About the Poem

Digital Passions has inspired me to think more about this description process. Initially, I thought it might detract from what I was trying to say in the poem but in this case I can see the value. Everyone carries pain inside them and sometimes the reliving of that pain in your mind can be quite a physical experience almost overwhelming.

Walls

No space around me
Stifling walls
Closing off my view
Numbing thoughts
Aching soul
Suffocating dreams

Memory stirs
Pain wells up
Trapping me again
Nowhere to go
But inside myself
Devoid of any aim

Too scared to move
Barriers raised
Hearts freedom restrained
Tentative
Withdrawing hand
Fear of hurt again

Thick breath and clouds
Within my head
Oppressive atmosphere
Numbing thoughts
Aching soul
Suffocating dream

Danielle
I like the poem cause it sounds the same way I'm going through. My ex-boyfriend cheated on me . we was going to do so much together he lied. Every time I get around another guy I cant trust them. I allways think they are lieing too me. But anyways it's a very good poem.

Thank you for sharing this poem. it spoke to me. it spoke of my struggle, often unexplainable in words. You described it well. Others really do feel like I and we are not alone.
