Hollow

Post  BC Williams on Tue Apr 03 2012, 20:21



Why am I so flat and still?
No words do I dandle,
no thoughts can I anchor,
no singing in my soul;
as that familar roar has left my will.

I feel everything
but then, nothing at all.
These voices:
as a churning, chatoyant mobile
have become a metronome of shushed vocals.

My mind cannot recall
just how wonderful it is to be free -
to write coherent verse in metrical time
that my soul might weep in grateful sighs.
That me, I no longer can see.

Thanks girls. Might just be me being over dramatic, but I do have an appointment on the 24TH. This 'change' thing is kicking butt . . . I've suffered depression before but affraid this is so much more. How's a poet supposed to survive being in this body? I want to turn back, yet I want it to be done!

Look inside where you hide,
there deep insdie you shall find youself.
She has not gone completely,
just hidden away.

When the time comes,
she will show herself.
Till that time know that,
we all are here for you.

To make you laugh,
and help you smile.
To help you.....
sing once again.

Love ya Bev BIG hug

affraid Is that YOU Dori? affraid Awww, thank you sweetie! It's so great to see you here. Auntie bev will survive. Been thinking, and it's just that this thing is part of the 'growing up' stage . . . when a woman turns into an older version of . . . hot doh deep thought now what was I sayin'?

Anyway . . . glad to see you. I expect to 'read' you soon too:-)

Love you too Ms Dori hug

Yep, it's me Auntie Bev,

I take anti-wackey meds to keep the hot deep thought doh affraid away, I'm hoping to be getting off them soon though I so HATE taking them.
Then there is Mr. Depression, I was hit by him last night, heard from boyfriend and the blue bird of happiness scared him away.

I found and posted my poem "BLUE BIRD OF HAPPINESS" I will try and write some poems this weekend.

BIG hug bird heart give flowers
