Poem #31 Sadness


How can the sadness in my heart

Be expressed in mere words?

The agony, fear and hopelessness

Have drowned my spirit for many days.

I crave for peace and stillness

Within my long tormented soul.

When will I be delivered forever

From this pain?

I escape from the cruel reality

Into the warm comfort of your loving arms.

I am drawn into the soft cocoon

Of your ever tender, enfolding love.

My joy is but transitory.

The cold still remains.

My soul bleeds.

I am going.

Love me.
