Brokenness. Thanks Gajus and dollarphotoclub.
Thanks Gajus and dollarphotoclub.

Reaches in and grabs my heart

For no apparent rhyme or reason

Perhaps it is the weather and the season

I feel like my soul is being ripped apart


Tears fall like tropical rains down my face

Shaking trying to catch the pattern of breath

Crucifying inner pain despite my effort’s best

Learning to maintain my own unique pace


Asking too many questions without distinction

Trying to control a wild beast in it’s madness

Afraid to supplicate assistance from out my shyness

I am gutted by the threat of my true extinction


I feel broken.

I have been writing all my life but for the most part, it has been a secret. My parents did not believe writing was a good way to earn money so I hid my poems. Then one day, I wanted to comment on an essay that a friend had written and found myself with a blog. That quiet whisper inside said, "You can write your poetry and no one will ever know.". I knew nothing of followers and the like at that time. So, here I am trying to learn my craft and enjoying every moment of it. My personal details are, I'm 57, married for 39 years, have one grown son who is God's gift to us and last but not least at all, I'm a Baha'i which basically means that I love all humanity.

  1. That is a pretty deep ‘poem’ Carol. Are you alright? I used to write stuff like that, years ago, when I was going through some pretty tough times.

    Not to come on like a salesman, but you might want to try SamE. I explained it a little on one of my pages (I’ll leave a link if you are interested) I promote it on. The reason I promote it is because it worked wonders for me. I took it for ten days and felt like a different person.

      1. I am very serious about that SamE Carol. At one point, I felt like ending it all. One of the links in the article I did leads to an article on Wikipedia telling you what SamE is. I can not stress the positive effect it had on me enough. You might want to try it. You can buy it anywhere. I do care. I know how devastating depression can be.
