On the Way to Mending

November 1, 2009
I can't control it
this flood of emotions
It carries me along
I spin in the currents

of love
of life

I am awash in memories
the good and the bad
Hope is the life vest
I forgot to put on today

Those who would help me
are driven away
by my anger
It isolates me
driving me further out to sea

At last I am able
to call for help
and in the black waters

of despair
of hate

The sun rises
black becomes purple
Purple turns to love
love to sandy beaches

Where, with arms outstretched
my family waits
welcoming me home

I looked at your work and think your poems are awesome! I like how you put it in the one comment, how you write your feelings until there is nothing left to explain. :) Writing is amazing like that ;)
