The Ocean's Tide

Contributed by jamesstockdale on Monday, 16th April 2018 @ 02:45:11 PM in AEST
Topic: SadPoetry

Have you ever been so, so, sad
Deep, deep, down inside
To the point that you know not who
In your soul still resides
Has your life been and cycle of push and pull
Just like the ocean/'/s tide
A body left twisting in the wind
Caught in circumstances you can/'/t seem to mend
A depressing journey that has no apparent end
No friends
No one to help you to defend
Your eyes awaken to darkness
What awaits you are only the visions you care not to see
That is what it/'/s like to be me

I can feel the emotional torture in your words
I know that place too
where you are trapped on your island paradise
by Ill trade winds...

You squeeze out all the emotions of this poem
Over the readers head.
Deep and oozing with a lonely helplessness.

Powerful and compelling James. So vivid and descriptive that I started worrying about you!
Makes me wonder how many others experience life in a similar way.
We tend to avoid sad people, but in truth, they are the ones that need us most.

// Curses, I had not seen this one either!!!! And I wish I had. This is so me it`s you me you me me you you ... we`re connected, somehow.

That`s what it`s like to be me too. Maybe not all the time but I do have these moments.

// Thank you//.

Poetry is much like a great photo, a single "moment in time" capturing many feelings and emotions. Yet, they are very alive; creating stirrings within the readers who form visual "pictures" of the expressed emotions within the Poem. ©
