackled heart that paid the price,
to be unlocked and finally set free

I hear ya. Prisons don't all have steel bars.

this piece takes me to the lovely ladies behind
the Islamic Religions and the hijab & kaftan tunics
or any other woman behind metaphoric veils. No one
should ever remain where they do not want to be...period.
Your words reveal this with depths (to me) & I hope all
women will always stand up for what they want & deserve.
It's never a bad time to dump a bad situation...

This is wonderful, aristic and awake poetry, and I so understand this at the deepest level. It takes some great act of courage...

We all get that fenced in feeling at times, i got it now, with this ice and snowy weather and being bound in the house for days on end.
Reviewed by John Flanagan 2/3/2011
This makes perfect sense if 'sense' is the right word when it comes to strong emotion, but you know what i mean.
The urge to break free is more than a want or a need, it's a demand the soul makes.
This is fine thinking and feeling and writing, Chessly.

That is how to say it, Chessly! I can feel the emotions in each line perfectly.

Even love can imprison someone if it is not given and received as a free spirit with the ability to fly if the need to happens...

Very vivid and compelling, Chessly. No one should be shackled, no matter what the circumstance. You presented your case brilliantly, Chessly.
