Release!

The  wind  blew  and  I  cried

My  tears  fell, they  burned  as  they dried .

All I  had  was gone, ripped  from  me  torn,  set free

Sinews stretched  and  torn, all that’s  good  stolen  from me.

 

I screamed  blue  murder  and  railed  at  the  moon

I  held  my  breath, ripped  at  my  skin , bit my lip  until I  swooned.

I shouted  and  swore  that I  would  take  no  fucking  more…..

Then  pockets  full of  rocks  I  threw  myself  to  ocean floor.

 

Silence, cold  and  deeply  cocooned. Life’s  light  from me  begins  to sweep.thankfully  devoid.

I am empty   of  all feelings . Hardly  aware  of  all  I  have  done, I am vaguely  annoyed

Crawling  from the  wreckage that I  have  become  all  self-respect  and  life  slipping  away

Drowning  slowly but  thankfully. Thank God  I  will not  have  to face another  day!

    I hope this letting-out, letting-go works, Willow.

    Aye… dangerous fantasy, milady; almost too strong… It is a lovely poem, but, a bit dark; I don’t like to think of you in such a frame of mind, so, I’m glad to see from the above comments, you’re okay…. Be well, and happy, my friend…

    I don’t believe this is an easy way to go but desperation…well there’s Virginia Woolf…

    An amazing expression Willow- you are a brilliant writer, the way you capture words and feelings and turn them into beauty.
