About the Poem
This poem was very healing to write. I have a tough image, but inside I tremble like the moons reflection on a body of water. Take a look into my soul as you read.
|by Douglas Burruss|
|There is a world beyond this pain
A wall of fortitude shall stand in vain
An abundance of emptiness caves in from each side
Standing from the bottom, blinded to the light
Do you hear my cry?
It is silent
Do you see my fear?
It is giant
I cast off my shield, a heart made of stone
Open to you are inflicted scars that you own
I want to hide in the sanctuary of your promise
But I can’t find my way through the sedentary darkness
