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.
