About the Poem

Sometime in everyone's life, they feel betrayed and all alone, like everything is a lie. You are trapped in a world of anger and rage and you can only see red through your eyes. No one seem to see when you are going through this time, or understand why.

But it is times like these that God takes you in His arms and tames your wild mind and assures you, you are never alone.

(CLAP,CLAP,CLAP,CLAP)Beautifull. I must say you are talented and bleesed. i've been there. i just hope you knew how to let it go,and move on. i wish you a life of sweet pleasure,kindness. and love much success in all you do. for some women . one hit is to many & for others . too many is never enough. its crazy . right
I absolutely loved your poem. Maybe it's because emotions are so true and sincere. I loved the poem very much especially,the second stanza. I find the sequence of emotions in it,so powerful and absolutely true. First, loneliness,fear,screaming for help,tearful cries. This logic sequence generates a sense of reality in the reader. As a whole,the poem is very beautiful and very expressive and that is the reason I find it amazing,and so will everybody who reads it. Well done:)

If These Walls Could Talk

If these walls could talk,
you'd know my body is dead,
my mind has been taken over,
that's why I am so scared,
I can't control it,
anger is making me blind,
I've been left here on my own
chained to a hate of some kind.
If these walls could talk.

If these walls could talk,
you'd know about my fears,
about all those nights I screamed for help,
about all my fallen tears.
You'd know about the demons
haunting me at night,
you'd be able to help me
keep my fire alight,
if these walls could talk.

If these walls could talk
they would say that it's all right,
God sends His angels
to look over me at night.
They'd encourage me,
say though I am alone
it doesn't mean Im on my own.
He watches me, from above
and showers me with all His love,
if only these walls could talk.
