Today my soul is troubled...

Inexplicable Anguish...

I am sad like a silent mountain; caves
in whose belly are suddenly filled with
floods of tepid, simmering water...

I am troubled like a hot summer wind
that blows violent agonized with heat,
raising the dust of the sands of deserts...

In my heart I have a tumult that beats
like frenzied tornado on a desolate island-
Uprooting every tree of existence...

I am struggling like a fish out of water,
trying helplessly to catch its breath,
to somehow put an end to the torture...

I am burning in Hell-fire; Drowning in
the sea of torment, trying to inundate my soul
with inexplicable anguished thoughts...

Can someone tell me,
What is my ire?

This is so...
Incredible, so full so heavy,
Its like a indescribable weight
that when you read you feel heavier in your place
Great text Zoya I hope everything works out.

you've made agony into something beautiful...
in my opinion, such raw feeling and honesty
is the essence of poetry and you've used it
to create something wonderful.
thanks for the read.

so much pain in this write what deep depression can do to
ones mind how we try to stay afloat from sinking down deep
and I feel all these feeling you do write
Hope you are feeling better my friend from afar!
many hugs of a trillion to you and your family

You make even ire so beautiful, Zoya. I wish I could come there and find out... But I'll content myself with arranging my books tonight, I think. Hugs and smiles...
