Pain – #WednesdayVerses

Sometimes I wonder what it takes,
At what point my patience breaks;
Where does hope fade into black?
Where this journey goes off track?

For silver linings, I ignore the cloud,
Ignore dark voices I hear so loud;
But how much longer can I persist,
Sadly, I don’t know if I can resist.

Pain I’ve felt, it seems that close,
But what’s painful, do you know?
When I don’t know what’s wrong,
An endless fall going on and on.

No words seem to heal my cuts,
No ounce of instinct from my gut;
No friendly faces to lend a smile,
Just alone… alone all the while.

Pain I’ve felt, no stranger it is,
It goes off and comes like this,
But it’s more painful when I say,
I don’t know when it’ll go away.

Poetry & writing are to me, a breath of fresh air in a life that is sometimes covered by the smoke of sorrow or self doubt. They also become the sweets I share to celebrate when life offers me a reason to. But most of all, they are to me, my life. For each word I write is a piece of my heart, a thought that just had to find its way into the world.
