The fear of the unknown -
such a paralyzing loneliness
that lingers in misty fear
and seeps through the body
drenching the soul in a rain
so thick, so dark, so heavy
that the ears can not wake
from the hallucinations
of the voices within my mind
Yet as I walk slowly through
this broken day, I pray -
for the hand of a greater power
to guide me, give me strength
and calm the fear that grows inside.
And I pray - you will wake tomorrow
and the silence that lays upon your lips
will become ... even a whisper
*I hope tomorrow is a brighter day Mom*
Day 27 in hospital
I'm really sorry you to go through this, my prayers are with your mother Lu to a safe recovery. I found the emotions pelt out like tears on a suffering rose bud, the pain engulfing each word, the hope recovering into prayers and wishes.
I love the way you began stanza two with a prayer type concept with a hope of a miracle to heal all the illness and bring life to what it once was. I felt exactly the same when my aunt died, all I wanted was for her to open her eyes and to show us her amazingly warming smile and tell us everything is all right.
Yet although she is gone her memories remain alive inside my still beating heart, I pray that your mum and your family is safe and that nothing happens to her.
All in all this was a heart felt, powerful and touching poem.
I'm so sorry you have to go through this Lu but you should know you are already strong and that you & your family will make it through this. I pray your mom gets better. Know that my thoughts are always with you and your family. Such sadness in your words but I have faith that the sun will shine soon :) Love you!
Whoa, I can relate soooo much to this! This is really strong and really touching. Hit such a nerve of emotions with me can't say enough about it. The way you open it drew me in and made me want to read more, I was so easily able to feel your emotions and thoughts throughout this poem. I can relate is so many ways, you did a great job. Keep up the amazing work.
