My Primary Emotion

             ~ My Primary Emotion~

Three days ago I decided to become heartless by
eliminating my Spirit and Soul I could not take
the agony anymore.

I urged my lawyer to come, he looked at me and 
asked, what is wrong? Gazing at him said, 
I don't regret committing that felony against them 
I need to be punished lets go to court. 

Having no reaction, looking disoriented he 
opened the door walked me to his car & drove 
to court.
 
Standing opposite the judge I stared at 
him bluntly, he was reviewing my report 
looked at me ushered to sit in the box 
to be persecuted.

The defense lawyer aware of my crimes 
seemed intrigued and asked, madam 
what caused you to retaliate against your 
Spirit & Soul?.

I needed to disrupt their thoughts which 
turned against me, the chaos in my brain 
became unbearable, exhausted by their 
discussions aggravated my strength 
weakened me, my whole body was 
antagonizing, intentionally forcing my 
thoughts to become heartless, merciless
when I attacked them.

Both profited from my kindness my 
patience, my healing was not responding,
needing some peace to pray for a miracle
as my young brother today is near death, 
cancer of the lungs, he`s getting colder by 
the minute, not eating, not socializing, alone, 
my tears were overflowing beyond control,
when I heard a friendly whisper coming from 
my Heart crying, enough is enough your thoughts 
need to stop to allow yourself recognize wrath is 
unbearable, your sorrow is taking you nowhere, 
wait for the diagnosis.

Out of compassion the judge set me free
my kindness befriended my Spirit & Soul
together we went back home. Waiting. 

I was surrounded by them knowing
ahead of me will be the longest night 
I will ever experience in years, because 
I was determined to stay awake 
for that call.

The echo of the ringer came louder than usual
we heard this message! 
Minutes ago he was wide awake
Minutes ago his heart tore him away
minutes ago his casket was carried astray
minutes ago underground he will lay.
Minutes ago I wished him an endless
goodbye with a sigh.

My friends held me step by step walked
me to bed covered me up stayed until I had 
no more tears to shed. 
Those were my emotions for today. Grieving
over the loss of my young brother. Sadness.

    Therese, this broke my heart...when go through these times it is hard to see past our own pain to the why of it. I myself look to the only peace I know..Isaiah 57:2, says the righteous find rest as they lie in death and are taken to be spared from evil...big hugs...Donna

    Awesomely written poem you got there. I wrote one called MY Brother Bill, I remember about a month after he came to my front door, it was open, winked at me, then gone. Then he came in a dream with my mom. They had smiles. I really wanted my mom to stay .

    Dear Terry, the way you take your stress and woes and use your imagination to turn them into such a poem as this one is incredible. To imagine taking your heart and soul to court. That shows such a creative mind. May God be with you today and especially with your dear brother. I know Happy Easter does not fit this occasion. So I will just tell you, I hope you have a peaceful Easter day.

    the suffering side in the earth we do dwell, the awful infliction, the cancer of hell, yet we try to survive, yet we try, please don't let my sweet loved one die, and sometimes our lord he does answer...

    This is a beautifully sad poem my dear friend Therese. So touching but I've enjoyed reading your story this morning. I hope this is only a fiction. There are times that things in life seems unbearable but I know God is always there and He never forsake because He love the world and He love us so much. I hope you're doing well. God bless you and Happy Easter! thanks for sharing this gem of yours today! love and big hugs, Leonora

    Thank you so much Leonora, but it is true, he is 71 years old, unfortunately living in a far country, and due to my health i could not join him, being alone is hurting me a lot. I know God is great, and will receive him when his time is out. Thank you again, i felt your warmth. Love Terry xoxo

    Therese, I'm so so sorry you are going through this....a brother is a treasure! I have two older brothers. Being helpless is the worst part of it all. That voice you heard is the voice of God telling you that it is all in His hands. Sending you love!
