When the pain of life grabs you, where do you find comfort? Many many people do not find it anywhere at all. They either wander lost in the emotions that are trapped within them or live angrily from one day to the next. They never realize they are holding on to anger, resentment, and sadness and that it is making them bitter and cynical. Then there are those of us who have found a way to peace. The overwhelming sea of emotion that is part of life, is poured out onto paper or canvas or molded into works of art. That is only a few examples. In my experience the creative soul is also a more peaceful soul. My outlet of choice is writing. I write what I feel, what I see and smell. I write about things that are happy and some that are tragic. Whatever it may be, I find contentment and healing.
Illuminate my life,
Dreams and desires reside
Then ride away
On the sunset of angry loneliness. Circular searching for
A little peace
A corner of the table cloth
A breath of significance in your world.
Darkened days become darker nights
Another chance at hell on your way to heaven.
When the bitterness decides to seep from the soul
And the anger leaves its place
Along with it will go
The memory of your face.
Standing on the edge of goodbye.
