I come to you
spilling my guts
with the utmost caution
Control when relinquished
runs amok like ants
from an anthill
Crushed by a careless foot
not to be regained without
Religious attention to detail

Every session is a chess match
Strategy carefully considered 
by two minds juxtaposed
Both fighting for the same sanity
One carefully probing for chinks
The other stoic in guise
Carefully examining every sound
Awaiting frontal attack

Neither successfully touching
the heart matter
the blood source
the brain connection
Creating the life reflection
For now there is no victor
No resolutions
Only small in-trails 
Of the past

wow, this is quite a write! What is it called in Chess: a stalemate then? I don't know chess lingo, but the metaphor is awesome.

Janet, it seems we never get listened to. Whether it be a therapist or a loved one. Great write. Well done. :O) Keep up with the great work. Keep on penning. Thank you so very much for sharing your wonderful and creative talents with us. We all truly appreciate it. *S* Cynthia

Came to really like this therapist. Anyone who can cry for you when you can't is someone who listens. Sadly she was killed shortly after. Beautiful lady.

Janet, this poem is one of the best I've read that addresses the angst that exists in far too many human relationships. You handle that subject with admirable skill, which is no small feat. Beautifully done . . . kudos.

Paul, Thank you for the comments on "Therapy" It's not ever an easy task, but this is one of my faves. It is an older write but new to this site.
