Inner Exeption

This breath I hold, for a moment to long. My steps no longer with it's bounce, as I drag my shoes to the ground. A ladies cry for help, at surface she holds it together. A mind to complex, far from reality. The blank stares, as I dream a better place. Another site to see, as yet again a back is turned. I see the ugly, and live the negative. My mind is at a different turn, as I try and pick up these shards of glass cutting me deeply.

I like this N. J. How some women (men, too) hold a good face while screaming inside (well, maybe not screaming). BTW: In line 7, did you, possibly, mean to say, too instead of to?

nothing makes me sadder to know you are or maybe sad, a little stressed and confused.. I assume.... I know how it is to hold your breath and drag along a life of negativity. I was told once by a clever little girl.. "Stop Being So Negative." and ever since, i work on it... This is a nice impressive poem.. Well the imagery is what i call a SOUL DROPPER... and it cuts in ways, that makes me want to hold you right now. PS... your blog was very sweet. I TOOOO had a small tear. Always <3LOVE YOU<3

Royal, welcome back! I enjoyed reading your poem tonight. Writing can be so cathartic and sharing our thoughts can be, too. Love and blessings, Rhonda
