Weep and Wither

I weep and
wither
lose my life
essence
tears and
water
no longer
sustaining
me
my soul.

I can’t keep
weeping
no more
left in
me
to squeeze
out
dry
dry
dry
inside
withering.

Don’t cry for
me
I had
said
but you came
along
and felt my
pain
held my withered
self
in your care
your hand
and drop a
tear
that saved
me.

Raining tears

Strike out on
your own
tears on your
cheek
tell me I’m
not alone
whispers in the
wind;
hearts broken
pieces crushed
never again
until the
void calls
in the
rain.

Abyss

What is this
fear
lodged in my
throat
a lump that
won’t go
sudden in
coming
staying
won’t leave
growing and
clutching
then sinking and
sinking deep
into the
pits of my
stomach.

Lull in the Storm

Do you hear the waves
crashing against the
rocks?
Cliff pulling up
from raging
seas below
ragged edges jutting
out to
nowhere
winds wailing
passing
lost to the next
crash.

I whisper
whisper
into the endless
assault of
nature
and wonder –
will they be
lost
or
elevated
gone
or
embedded
into the cracks
big and small
on the face
of this
cliff?

Will you be
able to
hear me
even amidst
the
storm
or see my
heart
written along
the lines
of
pain?

Raging
raging waters
come soothe
this lulling
ache.

So what?

They keep telling
you off
They keep telling
you it’s all for
nothing
They keep telling
you that you’re
never good
enough
They keep telling
and telling
and telling
and saying
and whispering
until it sinks
in
inside you.

Whatever you
do
they’ll lambast
you.

So why give
in
when they’ll always
tell you the
same thing
anyway?

Just do
Do what you
want
what you
love.
