There she was, trudging over blurred thoughts,
heaving patience to a higher level,
oppressing unrealistic feelings within,
undressing wounds that she didn’t know existed,
giving depression more space to settle in,
hijacking the little sanity left for her,
twisting everything to fit behind a smile.
In that void, she sat with silence and
shared a conversation
For once her spirit is floating in front of her,
reminiscing over whatever she likes,
emptying the tears that drowned her, while
embracing her own self.
**The acrostic is for a quote by William Shakespeare
I really like this poem, the title and the use of acrostic to convey a secondary message 'thought is free'.
I will say that 'emptying the tears that drowned her, while/embracing her own self.' made me stumble a bit, maybe say 'emptying the tears that drowned her all the while/embracing her own self' or something to that effect.
