Echoes Of The Heart

                      ~Echoes Of The Heart.~
                                      
Yesterday she was carrying a void felt deep in her heart its echo 
was begging someone to fill her needs to be free to love & venture 
through society accept to socialize allow her heart to search for a 
different attitude towards life to fill her emptiness. Its so hard 
to keep up with those changes of feelings without finding solutions. 
She prayed her consciousness to stop listening to voices 
of loneliness.

Fear obliged her soul to escape from being locked in an arena 
with lions to mutilate her spirit due to feebleness. 
She wept why she could not fly like a bird to the sky and land 
on the sand stand and wave to thee unknown ask to be rescued .

She wished anyone could send a feather with the wind towards 
her hearts echo, as a whisper of connecting. 
The more time passed the more her heart felt deserted, she couldn't 
walk as her feet were stuck in the cement. 

The void was getting stronger she doesn't know why, maybe if she 
rings a bell someone will come looking for her, she doesn't want to 
know anymore why she feels confused in her own battle of survival.

Nobody knows why the echo inside her heart was far from listening, 
refusing to respond to the same philosophy she had a few years ago, 
she was strong, accepting, walking, breathing normal, but what is normal, 
she seems to be very far away from changing to normal, she wants to 
give up fighting and drown with all her feelings only to surface when
she understands and becomes normal.

Maybe the winter cold and snow are all over her body she must be 
frozen as her breathing is waiting for a sign to pump some air into 
her lungs, she tried but when she looked outside it was so somber,
her emotions begged to stop thinking, only exist for the moment. 

When the night will surround her darkness she will be born again to 
fill her own aloneness, she writes poetry and reads books, she  
shares her thoughts with her own thoughts, and wonder how sad 
just to survive because one has to, today her wish is to let go and
trigger her feelings to take an ugly turn by vanishing without even 
leaving a note why? She needed desperately to listen to the echos 
emerging from her heart telling her what to do, she will wait.

Because her wishes could not find someone to love and breath the 
same air at that advanced age, that was the reason why existing was 
not worth it anymore, she was ready to let go of her spirit and soul, 
suddenly her hearts echo grew louder forbidding her not to run 
towards her night table where she had all her medications, but reach 
out to God befriend Him and sleep with the thought of waking up for 
another tomorrow to remain alive and stay in love.

Tonight her echo was urging her to chatter with her thoughts 
and listen to her echo echoing that her lover of 43 years will 
come back, do not panic, he left to explore his own path and 
listen to his own echo while flying away for an intermission 
to feel what his heart wants him to do. 
You must desire the same energy that your hearts echoes fly 
together towards your doorsteps and place that outstanding 
red rose a sign of love for your tomorrows. 

Knowing your love is & was an everlasting love
time Is your witness, wait for him, he will be back.

    Hi Terry; Thanks for reading my poem. This poem is so sad. I hope you are not talking about yourself. Sometimes it gets to us. I hate to take medication. That's why I got sick the other day. I'm better now. I know that I still got miles to go - before I sleep. God bless you. Lucy

    Dear Lucy, Yes i am like you but older of course, but on the same road of allowing myself to feel the moments of my state of mind, then i move on to being normal to accepting because we have to.Thank you lucy my friend. Love Terry xoxo

    Good morning my dear friend! So glad to drop by here to read this beautifully sad poem of yours. I can feel the sadness and I want to send you a feather with hugs. I hope you're getting better now. I'm not a mother yet but I understand the feeling. I left my mum at my early age to study and work in a far place.It's my fate i believe. My dad is gone & my 2 brothers have family of their own. She's left alone but I try my best 2 talk to her on phone 1/wk. We're here 4 u dear. Love & Hugs, Leo

    Reading this reminded me a bit of the lyrics to "I've Never Been to Me" by Charlene Duncan. Very descriptive collection of words and lines.

    My dear friend, when you feel your “feet are stuck in the cement” Just lift your eyes high and ask the LORD to send you your friends! We never alone unless we want to be alone! Excellent dramatic and didactic poem that can be understood better by those who have lived it! Excellent work!

    My dear Therese, I have not forgotten you, how could I? Was reading your poems from time to time. Here is something wrote for you tonight:.....When the darkness envelops our soul in desperation And fear the resident of our heart does become We must turn our eyes to heavens for inspiration And ask from our LORD something for that to be done!............. God bless you we are never alone! Beautiful writing!

    That last stanza could have been my own feelings expressed at one time...all three of mine went off to college almost at the same time, and the void was terribly apparent, even with having a good marriage. It is so hard to let go.......you aren't alone with the empty nest sense of lonliness.

    I wish anyone could send me a feather with the wind as a whisper of connecting, time passes the more my depth feels deserted, i cant walk as my feet are stuck in the cement. How often have I felt these beautiful beautiful words you have penned. Ya Rab...may He give you what your heart desires! I'm sending you love!
