Helpless


A fierce battle between my heart and mind Because of this , peace I'm not apt to find It seems I'm helpless in deed and thought Oh God, look what loving him has brought... I always knew I was just a casual friend But my heart rode roughshod in the end All this sighing, moaning all for naught Oh God, look what loving him has brought... Now depression has me in a fearful hold And I'm fearful of my story yet untold What foolishness my poor mind has wrought Oh God, look what loving him has brought...

Congratulations on your win, Barbara. Such an honest and personal write. There is a universal feel to this piece. all those who have loved and lost can identify with your piece. The refrain sounds like those silent conversations we have with God.. a cross between a prayer and a lament. Again, thanks for the entry - Cyndi

I think we've all at one time or another have given our hearts to someone who's taken us down a path which has left us asking ourselves,..."Why?" A brilliant and well-rhymed writing. Smooth in rhythm and flow. Milt

Passionate with a deep bit of heartache there, Barbara Gorelick. Nicely done; it bleeds a little of personal experience.
