Spinning In Words Of Pain


There is gathering news from the east
Words fly to me
Pleading me, needing me, seeking me
Hearts are touched
And I realize there is more to me
Than I realize

My pockets are empty
My heart is full
My palms are cold
But please take ahold

All lies in jest
All ties, bounds are broken
In my Anger, in my shame
I twist on my personal cross in pain

Resistance, still I hear what I want to hear
In fear, yes mortal fear
Standing here in the freezing cold
But I am a fighter and I still remain
I am a dancer to words, a skater
Spinning in pain to my lines of rhyme

    Beautifully poetic and described with so much (as I see it) written passion. Naturally placed. Some could spend their whole lives trying to come up with such beautiful wording which is powerful yet imaginative
    And I realize there is more to me.... Than I realise. So lovely. Tyvm (Report) Reply
