Poetry allows the release of my innermost feelings. Let me explain by painting a picture in your mind with words!
Crash! Silence of the Falling Purposes!
I'm falling again like a tree crashing down amid the forest
No one see's it, can't fathom what silence it brings
It thrusts me into another direction that eludes me
When I say things that I don't mean during the heights of despair
They leave my mouth, and the words get stuck without repair
Words are spoken, the heart then shatters
I grasp my tongue, but the words only clatter!
Is that me? I truly didn't mean to say that!
It's all jumbled up inside my chest like a heart attack!
I'm drowning in the travesty that is created from within
I try my hardest to keep "in check" but reality doesn't win
Emotions soar like an eagle in flight, gliding against the tide
It takes me to un-empowerment killing me deep inside
I already feel bad enough - don't need no hangman's noose
To remind me of how my words sound or how they are used
I'm defeated in my mindset, confused at what thinking brings
I used to be so careful then the mental issues swing
I don't want to live like this, and I don't expect you to either
Words they cut like a sword when the heater gets heated
Douse the fumes, throw away the switch! Think before you speak
That's easier to be "written" than spoken, it doesn't mean your weak!
Reverse the tide, but then again that's only half of it!

This is a very good poem, Donna. It really describes that bad place we can get to sometimes, then, say things we really don't mean. The problem is the hurt feelings and the guilt we feel.
Very well done!
