    Poem Commentary

    I am hurting and I thought if I just wait it out there will be a difference, just for things to remain the same and for me to accept in silence.

    I CRY

    My grief consumes me
    swallowed in my sorrow
    I'm silenced
    It's only through my pain
    that I know I can feel
    Abandon is the happiness
    I know no more
    I succumb to my solitude
    and I cry
    Empty is my spirit
    grasping at life
    lost in the thoughts
    of what ought to be
    yearning to live again
    Found is the reality
    of what is
    and what is not
    and so I cry
    Eyes wide open
    to what had me blind
    motionless to what is compelling
    bound to indifference
    what is
    has always been
    Where is the hope?
    Once I stop believing
    How can I fear tomorrow?
    When I am not living for today
    I'm ashamed of the things
    I come to accept
    my heart aches
    and I cry
    Love has no boundaries
    no loyalty
    no conscience
    it deceived me before
    and the truth still remains
    but so do I
    I forgive
    I live
    and I cry

    "Love has no boundaries no loyalty no conscience it deceived me before." Intriguing line but, I must admit that I was stumped at the idea of love deceiving. I loked this one especially the hope of forgiveness at the end.

    You must be one of my biggest fan... You read a lot of my work and I greatly appreciate that... This was a very low time in my life and I felt betrayed by God, family, life but forgiveness was the beginning of the healing process... Thanks for your support!! Read ON...

    very powerful! sad, but the vision, pain and quest for inner peace is oh so present. passionate words... i felt your intensity in each line; the hate and agony of betrayal; and the forgiveness in knowing that we all are human. i've read other works from your being, and i must say, "that i am truly impressed. you are a young and gifted writer. your personal experiences are evident in this masterpiece. very well composed and most revealing... thejazzpoet

    I do love again. I love me and it feels good.

    Poetry is either something that lives like fire inside you or else it is nothing, an empty formalized bore around which pedants can endlessly drone their notes and explanations.
