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."

    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 wishes in the contest...

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