A turning point reached...

Catharsis


With a quick turn
of her tongue
I am cut
to the bone

With a swift turn
of her blade,
a sharp word
on the phone

I lay there
taking it,
letting the blood
slowly flow

Your words
are your weapons,
I brace myself
awaiting the final blow

Inside I scream…
Enough!!!

With a quick burn
a cauterized soul
a hardened heart
gaze back in my eye

I am changed…
a new…

It is now your turn
to try and fill the hole
in your patterned part
I no longer believe your lie

I am the teflon heart
from this day forward
to never know pain
or joy from the start

when time succumbs to the wounded heart
the soul shall find inner peace & wisdoms beyond all measure
even for the vicious heart whom is also in need
until then we all ride this wonderful journey of emotions
captured within emotional poety such as your deep ""Catharsis"!
Peace, Love & Inspirations to You Robert
