Feeling like wet sand, dripping 
                         Spellbound in my thoughts, tripping 
                        Sense of loss, stripped, ever gripping 
                      Vanished focus, outside energy, seeping 
                          Wondering, altered states, reaping 
                        What new direction follows, peeking 
                         Shallow anguish, relentless stealing 
                          Skin crawls with torment, grieving 
                        Reaching out for a savior, screaming 
                          Purpose calls out, for it’s meaning 
                       Time is no more, a new era, gleaming 
                         Resolve brings forth subtle dreaming
                                         -M. Jacobs

I like how each line of this, triggers a different feeling. It's reads in a very random way, but also works as an entire piece. Well done - 10 from me



Thanks for finding "Waiting" I appreciate your comments and staying in touch with me on your thoughts about my poems. I value your perspective very much.

Quite a philosophical work of a mixed myriad of raw, naked emotions descending .. "feeling like wet sand" .. waking in a calm dream on an isolated beach .. very far away. You are a Mensa member! Great! Thank you dmj1 for your vote per my poem : The Final Decisions per week 4 per the survivor contest. This poem is the actual January Poet Of The Month winner though not recognized.



Thanks Bear for your thoughtful perspective on "Waiting", I appreciate you stopping by my page and checking mine, too. I will back to read more of yours.

Thanks Ken for your supportive thoughts and for checking out "Waiting".

Poetry is not a turning loose of emotion, but an escape from emotion.
