I stand alone

Many tears I have cried,
For the parts of me that have died.
For so long I've stood alone,
My heart eventually turned to stone.

I found a way to set in motion,
To feel no more and turn off my emotions.
Deep within I had the fight,
Dreams of love always out of sight.

Pushed everyone away,
I became a stray.
And even through my darkest days,
I found my way out of the maze.

No matter how deep you dig my hole,
I'll stand up strong and save my soul.
You've all mastered the art, of breaking my heart.
But the best of me, you'll never get to see
And in misery you'll all end, because never again will I bend.

Cheryl, Welcome to Poetry soup, I hope you enjoy the community. Here, you will find friendly poets who enjoy supporting one another. I myself, enjoy reading and commenting those who want to be read. The only time I give constructive criticism is when a poet desires it. However, if for some reason the poem is not my field I will guide you to someone who is more qualified than I. Stop by and read one of my poems if you like. My poems are not perfect, but I have a feeling you might like one. I encourage you to check out the contest page and read to receive comments. Tell me a little about your poetic skills if you like. It will be my pleasure to follow and read every poem you post from here on :) We are Lucky To Have you. Your New Poet Friend @-> LINDA <-@
