(This is just a poem, a product of an over active imagination, no reflection of my thoughts)

Piercing the night, a scream,
replete with pain, agony,
escaping through clenched teeth,
shattering the silence.
Yelling, crying, NO! NO! NO!, please NO!

Lips in motion, words erupting, no emotion,
daggers piercing a heart.
Eyes filling, tears spilling.
No mistake, an ache, smile fake.
Am I awake or caught in a nightmare, a dream?

Trust destroyed, promises made, broken.
Love diminished, finished.
How can you walk away,
leaving a life in disarray?
Never again, a fool no more, I matter.

    There is a lot of frustration in this write that
    screams with pain as well as anger...and it
    gave such a clear image for the mind too.
    Take care

    Great job on the poem. It's almost like a reoccuring nightmare. I agree with the release of so many emotions that have been bottled up for to long finally being released.
    Love Cindy
