Whispers of Your Soul

I wanted to hear your whisper
Yet I could only hear you shout
Your soul filled with all it's turmoil
Filled my own heart with so much doubt

By holding tightly to our pain
Silence became extremely loud
The softer notes within reason
Couldn't be heard above our proud

Were we lovers of the darkness 
Cutting through silence with our knives
Shredding perceived insecurities
In hopes of saving our own lives

Some dances were not meant to be
I heard the anguish in your voice
You took a walk, didn't look back
Loving another was your choice

Then I heard a different whisper
Bubble up, from inside of me
Lessons learned, from a broken heart
Meant freedom from insanity

The New Year rewards you with blessings from your Muse I see. My friend, this is a gem of deep understanding and pain. Only one that has felt this deep pain could express it so very well! I saw my past so vividly in this fine piece! So excellently written and inspired! A super 7 from me...

The entire poem is fantastic, but I especially love the second stanza. Pride always precedes disaster.

Love can drive us crazy sometimes, and not in a good way... You've expressed those frustrations so well here... A nicely rhymed and written quatrain poem, Rick. Good luck in Gail's contest!
