Upon a Deaf Heart


In darkness I sit; for warmth I await
My soul in tears; my feet wet from its pain
Reach for me I beg; lift me from this rivers weight
My spirit cries for release; my heart screams your name
The depth of my hurt not understood; a rift in time they create
Do not let me fall; in your hands should my soul remain

Allow not this realm to take me; save me from this drowning fate
Too many times I’ve been here, I can no longer journey this terrain
Heightened senses overwhelm; I must learn this heart to sedate
With your heart in my hands it would never feel these bitter rains
But in tears you let mine reside; where it molds and begins to stagnate
I scream for you to lift me but here I sit still; voiceless beneath unyielding chains

 

 ...when her heart cries to be lifted, hear it.
 
Visual: "She was drowning but nobody saw her struggle."

    Full-bodied emotion. Had me guessing if she was drowning spiritually, emotionally, or bodily...perhaps all three. Great ink! Congratulations!

    "voiceless beneath unyielding chains"...that a perfect way to express the hopelessness of a moment. Nicely written, and good luck in the contest. -G

    A cold, unfathomable descent into solitude...... I enjoyed this piece.... paints a pic!
  1. Date: 4/27/2016 7:31:00 PM

    Sounds like a poetic description of the descent into the abyss of depression and despondency. Sad sad

    Very deep write Flo...sometimes we can find ourselves at the depths of emotional rivers...best wishes in the contest...
  1. Date: 4/26/2016 5:23:00 PM

    very intense one on the subject, Flo. The anguish is strongly felt and I love how you ended it with a one line piece of advice. I chose that visual too but did a different way . I don't see congrats here, but I am hoping you get on the NEXT list! We can re-enter!!!

    Very deep.. sadly so many do go through this.. but people do not realise and they suffer alone....

    Very emotive and expressive work..At some time most of us are drowning in some form of emotional or physical crisis..Sara

    What a beautiful write FJ. ...but will she allow you when you try to lift her.

    A cry for help and understanding, reaching out to be released from pain and anguish. Sad...but beautiful! #7 ~ Best regards // paul
