Echoes of Pain!

Your words buzz in my head
Like bees, they sting at my peace

I stand abhorred in your sight
As you splash on me your deadliest vocal venom
Till I am drenched to the spirit

I flinch at the memory of your cutting remarks
I shiver at the feel of your icy comments

You kick me like a despised dog
You yank sleep from my eyelid
I crumble under the weight of despair

I am gaunt from want
I cry me a river as I miss the good old days when you treated me as a king
Days before your angry hands were stretched against me
Days before those same hands strangled my joy in the crib and condemned me to grief like a bereaved mother
For all these I should hate you
Yet my heart still stirs for you!

Patiecne should be accompanied with love.You have a unique style. You draw differrent pictures which give the meaning strength

Alfred I think this is a fantastic poem with brilliant imagry. I don't usually go for love type poems at all but this one is darned good. You have real talent.

Night soul woman,
It's my pleasure to have set the writing ball rolling for you.
I enjoyed reading your text too and it seems you have been thinking of the idea for a while because it came out in a large volume.
God bless you.
