Divulging Secrets

Poem Commentary

written during a difficult time in my life, which did eventually pass

Divulging Secrets

It’s far easier to be honest with a blank piece of paper

Than it is with a loved one.

I can ‘say’ everything

That I’m too scared to give voice to.

I need purpose, motivation, a reason to live.

My life is spinning out of control in slow motion

And I’m not motivated enough to stop it.

I feel like a vital part of me is off in a far corner,

Huddled on the floor, crying.

I wish for endless sleep,

Or Heaven,

Or life,

But all seem unattainable.

A tremendously moving .. self philosophical write i've truly enjoyed reading .. the fine talent expressed .. i'm not enjoying the mood during this past situation .. i'm enjoying the talent. A great self purging work!

Yes, it was a dark time, but fortunately writing proved cathartic as always. Thank you for the kind review!

The true philosopher and the true poet are one, and a beauty, which is truth, and a truth, which is beauty, is the aim of both.

Ralph Waldo Emerson, American Poet (1803-1882)
