    MYSTERIOUS ENEMY

     

    Private hell inside of me;

                One I’m not to show.

    Slithering darkness… engulfs me slowly

                "RESIST ALL EFFORTS TO... GO!”

     

    Mindfully, I face it down and

                implore its source be revealed.

    Tho’ not until I step away from myself

                is the enemy unconcealed.

     

    Then, there in sackcloth wrapped

                as the fog begins to recede

    all methods tried, resources tapped

                the image is of me.

    That theme baffles me in life all the time. Great way of saying when times are troubled and people's actions hurt us most the one thing best to remember is to look at ourselves and the way we react to the stresses that get us down. You are one great poet!

    Thank you for your kind thoughts and words.

    Poetry is not a turning loose of emotion, but an escape from emotion.

    T. S. Eliot (1888-1965) American-English poet and playwright.
