One Last Poem


My heart feels as if it's going to explode.
I feel so deathly sad and all alone.
Not empty in any way,
I know this because the pain is so intense,
it's approaching a level that's insane.

If I could cry anymore I would openly weep,
but I'm all cried out,
dehydrated from all the days and nights
I've lied in bed crying myself to sleep,
wishing that I were dead.

You might ask if I truly have a heart,
and I don't blame you not one bit.
I assure you that I do.
It's filled with immense love,
but tons of sorrow and regret too.

So one last poem before I retire.
I just needed to expel the overwhelming
feelings from inside,
an intense, blazing, raging sad fire
that just hurts my heart,
it makes my stomach sick and I double over.

Just one last poem to artistically cry out.
It's not very good
but the hell with it.
My last poem, my heart, and stomach
are hurting so bad inside.
I'm intensely weeping.

Goodbye here from my last sub standard poem.
I've lost my drive, my heart, that helped me write.
I resign from this art
I can't continue on.

    . - So one last poem before I retire.
    I just needed to expel the overwhelming
    feelings from inside an intense, blazing,
    raging sad fire that just hurts my heart,
    it makes my stomach sick and I double over. This verse reminds me of the reasons I started writing to begin with. When I was diagnosed with PTSD there were to many things that were impossible to say out loud poetry allowed me to expel those feelings. (Report) Reply

    The Universe always unfolds perfectly.
    For out biggest growth.
    Let go, let go of all
    events can't change but perception can
    Let go
    sit in stillness and be
    you are love and must live it
    You are a kind soul, full of greatness
    Keep sharing all that you are
    and let go of what is heavy
    Things are only heavy if you don't
    DROP THEM

    Blessings brothers
    you are amazing (Report) Reply

Dost see how unregarded now
That piece of beauty passes?
There was a time when I did vow
To that alone;
But mark the fate of faces;
