Title: It ends inside
Post by: "lorraineofkeli" on November 25, 2008, 06:15:52 AM
The words I saw
Hidden from me, "supposedly"
I knew what it meant:
The end. For me.

You are my past
my memories are you
Our baby now binds us
what sort of view?
my life must take
It's not mine you see.
It's yours as well

You've ruined me
Those words I see
They're not from me
From a stranger whose pictures
They sicken me.

You stupid, arrogant
foolish man
My memories are tainted
with a presence of mind
that won't take me through

Not in the long term
I hesitate to say
But inside me, the end -
It's not far away

Perhaps in reality
You think I'm sound
But my mind is awash with
hatred - no bounds

So I will continue
for the sake of our One
The only One
No more can I bear
Both the pain and the fear
Physical with emotion
entwined as that one

It ends. For me at least.
Inside.

This was a beautiful poem, the way it's written is gorgeous...the way you weave the words together.  It has a real deep meaning, it sound very dark.  I hope everything is alright in your life.
Good luck!

I really like what this poem is trying to say, very beautiful and heart felt. I have added my comments below.


The words I saw
Hidden from me, "supposedly" I don't think you need the punctuation on supposedly, it works without it.
I knew what it meant:
The end. For me.

You are my past
my memories are you
Our baby now binds us   I like this but think you should try and remove the rhyme. I don't think it works and it stands out from the rest of
what sort of view?            the poem.
my life must take
It's not mine you see.
It's yours as well

You've ruined me
Those words I see
They're not from me
From a stranger whose pictures
They sicken me.                      I would remove the word 'they'.

You stupid, arrogant
foolish man
My memories are tainted
with a presence of mind
that won't take me through

Not in the long term
I hesitate to say
But inside me, the end -
It's not far away

Perhaps in reality
You think I'm sound
But my mind is awash with
hatred - no bounds

So I will continue
for the sake of our One
The only One
No more can I bear
Both the pain and the fear
Physical with emotion
entwined as that one

It ends. For me at least.    I love this ending!
Inside.

What a beautiful baby!

I liked the poem, and I thought about it, you are blessed, not deprived.
