Lightening’s Agony

***Not indicative of the place I am right now. I am extremely happy and doing very very very well. 🙂 ***
Brilliant flashes
jagged streaks across the night sky
ripping at my clothes.
I am freezing.
Standing on the water’s edge
I bleakly wonder
do I really want to drown?
Dark whorls
dance across the midnight depths
facet of life unsold
overpowering agony
sink to the sand
head upon my chest.
life force flooding
rapt am I
with the emotions fleeing
I no longer know how to feel.
when I reached to take your hand
I begged you to understand
to not leave me senseless.
I allowed time
to ripen around
clasping your fingers with mine.
Bewildered I was
when you tore free
anger blurring your face.
This monster
abasing me
I knew not who you were.
Wretched desire
I lay head on the sand
moon pregnant in the sky
chilling water
lapping at my face.

This space is where I share stories about myself and my life and the creative poetry that stirs my soul.
