Crying

Crying really deep down inside
tearing the core out
and staring at the worms in horror
how did they get there?
Spit out what is left over
and wash away the bitter aftermath
with tears

Grief
dark and locked in a dungeon
dry, dusty, and voiceless
forgotten.

Like the long stretch of barren beach
before the tsunami overwhelms
I drown in waves of sorrow
that flood my rumpled face

Tears
silently stain
as they release the pain
pent-up behind dam walls.

I crumble
and fall

and remember it all.

Feelings

In between
Thought
and Instinct,
when together they fall asleep,
A peaceful baby gently wakes
I name her simply,
Feelings.

Expressing Feelings

It’s one thing to say what’s going on

and what I feel is quite another

A poem to express feelings?

I can say, “Love, Anger,

Fear, Hate”

Or must I be more subtle,

to purvey the finest shades

of tenderness

and innocence…

Or Raw, Uncensored

Feelings which

Rip

my heart

apart.

I hope I’m not too late!
