blah blah blah...on and on she goes. Where she stops nobody knows. not even her. Just pray that she stops!


Tears and Fears (How Am I Challenge)

tears and fears
throughout the years
as the past rolls like
waves of a restless sea
i am today reflecting on
the course of me
i selected this class
this look at the past
as i live in the present
and delve into resentment's
torturous detriments
of what i have become
and just what has begun
in the examination, the test
that hounds me without rest
never knowing what is my best
moving like a hamster on a wheel
spinning
revolving
turning
away from what is real
trying so hard not to feel
the abstract protrait of self
i long to leave that picture
upon that dusty shelf
alone and forgotten
neglected like an apple
rotten
from the core within
aching from a worm of deceit
from my heart runs the blood
of self defeat
alone in agony of recognition
i long for a spark of ignition
to fire up the passions
of yearning and learning
to answer the question of "how"
i am discerning
my condition
now
it is reflective
and i give
my heart like
a sieve
for
pain's
ambition
Ahhh
circumvention
intention
a contrite heart
Now, there's a start.

This just rolls along, gathering up the reader in each line with a power that cannot be resisted. We are rolling along becoming one with the writer on a quest. It is all consuming. It is irresistable. It is wonderful!

What you are going through is catharsis
Of your feelings, so long pent up, and the process,
Are cleansing yourself off the pain, lamentations, frustrations and grievances.
This in itself will help you, in getting rid of the demons,
That of past haunt you in the moments of crisis...
May God heal your wounds!
**Hugs, to make you feel better**
Love,
Zoya
