crippled in the grief
as all i've ever known
the oppressive shackles drag
behind each dreaded shuffle

years have stretched and still
i weep here in the shadows'
watching those i love smile
out of reach from my stretched rope

i am dragged back to this room
to hang my head in misery
that i can not understand
how joy can come so easy

when all we are is alone
this depression is familiar
like a cloak weighed in lead
i sit and ponder its existence

    You wrote what most poets are feeling at times.. we search deep within and then write.. if not we go crazy... Your comments on so much of my work last night was so amazing to wake up to... Love when my words can connect with another.. xxx Michael

    Tara the shackles of daily life can become so heavy that we just crawl inside of ourselves and retreat to the comfort and safety of our own little corner watching from the inside out, as long as you can still write like this there is a piece of you still fighting the fight, have faith the opening gets bigger with time...David
