i think it happened again


i think it happened again

i think it happened again
i let me mind slip
cobwebbed memories
dust themsleves off
and i am left to deal with the aftemath

i think it happened again
i let me thoughts shift
ancient pain
opens bleeding wounds
and i am left to try to stop the flow

i think it happened again
i felt my heart skip
burning anxiety
fills the pit in my chest
and i am left to put out the flames

i think it happened again
i felt my soul rip
stitches come unsewn
exposing the nerves at my core
and i am left to try to dull the pain

i think it happened again
i let my grasp slip
the grip i thought i had
has simply fallen away
and i am left to gather myself once again

Dano .. Man you got inside my head with this one. I can so relate .. especially right now with my present plight. But, one must pull themselves up by the bootstraps and move on. If not .. we will be forced to remain in the sadness of our souls. Awesome write pal! :) Ken

Dano, Your matter of fact tone here is a wonderful asset in a poem where the body seemingly suffers, yet the poet would not willingly admit that. I love the whimsy in the voice. A clever and admirable write. ty ginga



thanks so much ginga

Anxiety is a terrible thing when it causes us to chase our tail again. You have pointed this out quite well with this well written poem, Dano. Very good poem for the pen of Dano.
