Deeper and deeper
reaching nadir, end of abyss
Searches for your smell
Nothing around, just silence of solitude
and a faint heart beat,
a rhythmic drum
Beating you, you, you
can you hear, my silent screams
find me, bind me, slit my wrist
Blood gushing through
Calling only you
Return I beg
before death is due

These are the words of torture. I hope you are well, AB.
Searches for your smell…I love that line.
Thank you AD,
I am ok, it is interesting that I left some humble words at your doorstep and when I got to my home I saw your missive 🙂
Thank you for coming over, it is always good to have you around. Re this poem, just whatever my heart desires I go with the flow, there is no point fighting with your own heart.If it wants to bleed I say let it, then it sings beautiful songs of joy and I always join in 🙂
I must say that it is interesting, indeed. Always good to hear from you, AD. My doorstep is always welcoming of your poetry.
I love that you have no fear and write from the heart. I think poets die a little bit each time we don’t let our words flow. I try very hard to allow mine out. Courage I have not enough of, it seems.
Let it flow 🙂
I shall 🙂 Alas my time has come to an end. See you soon… 😉
See me soon 🙂 how 🙂 have a good evening 🙂
😆 AD! It isn’t evening here. Plenty of daylight left for poetry. I hope you have a good evening. 🙂
And like all beautiful accidents, my comment got posted, look at the title of the second one..absolutely brilliant 🙂 I suggest you delete the other one with my name 🙂
Your poem is powerful and hits deep!
It feel that way about a person.
But I also feel it about certain things in nature…like the moon.
Yes, I’m weird.
I guess I just wanted to say that your words and feelings are important and speak to those of us who read them. As a poet, you express things that some of us can’t express. You give words/a voice to our feelings.
Good to know Carolyn 🙂 I speak from my heart and I am happy that it has few listeners like yourself, thank you for sharing your true feelings here! I am humbled and honoured! Lots of hugs to you 🙂
I like when people’s hearts “talk” to each other. It makes a person feel less alone and more understood.
No thank you 🙂
Whoa, these are really powerful and dark words. Your honesty I truly respect! So many of us bottle up the painful emotions, and here you are, a little healthier for putting to pen, words that describe deep soul pain. Beautifully portrayed. Thank you! xx Amy
Grateful for such support Amy. Thank you so much 🙂
Overwhelming words! Fantastic!!!!
