    my sorrow weeps

    my sorrow weeps with a quiet calm
    as anxious dread builds
    my heart sings a woeful song
    and my memories set to kill


    i withdraw once again
    from the the ones that i love
    and unconsciously shift my focus
    to the ones that ive lost


    my sadness cries with sobbing pain
    anxiety continues to grow
    my heart beats a steady ache
    as my thoughts feed my sorrow


    once again im absent
    to the world that i love
    my eyes are seemingly vacant
    as i sit in sombre alone


    my sorrow weeps and my sadness cries
    as anxiety and dread fill my chest
    my heart sings to my woeful mind
    a steady beat of pain and unrest

    Dano this piece touches me to the very depths of my soul. What an awesome description to something I have felt, still feel and I still engage in disengaging, for me the line that hit me the most was .................. my sorrow weeps and my sadness cries

    I could feel the chill of the cold, unhappy place you describe. Your way with words is singular, and your unhesitancy to put them to hard work is more than admirable.

    thanks chaos

    Poetry is not an expression of the party line. It's that time of night, lying in bed, thinking what you really think, making the private world public, that's what the poet does.

    Allen Ginsberg (1926-1997) U.S. poet.
