The Mind

The whispers from the wind consume her mind.

It speaks lies.

Others around her are enemies in her eyes

Lies and disseat fill her ears.

The earth fills her mind with destruction and chaos

The trees watch her  waiting for the moment to strike. To destroy her fragile being

The silence around her speaks of infidelity and treason.

Her heart reminds her of what is to come.

The night brings her grief. It opens a way for past life to consumer her present and destroy her future.

As she dreams, her mind tortures her with images of her past or of events she prays she could experience

She wakes to a new day, but still has the nights events engraved into her mind

DeepEclipse commented on The Mind


Sounds like the true drifter. Against every odd. Leaving nothing but a restless mind. Ready to die but wanting to live. (She wakes to a new day, but still has the nights events engraved into her mind) - The twisted balance between night and day is my most loved attribute towards poetry. I like how you balanced the two in this line. Well written.

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

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