not really a poem, more a collection of streaming thoughts


Embarrassed by my failure
Cut down by my weakness
I am laid low
I am exposed
Unable to act
Unable to fight
Relying on you
To understand somehow
Hoping I will not hear frustration in your voice
See disappointment in your face
Begging for comfort
Reaching for peace
Looking for your arms to fall into
Wanting rest
In my mind
For my body
Needing you
Needing your strength
Depending on your patience
With me and this tangled mess that is my mind
Telling you it will be over soon, soon
I am fighting for you
Fighting for it all

"This tangled mess that is my mind": great phrase in a cool poem!

Zoya Zaidi
Yeah, sometimes we are like that, and then a poem is always a good way of giving vent to your feelings- Cathartic! Ain't it?
Love, Zoya

Phyllis J. Rhodes
He's there. He has always been there, through all your battles. He will not give up on you. You have too much invested in each other. You are part of each other. You will make it. He needs you and loves you so much.
