Talk to me

Why do  you always see my side of the story last.

I can’t stand it anymore your words rip me apart like  a blast

Of cold wind………. plane crash life of mine.

A thousand cuts would hurt less  than this slow death.

I am screaming at  you LISTEN, listen to me before nothing is left.

Don’t turn away leaving me here drowning in my pain and  your bile

Stop before it is too late , I am the one who has been here for you all the while!

Why do we rip eachother limb from bloody limb, with words deadlier  than any serpants bite.

I don’t  think I can keep up the fight.

    Wow…. That, dear Willow, is ripping emotion! Probably the most gripping, striking, emotional piece of yours I have seen to date… After reading it I was left with a thousand emotions, a million words could not have surpassed these very few in affect. To me that is poetry – reaching out from within the pages and words, grabbing the reader’s heart and forcefully pulling it back into itself, And then calmly caressing, placing the heart back where it belongs, listening to it’s beat, slightly different than it was before the encounter…. Magnificent.

      Thank you John coming from you this comment means a lot to me. I always find your posts grab me often taking my breath away. I wrote from the heart , I do know how high and vast a rift between two people can be . Deep and vast it grows cavanous . I am glad to have touched you as you have so often touched me. xx

    Aww, Willow. You speak of much in few words.

    I just added ‘Say Something’ to a play list today. As always, your prose is touching and heart wrenching. You have the special ability to place words in the exact arrangement needed for maximum punch.

      The song is beautiful isn’t it. Simple yet eloquently speaking from the soul. How are you Sheri I hope you are well.
      As for the poem it is on a subject I have some knowledge of. I have written before about how silence can become the enemy deep cavanus rifts and thick unsurmountable walls. If only we would TALK to each other. Thank you so much for your kind words. xx

    This post took me back into a room where I stood with someone I loved so very much and said – this is me leaving and unless you tell me just why I should stay I will walk out that door. He didn’t so I did – it was horrible, wrenching and in the end the best decision I could have made – he never believed that I would go and when I left he never believed I would stay gone and that was why he was so determined to avoid saying anything, he never believed he would have to. So when months later he did come to me he was even more shocked to find that I had truly meant what I said, I love you and I never want to see you again.
    Brilliant post – can I ask was it personal or creative – feel free to tell me to mind my own business but it held such emotion that I wondered.

      Jen thank you for sharing this part of your life. You are a very brave woman what you did took immense courage. I am glad that you stuck to your guns.
      I wrote this post from personal knowledge it still resonates with me now. I would never tell you or anyone to mind their own business, if I post I am answerable to that post. xx

        I feel the same way but I do try to make an effort to ask before the whole – I’m curious – sets in.
        I did suspect it was personal there was an edge of rawness not normally obvious in your writing that made this a painful and moving read.

        Yes I have written about this subject before but like you say I think I caught the essence of the situation this time. Life is harsh at times but we usually find a way to cope we have to , don’t we.

        That we do – we either cope or curl up, never been fond of curling up myself. Have done it – for too long once but since then I promised myself that would never give that kind of power to another, bad enough if they hurt you it’s worse when they can gloat about it.

        Yes there is nothing worse than someone who wants to control your every move then says it is because they love you that is not love that is oppression. I guess we all curl up and submit at some point hopefully we all get to see the light and stand up a say NO. I can’t understand why one person would want to do that to another. I know ( not the same as understanding) with many it is because they do not feel secure in themselves, not good enough so they over compensate… Others well some are just plain bad or lost … Hey this is deep 😉

        Well it’s not the weekend so it’s ok to wax philosophical about different things. On the weekend however we devote ourselves [or I do at least] to the Weekend Funny challenge and dissolve into giggles and snorts rivalling a teen sleepover.
