Silent prayers


  • Sadness

    Silent prayers

    I reveal to you, my innermost workings

    My hopes, my fears, my revelations

    I tell you the way that life suprises me

    the way it sometimes lets me down

    I feel that words have served me well

    but when I try to tell you how I feel

    These words seem lost on you

    I hear you pause and then explain to me

    what you think I mean

    It sounds like another language I was speaking

    A language you could not translate

    My heart hurts and I feel lonely

    I feel seperated from you by some unseen force

    I cannot seem to penetrate

    I feel the distance between us

    and when I re-explain to you

    what I meant, I feel a kind of indifference

    my feelings are hurt and I am not sure

    what to say

    how could someone I love be so far away

    I read you a poem that was meant for you

    your face like stone

    I explain it and then feel more alone

    I die inside and revive myself

    your voice holds the sound of aggravation

    while my heart feels such elevation

    are you meant to be my challenge or my curse

    I feel a mixture of sadness and hope

    should I give up or learn to cope

    should I try to thaw the ice around your heart

    or realize we are better off apart

    my heart cracks and silently

    I hold back tears and pray for you and me

    Sometimes no matter how hard we try to get through, how much we hope they're listening with the same excitement and elation of sharing that we have when we say it to them... they just don't have it in them to really care about it very much... it may not be that they don't care, really... they're just not cut out of the same mold... they're the proverbial opposite attraction the cliche' warns us about... we have ask ourselves, are we just as attentive and interested in what makes them excited...??? Good write expressing the prayer for love, while explaining the tragedy of indifference...

    In science one tries to tell people, in such a way as to be understood by everyone, something that no one ever knew before. But in poetry, it's the exact opposite.

    Franz Kafka (1883-1924) Czech writer.
