Tormented

I can no longer suppress this deep loathing
That writhes and churns, flogs and smothers 
Every loving and tender sentiment within
My sullen mind;
Once filled with vain gaiety and vain desire,
Now embittered.  
Isolation can make weak even the strongest souls,
But a noose to the neck will not ease this pain,
For Death denies such true repose.
Then tell me, how can I ever be at peace,
When alive the guilt kills me so?

Very dark and despairing ... it tugs at the soul begging to be noticed. I'm amazed by how many diverse directions people took this theme. My own take was rather optimistic. But that's the beauty of this site ... so many poets looking at the same thing and taking away different visions.

This poem opens the door to the heart and removes the partition of isolation. I think not that it is the 'truth' that kills, for it is the truth that sets us free. GBU.
