Poem: A Storm Brewing within My Soul

I am a writer. My passion is poetry. I feel words connect people together and help us to understand the feelings we share.


A storm
brewing within my brain
makes me take flight,
leaving behind my
comfort zone.

My inner world
is crumbling
breaking me into pieces,
leaving me shattered,
endless thoughts
racing through my mind.

Tormented by anguish
not knowing which direction
to turn,
I remain motionless
with a heart of stone.

Feelings of betrayal,
fear of being alone,
restarting my journey
to a destination unknown,
leaves me lost
feeling no emotion.

"The Storm Within My Heart" by Billy Walker
